Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton tied the knot on Saturday, July 3, in front of a small group of family and friends.
Stefani wore two Vera Wang wedding dresses – one for the ceremony, and one for the reception – that included heartfelt nods to Shelton and her children.
The first dress was a silk and tulle gown featuring a plunging neckline and a cutaway back, Vera Wang wrote in an Instagram post. Wang added that the veil was hand embroidered with Shelton and Stefani’s names, alongside the names of the No Doubt singer’s children, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
“As a mom of 4 boys myself, seeing Gwen have her kids names embroidered on the bottom of her veil along with Blake’s name just makes my whole heart full,” Sabrina Biziarkek, co-owner of Studio This Is Photography, wrote in an Instagram post.
“I am in love with all the details that she chose to include in her day to pay homage to her love for family. From her wedding cake, which was a replica of her parents cake when they got married, to these names on the veil….Each element included all the people most important to her. How special. Couldn’t love this more,” she added.
Stefani’s reception gown also included nods to the couple’s family. It was embroidered with a pair of hand-sewn lovebirds symbolizing the couple, and three baby lovebirds representing Stefani’s children, as Wang wrote in another Instagram post.
The first image Stefani shared from the wedding was a shot of her flipping her veil. Bustos wrote on Instagram that they chose it purposefully “to officially UN-VEIL the fact she’d gotten married.”
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Stefani shared a new photo of herself, Shelton, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, taken after the ceremony.
“Blake loves the kids and had no problem adjusting to a new role as an extra dad,” an anonymous source told People magazine after the nuptials. Another anonymous source, cited as an “industry insider” told the publication: “They each put the other first and appreciate each other. They are seamless as a family.”
Bustos, Haenn, and Zangardi did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
