Singer Kelly Clarkson got married for the first time over the weekend, to a handsome divorcee named Brandon Blackstock. Kelly shared some beautiful photos of her wedding, which was a very small, intimate affair in Tennessee that she called an elopement. The couple married in Tennessee under a covered bridge, with just a few people in attendance including Blackstock’s children from his previous marriage. (Kelly has called Brandon’s 12 year-old daughter and 6 year-old son her kids, essentially, but that’s another story. I do wonder if their mother is still in their lives, as that would make a difference.)
Well now we now just how small Kelly’s wedding was, because she’s posted a brief wedding video. Everything looks so romantic and intimate, and you can tell tat she wasn’t kidding about eloping. There was hardly anyone there, which makes it all the more special that she’s sharing her wedding video with us. Kelly explained before the wedding that her work schedule and the level of stress involved made it hard to schedule a big wedding. Kelly and Brandon are planning on having a party later so friends and family can share in their happy moment.
People Magazine has the detail that the wedding was held at a place called Blackberry Farm. I checked out their website and they have entire houses with several bedrooms that guests can rent for complete privacy. It all looks so romantic, especially the fall country setting.
I hope this is the start of a lifetime of happiness for Kelly and Brandon. She seems to have waited until she found the right one, and now she’s got a whole little family.
I wonder if Kelly is changing her name professionally to “Blackstock.” The video refers to “Brandon and Kelly Blackstock,” but I’m assuming she’ll still go by “Clarkson” as she has a whole brand built up around it.
