Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton hosted an intimate affair for the July wedding and the ceremony is still making waves.

In a new post by the No Doubt alum, 45, Stefani shared new clips of her selecting the Vera Wang dress for the nuptials, which included 40 something family members and friends. "The moment i said yes to the dress," the singer captioned the post, which was shared on Monday (September 20). She also tagged her stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn. Stefani rocked not one, but two, custom Wang wedding dresses for the big day. One of them leaned more into the classic side and was paired with a hand-embroidered veil, which featured the names of her three kids, Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12 and Apollo, 7, as well as her and Blake’s names. She went on to change into "a custom lily-white Italian silk crepe and hand tumbled tulle strapless mini dress" for the afterparty, per Wang, who shared photos from the event.

While the event didn't feature any of the couple's star-studded friends, Shelton spoke about their decision to make the affair a small one. "So I've had awkward conversations with, with so many of my friends since it's ‘Oh, oh yeah. I read y'all. Yeah, I read about that. How was that?’" Shelton explained during a press outing. "You know, I was like, ‘Listen, you know, we kept it small, get over it, you know, it's not about you.'"

If you remember correctly, Stefani and Shelton went public with their relationship in November 2015, before getting engaged in October 2020 with a ring hidden in his pick-up truck. He reportedly purchased a six-to nine-carat round solitaire diamond set on what appeared to be a platinum band.
