Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton tied the knot on July 3 in Oklahoma, and Stefani made sure her three sons were an important part of the intimate ceremony. According to the newlyweds’ good friend Carson Daly, who officiated the wedding, Stefani’s sons, Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 7, joined in the day by reading a verse from the Bible.
During Thursday’s episode of Today, Craig Melvin asked, “Did the boys attend a ceremony this weekend?” He replied, “Yes, they did. Yes.” “They did a reading,” he shared, via Yahoo! News. “Yes, they parted ways first Corinthians 13.” A popular Bible verse at weddings, 1 Corinthians 13 says, “Love is patient, love is good. He does not envy, he does not brag, he is not proud. does not get angry easily, he does not keep any trace of wrongs. Love does not rejoice in evil but rejoices in truth.
Along with the reading, the boys were present throughout the ceremony thanks to the embroidery on their mother’s veil, which included their first names as well as “Blake” and “Gwen” bordered by two white roses.
Daly previously provided details of the wedding during today’s episode of Monday, July 5, sharing that Shelton wrote Stefani a song for her wishes. “I went to see them months ago and said, ‘I think you should write your own vows. We shouldn’t just repeat after me.’ The voice host called back. “They were really reluctant to do it, but… they’re two of the best songwriters in the world, we want to hear your words.”
“At the wedding, Gwen starts off, and she wrote this, ‘Since I was a little girl …’ And she crushes, not a dry eye in the church …. It was so perfect,” a- he continued. “I said to Blake when she was done, ‘Great, mate.’ And Blake starts off by saying, ‘Gwen always gives me a hard time because I don’t write enough songs, so I wrote a song.’ The guitar comes in the frame, the stool, the next thing you know, he wrote her a song, he sang her a song while he cried that he wrote especially for her. … Not a dry eye in the house. “
Daly added that the wedding ceremony was “perfectly them”. “It was as stylish and fancy and cool as Gwen, and it was country and home and fun like Blake is,” he said. “They just work. They’re an unlikely couple. It’s like pairing delicious fried chicken with a glass of champagne. On paper, on the menu, it doesn’t seem to work, but it works. comfort food with class, and everyone sticks to it. “
