Miranda and Blake’s wedding photographer, Robert Evans blogged about his experience photographing Miranda & Blake’s wedding! He had nothing but great things to say about the two and the wedding and we also get a few more details! Seriously, I can’t wait to see these photos!
Read what he had to say below!
It was a perfect Texas day in the middle of May for a wedding. Location, Don Strange Ranch near Boerne, Texas, a community located approximately 45 minutes from San Antonio. The weather was perfect, the environment, beautiful but the most special part of this day was the bride and groom; not because they are two of the biggest county music artists in country music today; no what made this day so special, was how real Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton really are.
By the 550 friends and family in attendance, one can deduce how many hearts these two have touched. I too was treated like part of their family.
People often ask me what was it like to shoot a celebrity wedding as if it should be different than photographing ” Normal People” Answer: there is no difference. What makes for great wedding pictures for me is the personal connection I have with my bride and groom and the time to create photographic magic. From the first moment I meet each of them I was touched by their big hearts and contagious personalities, which made the privilege of photographing their wedding an absolute joy, not a job.
“Miranda Shelton” on her driver’s license, and “Miranda Lambert” on her album covers!
Just-married Miranda Lambert is changing her legal name in honor of her new husband Blake Shelton, a rep for the country couple confirms to Us Weekly.
Professionally speaking, however, the Grammy-winning star will keep her famous maiden name, the rep added.
Lambert, 27, tried out her new name via Twitter on Monday, two days after she and The Voice coach Shelton, 34, tied the knot in Texas.
“Mrs. Shelton here!” she wrote. “Winning!”
550 friends and family — including Reba McEntire, Kelly Clarkson, Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley, Charles Kelly and the Bellamy Brothers — watched as the couple of 5 years exchanged their vows at a ranch late Saturday evening, where the bride wore her mother’s wedding dress.
Clarkson was thrilled to be part of the bash, she wrote on Facebook Sunday. “It was the greatest wedding/reception I’ve ever been to!” the singer, 29, raved.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert may have enjoyed venison harvested by the bride during their Saturday night wedding, but their nuptials did have at least one glamorous element: the bling. The lovebirds, who tied the knot at the Don Strange Ranch in Boerne, Texas, exchanged custom-made rings designed by San Antonio jeweler Johnathon Arndt. (Arndt also crafted Carrie Underwood‘s engagement ring and wedding band.)
According to a release, Arndt created a 5-carat white diamond “Eternity” ring for Lambert, designed to complement her stunning engagement ring. Shelton’s wedding band was a bit more unique, based on one of his tattoos. Arndt first made a sketch of the ink, then spent 60 days hand engraving the ring, which features a black diamond mounted on the inside — a special request from Lambert.
As for the bride’s wedding day look, Arndt says that she walked down the aisle wearing a $1.2 million three-tier, 30-carat diamond necklace, plus diamond teardrop earrings to match. For the reception, the country cutie added a $250,000 cocktail ring from Arndt’s 2011 “Bombay” collection, a sparkler that boasted 60 carats of multi-colored sapphires set in 18-karat black gold. Guess everything is bigger in Texas!
Congratulations! Heart Like Mine is Miranda’s second Billboard #1 and her third Mediabase Chart #1.
Help it stay at the top and REQUEST the song!
Her heart may belong to new husband Blake Shelton, but Miranda Lambert’s single ‘Heart Like Mine’ belongs to the fans, as it has claimed the top spot on both the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard country charts. Brad Paisley’s ‘Old Alabama’ is No. 2 on both charts, followed by Sara Evans’ ‘A Little Bit Stronger,’ which falls to No. 3.
Miranda explains there is a lot of her own personality and life experiences in ‘Heart Like Mine,’ which she co-wrote with her ‘Nashville Star’ co-competitor, Travis Howard, and Pistol Annies’ pal, Ashley Monroe. “That’s a look in to my world. Just being a real person, there’s no place for judgment,” the singer-songwriter explains. “I grew up in church, and my mom always says I cut my teeth on a church pew [laughs], but I have also been judged a lot, and probably judged a lot myself. But I feel like there’s nobody to do that except for that man upstairs, so this song’s really about embracing who you are and knowing that, no matter what, somebody loves you without condition.”
The country princess, who is currently on her honeymoon with the ‘Honey Bee’ singer, is scheduled to return to the road June 3 in Cary, N.C.

Finally, it’s official!” Although the wedding pictures aren’t scheduled to be published till later this week, official photographer Robert Evans has been speaking on his blog about the couple’s special day. The photographer described the weather as being “perfect” and the environment “beautiful” but noted, “The most special part of this day was the bride and groom, not because they are two of the biggest county music artists in country music today, no what made this day so special, was how real Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton really are”. Evans revealed that the couple posed for pictures before the nuptials so that they were free to do whatever they wanted after the ceremony, adding, “A wedding is a celebration and when the months of planning are over, It’s time to Play!”.

It’s official: Miranda Lambert is a married woman!
The 27-year-old “House That Built Me” singer wed longtime love Blake Shelton late Saturday evening at Texas’ Don Strange Ranch, the couple confirms to Us Weekly exclusively.
Wearing her mother’s wedding dress, Lambert walked down the aisle in front of 550 family members and friends (including Reba McEntire, Cee Lo Green, Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley, Charles Kelly and the Bellamy Brothers).
“I’m married to my best friend!” Lambert told Us after the ceremony. “Looking forward to a lifetime of laughter.”
Added Shelton, 34: “I wanted to be married to Miranda the day I proposed. Finally, it’s official!”
Dating since 2006, The Voice mentor asked for Lambert’s hand in marriage last May. “I fumbled it up a little,” he told Us of the proposal. “It’s funny how you rehearse those things and go over what you want to say, but I probably screwed it up.”
Fortunately, Lambert didn’t seem to notice. “He did a really good job,” she insisted. “He’s always nervous around me, though — and that’s how I like it!”
This is the first marriage for Lambert; Shelton was married to Kaynette Williams from 2003-2006.
