Stefani and Shelton officially got hitched over the Fourth of July weekend in chapel he built for the special occasion on his Tishomingo ranch in Oklahoma. The pop singer, 51, has three boys — Kingston (15), Zuma (12) and Apollo (7) — from her previous marriage to Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale. But she honored her new marriage with a touching tribute to her family.
“She chose a custom lily white silk georgette and hand tumbled tulle high low gown with a plunging neckline and a cut away back,” Wang broke down the gown on Instagram Monday. “The gown was worn with a lily white chapel length veil featuring hand embroidered names of Blake, Gwen, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo flanked by 2 white roses at the hem of the veil.”
But the details didn’t stop there. Stefani wore a separate, shorter dress for the wedding reception, on which hand sewn love birds represented the newly married couple — who began dating in 2015 and got engaged in 2020 — while three smaller love birds represented Kingston, Zuma and Apollo.
“For the reception she chose a custom lily white Italian silk crepe and hand tumbled tulle strapless mini dress with hand pieced silk, crystal and sequin embroidered foliage delicately trickling from the waist down the skirt,” Wang wrote in a separate Instagram post. “The embroidery is highlighted by a pair of hand sewn love birds symbolizing the couple. They are joined by 3 baby love birds representing Gwen’s children.”
The country singer, 45, added his own emotional handwritten touches to the roughly 40-person intimate ceremony, which was officiated by Carson Daly. The Voice host encouraged the prolific songwriters to pen their own vows, and Shelton wrote a tear-jerking track for his that Daly believes could be a top 40 hit. The song has a working title of “Reach the Star,” but it has not been officially announced whether Shelton will release the song for the public.
“Hopefully he’ll record it,” Daly said in a statement. “It’ll put everybody in the wedding at that moment if he records that song.”
