Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are married

Country singers Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were married Saturday night on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country, after a year of engagement that capped about five years of dating.

"I wanted to be married to Miranda the day I proposed," Shelton, 34, told Us magazine. "Finally, it's official!"

"I'm married to my best friend!" Lambert told the mag after the ceremony. "Looking forward to a lifetime of laughter." The bride reportedly wore her mother's wedding dress.

More than 500 guests -- among them Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley, the Bellamy Brothers, Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and Shelton's fellow "The Voice" judge Cee Lo Green, according to CMT -- gathered at the Don Strange Ranch a ways outside San Antonio.

"So I went to Miranda and Blake Shelton's wedding last night and it was the greatest wedding/reception I've ever been to!," singer Kelly Clarkson wrote Sunday on Facebook. "I feel as though they should renew their vows every year and throw a party as well because everything about it was awesome! Cutest couple ever!"
