  • Blake Shelton said Gwen Stefani was still working on her wedding vows the night before their nuptials

Blake Shelton revealed that it took quite some time for wife Gwen Stefani to finish writing her wedding vows.

During his appearance on SiriusXM's "The Storme Warren Show," the country star shared new details about their wedding preparations as well as their July 3 nuptials. According to Shelton, their "Voice" castmate Carson Daly, who officiated their wedding, had suggested that they pen their own vows.

"He came to us and said, 'OK, but you guys have to have some responsibilities here,'" Shelton was quoted by E! News as saying. "And one of them was to write our vows."

He continued, "When it started getting like two weeks away, she was like, 'Oh my God, let's just not do that.'"

Shelton said Stefani wanted to do the "repeat after me" lines, but Daly apparently continued to encourage her. Stefani was apparently still working on her vows "right up until the night before," according to Shelton.

But though it took quite a while for the No Doubt singer to finish her vows, Shelton loved what she'd written and got emotional as Stefani was saying them during the ceremony.

"It was incredible," the "God Gave Me You" crooner said. "I still haven't even seen a video of our wedding yet, so I can't remember all the things she said, but she had them written down and she had a hard time getting through them. I had a hard time trying get through what she said also."

Daly revealed he was also moved by Stefani's vows, telling his "Today" co-hosts that there was "not a dry eye in the church."

Shelton and Stefani tied the knot in a backyard chapel on his ranch in Oklahoma on July 3, cheered on by an intimate group of 40 of their close friends and family members, including Stefani's sons with ex Gavin Rossdale -- Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 7.

Following their nuptials, they skipped the traditional honeymoon and instead returned to their home in Los Angeles to tend to their respective careers.

"They're both very, very busy this year with work, and this was the only time they could fit in the wedding," an unnamed source close to the couple told People.

But Shelton and Stefani have been frequently spotted together since the wedding. They shared the stage Tuesday and performed their duet "Happy Anywhere" at night one of CMA's Summer Jam event at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, Tennessee.
