Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were married during an intimate ceremony in Oklahoma on July 3. Voice host Carson Daly served as the officiant, and told TODAY about the couple’s emotional vows to each other:

At the wedding, Gwen starts, and she wrote this, ‘Since I was a little girl …’ And she crushes, not a dry eye in the church…” Carson recalled. “It was so perfect. I said to Blake when she was done, ‘Top that, buddy.’ And Blake starts by saying, ‘Gwen’s always giving me a hard time about not writing enough songs, so I wrote a song.'”

Blake performed the song he wrote for his new bride with tears in his eyes. Carson said he doesn’t know if Blake ever intends to release the song, but hopes he will.

Outside of their vows, Blake and Gwen’s wedding day included lots of personal touches. Their wedding cake was designed to resemble Gwen’s parents’ cake from their own wedding years ago, Blake’s dog, Betty, was a guest at the reception, and Gwen found a way to honor her three sons with her wedding ensemble.

Gwen’s chapel length veil featured the hand-embroidered names of herself, Blake, and her three sons (Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo) along the bottom.

Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo all wore matching black suits made by Suzy Perry.

Gwen’s three sons also played a meaningful role in her and Blake’s ceremony. Carson shared all the details while speaking to TODAY once more about Blake and Gwen’s wedding.

They did a [Bible] reading,” Carson said of Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo when asked if they had a part in the ceremony. “Yeah, they split up first Corinthians 13.”

This particular passage is often recited at weddings. It surely meant a great deal to Blake and Gwen to hear her boys read it during their ceremony.
