Carson Daly shared that he had worked on the celebrity couple’s vows for months before urging each half of the happy couple to pen their own vows.
“You guys are two of the best songwriters in the world,” said Daly. “we want to hear your words.” The co-host of the TODAY show then explained that although the two were reluctant, they agreed in the end and definitely delivered.
“At the wedding, Gwen starts, and she wrote this.. ‘Since I was a little girl, blah blah blah’ and she crushes….not a dry eye in the church,” said Daly. “It was so perfect that I said to Blake when she was done, ‘Top that, buddy.'”
A challenge that Shelton may have just won. “Blake starts by saying, ‘You know, Gwen’s always given me a hard time about not writing enough songs…so, I wrote a song,'” said Daly. “Guitar comes in, stool, next thing you know, he wrote her a song, and he sings her a song, while he’s crying, that he wrote specifically for her. ‘Reach the Star,’ I think it was called… not a dry eye in the house. That was a highlight.”
Sharing this piece of Shelton’s big day may just be one of the most memorable moments fans have been privy to.
The intimate wedding of family and friends was only shared by the newlyweds on social media. Gwen was the first half of the couple to post about the special day writing, “July 3rd 2021 ❤️gx.”
Since then, fans have gained more social media insight into what looked like a dream day for the newly Mr. and Mrs. Shelton!
While followers and fans of the freshly married couple indulge in each post, it is “No Doubt” the two are made for one another.
