Here's why Adam Levine was NOT at Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's wedding
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got married on July 4 after a year of spending life as an engaged couple. Photographs from their dreamy nuptials have been released and they look like a million dollars in it. The couple got married in an intimate ceremony at Shelton's ranch in Tishomingo, Oklahoma which is their favorite place to spend quality time.
Shelton and Stefani were joined by their close friends and family who had assembled to celebrate their union. 'The Voice' alums had also extended invites to their friends from the show and the wedding turned out to be a mini-reunion of sorts. Carson Daly, the longtime host of 'The Voice' officiated Shelton and Stefani's marriage, according to a report. However, Adam Levine who appeared alongside Shelton on the show since its inception till he quit in 2019 was a no-show.

Why was Adam Levine absent from Blake Shelton's wedding?
The friendly banter between Shelton and Levine was something that fans of the show looked forward to each season. Shelton is the undisputed king of 'The Voice' with the most number of wins under his belt and his overall charming personality coupled with the unmissable Southern accent has worked wonders for his popularity. Apart from being very easy on the eyes, his dominance over an exasperated Levine after being chosen as the mentor by the contestant the latter was vying for to have on his own team always made for a fun watch. They were always fun to watch together and when Levine left the show two years ago, there were no two ways about the fact that 'The Voice' would never be the same.
As for why Levine was missing from Shelton's wedding celebrations, it was reported that the 'Girls Like You' hitmaker was in Miami and busy with a recording. However, Levine had taken the Independence Day weekend off and spent it with his wife Behati Prinsloo and their daughters. A quick scroll at Levine's following section on Instagram reveals he has unfollowed the country singer. There were no congratulatory messages for Shelton shared by Levine on social media. However, we hope all is well between them and they have spoken privately.
Gwen Stefani's Vera Wang dresses
Stefani turned to her trusted designer Vera Wang for both outfits she wore at the wedding. The first gown had the names of her three sons - Kingston James McGregor, Zuma Nesta Rock, and Apollo Bowie Flynn. Stefani's children were also a part of her reception dress - the three baby love birds on the outfit represented them. Wang and Stefani go way back and the singer is known to trust the wedding gown specialist with all of her important outfits. For instance, Wang had designed her custom white gown that she sported while accepting the Fashion Icon Award at People's Choice Awards in 2019.
"I love fashion, and I think one of the biggest blessings of the whole thing is just all the amazing, talented designers and people that have taught me all the things that I know," Stefani had said while accepting the award. "Because I used to hate fashion. I used to feel like, 'That's for the rich people, I'm just going to go to the thrift store and make my own thing,' and that's what I did my whole life and now here I am with this award," she added.
