"Tie It Up," she did! As previously reported by E! News, the original American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, married talent manager Brandon Blackstock at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tenn., on Sunday, Oct. 20. Built in the 1970s and nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains, the lush locale sits on 4,200 acres of greenery.
Clarkson walked down the aisle in Temperley Bridal's "Jessamine" dress from the Iris collection, E! News can exclusively confirm. "It was between these three dresses," the Grammy winner said earlier this month. For her gorgeous engagement shoot, Clarkson donned Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier.
The "Catch My Breath" crooner completed her look with a Maria Elena Headpieces headband. Clarkson carried a bouquet of sunflowers and Bluebonnets—the official flower of Texas, her home state.
Blackstock's two children, Savannah, 11, and Seth, 7, attended the couple's intimate ceremony. Clarkson shared two wedding pictures with her Twitter followers on Monday, Oct. 21.
Clarkson previously told E! News that she and Blackstock had decided against having a "big, huge" wedding. "We're just gonna go off with the kids and go get married," she said. "It's just gonna be literally, seriously small." Indeed, the groom's stepmother, country legend Reba McEntire, was out of town for a concert in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The bride and groom first met in 2006 during rehearsals for the American Country Music Awards. They began dating six years later, and in December 2012, Blackstock asked Clarkson for her hand in marriage. He proposed with a custom ring featuring a giant yellow canary diamond surrounded with white diamonds. "Brandon designed it with Johnathon Arndt!" Clarkson tweeted at the time. "They did an amazing job!"
The newlyweds recently spent $2.8 million on a mansion in Tennesse. The home spans 17,000 feet and includes seven bedrooms and nine-and-a-half baths. The estate sits on a four-acre piece of land and offers its own private, gated entry. It's the perfect place to raise a family—and Clarkson is eager to give Blackstock's children another sibling.
"I want babies, like, right off the bat!" Clarkson said on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show earlier this month. "Well, I'm totally gonna have a girl. My first child will be a girl—I know it in my soul."
