They did!

As expected, The Voice's Blake Shelton and country superstar Miranda Lambert became mister and missus Saturday evening, when they swapped vows in the bride's home state of Texas, E! News confirms.

Here's what went down…

While the country darlings, who have been together for five years, stayed relatively mum on the details of their big day in the lead-up to the wedding (hello, inevitable magazine exclusive!), they did let a couple of hints slip.

The bride, who wore her mother's wedding dress, walked down the aisle in front of a whopping 550 wedding attendees, including close pal and Voice guest mentor Reba McEntire, as well as Cee Lo Green, Martina McBride, and Dierks Bentley.

As for the reception, guests were, as promised, served venison.

"Last thing loaded for the wedding," Miranda tweeted earlier this week, posting a photo of deer cuts. "Harvested by…me!!!!"

As for Blake's input into the big day, he helped select the couple's good pal—country star Neal McCoyas the entertainment. And from the sound of it, that's the only responsibility Blake wanted.

"Here's the thing—I am thrilled to be married to Miranda Lambert, but I don't give a crap about weddings," he told The Country Vibe this month. "This is a big deal to her, and I'm excited for her, but I don't have a lot of input because I don't really have that many ideas about it. Every wedding I've ever gone to, I've either fallen asleep or been so miserable that I had my iPod in and nobody knew it, or I was playing Angry Birds on my phone.

"Even if it's your wedding, if you're a guy, it's boring. So, I'm ready for the actual ceremony to happen, because after that, the reception is going to be a party, and that's what I'm looking forward to."

His lack of excitement (and his sense of humor) was evident this week, when he posted a copy of his marriage license, followed by a copy of an application for a death certificate.

"I'm not going to be here for a few days so stir s--t up for me while I'm gone," he tweeted. "I'm going to get buried." Er, make that married. We're sure it was just a typo, though, right Blake?

In any case, the duo is also expected to head off on a honeymoon before returning to work, with Blake cohosting a tornado relief concert alongside McEntire in Oklahoma on May 26. From there, he'll head to Los Angeles, as the two-hour live episodes of The Voice begin June 7.
