"Miss Indepedent," indeed. Kelly Clarkson's Oct. 20 wedding was so private that even the singer's own mother didn't score an invite! When the original American Idol winner married talent manager Brandon Blackstock at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tenn., only the groom's two daughters from a previous marriage were present.
There are no hard feelings on Jeanne Ann Rose's part, however, as the proud mom posted a collage of pictures from her daughter's big day via Instagram on Wednesday, Oct. 23. "My girl is all grown up and now a married lady! Such a stunning bride!" Rose wrote in the caption. "She deserves every happiness and I'm glad she finally got her Prince Charming! Mrs. Blackstock!"
Clarkson, 31, looked picture perfect wearing a Temperley Bridal gown (which retails for $7,015) and a Maria Elena Headpieces headband. Childhood BFF Ashley Donovan did the singer's makeup, and longtime pal Robert Ramos styled Clarkson's hair for the outdoor ceremony.
The "Catch My Breath" singer previously told E! News that she and Blackstock had decided against having a "big, huge" ceremony. It was a somewhat surprising confession, given that the couple's guest list once topped 200 people! "We're just gonna go off with the kids and go get married," Clarkson explained.
While her wedding may have been an exclusive event, Clarkson has invited fans to celebrate the occassion by sharing several pictures and videos online. "Thanks to everyone for all of your well wishes!" she tweeted Oct. 22.
