So much to see: There is a main home that is 2,150 square feet large with four bedrooms and two bathrooms on it. In addition to the lake, there are several ponds on the estate as well as a horse barn and basketball court. And Blake built a chapel (pictured)
They also like to sit by their small fire pit that has a view of the lake and go for long walks on the grounds, as seen in Instagram photos shared by both stars.
He also has planted a corn field that he tends to himself with a giant red tractor and Gwen has grown flowers in a small bed by the house.
Shelton had erected a chapel on the grounds just for the special day with his girlfriend of six years.
The chapel Blake and Gwen had tied the knot at was built by the country crooner himself with ‘input’ from the No Doubt songstress.

The chapel is located on Blake’s stunning property and could be seen in photos gorgeously festooned with white flowers beside a quaint party tent.
‘Blake built a chapel on the grounds of his Oklahoma ranch. He did it himself with help,’ a source told Us Weekly in December 2020.
‘It’s really a tribute to their love. They are going to get married in the chapel, most likely early next year.’
Also there were her three sons: Kingston, Zuma and Apollo.

The tent may have served as the site of the couple’s reception. Though small, it was beautifully decorated with a small number of tables and floral decorations.
Photos also showed more seating available outside, where chic umbrellas shaded various tables scattered nearby.
People could be seen milling about as they prepared to celebrate the new Mr. and Mrs.

Gwen’s parents Dennis Stefani and Patti Flynn were pictured heading to the wedding by luxury people carrier.
The couple filed for a marriage license in Oklahoma on Thursday, according to TMZ.
The move made it clear that the couple were likely to wed soon, as the license was only valid for 10 days.

While the nuptials took place over the Fourth Of July weekend, sources have told the site that the couple didn’t plan on going all out.
Instead of a big bash, it was reported they had an intimate affair for family and close friends, which was safer as coronavirus continues to spread and the more contagious delta variant makes its way across the country.
That doesn’t mean it wasn’t intricately planned, though. In May, Blake joked to USA Today that it would be a ‘pretty classless wedding’ if he planned it, which was why Gwen was taking charged.

‘I want her to do all of that stuff and handle it because it’s going to be great. She’s in the middle of planning the thing, and she’s always so mindful … of me.
‘She’s like, “Hey, I don’t want to just take this thing over.” I think she’s having a blast doing it. I mean, I know she’s having a blast doing it.’
He also has a home in Lake Texoma that is smaller and has a Hawaiian theme with Tiki style umbrellas and a curved swimming pool.
And the pair have a mansion in the hills of Hollywood that has a very modern feel.
Gwen and Blake got engaged in October 2020 after five years together. The two met in 2014 when Stefani became a judge on The Voice. Blake has been a judge on the NBC show since its inception in 2014.

Blake was married to fellow country singer Miranda Lambert, 37, for four years but the former couple separated in July 2015. Gwen wed Bush singer Gavin Rossdale, 55, in 2002 after seven years of dating. She filed for divorce in August 2015.
Gwen and Blake bonded in the wake of their divorces and the couple’s friendship eventually blossomed into love.
At the end of March, Blake shared some additional details about his nuptials during an appearance on Today. The God’s country singer hinted they’d be tying the knot this summer.
‘I’m afraid if she and I wait until next November, then I’m right back into The Voice cycle again, and I really want to be able to have plenty of time before and after, so hopefully this summer,’ Blake told Hoda Kotb.

‘I think we’re right here at the point with COVID, it looks like it may be OK, but don’t know, so that’s tentatively the plan,’ he said.
Hoda also asked Blake about the many stars who have offered to perform at his wedding, including Miley Cyrus and his former Voice costar Adam Levine.
Blake joked his wedding was beginning to resemble Coachella.
‘It’s starting to sound like a Coachella lineup here all of a sudden,’ he said. ‘I got all these superstars saying they’re gonna do it. I hope so, I don’t know. I’m not saying this because it’s the line. We really don’t know.

‘I’d love to be able to take everybody up on their offer and have this amazing concert wedding, but you know how it is. We’re just waiting every day just like everybody else to see what our summer’s gonna look like and then go from there.’
Gwen shares three boys with her ex-husband: 15-year-old Kingston, 12-year-old Zuma and seven-year-old Apollo.
Gwen and Blake went public with their relationship in late 2015. Back then, a source told People that Blake ‘wanted to take his time with marriage,’ though he was ‘absolutely committed to Gwen.’
Gwen announced her engagement to Blake in October 2020 on Instagram, where she posted a photo of herself flashing her brand new diamond ring whilst kissing her fiance.

‘yes please!’ she captioned the shot, along with a diamond ring and prayer hands emoji.
‘He’s just such a good guy,’ Gwen gushed of her fiance on Today back in January. ‘He’s one of the most generous human beings and down to earth.
‘It all sounds so generic, but it’s just so true. He’s so gifted and so unique and talented and he really is just my best friend,’ she gushed.
The No Doubt singer had nothing but positive thoughts for the future.
She added: ‘I feel just so excited that I have someone in my life that now I have a chance at like, happiness, you know what I mean? For a long time to come. It’s just a blessing, the whole thing and it is a miracle.’

Gwen dated her No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal from 1987 until 1994, when he ended their relationship. The singer went on to write one of the band’s biggest hits, Don’t Speak, about their breakup.
‘We were on tour for Tragic Kingdom for 28 months. We were going through the breakup, and in every interview we were talking about it so we were opening this wound on an hourly basis. It was so brutal but I don’t know how we made it through,’ Tony, 50, told The Guardian in 2012.
Gavin Rossdale, 1995 to 2015
The songstress met Bush frontman Gavin in 1995 and they dated for seven years before getting married in 2002.

In 2004 their marriage was rocked by the bombshell news that Gavin had fathered a daughter, Daisy Lowe, during a one-night stand with friend Pearl Lowe in the late 1980s.
Gwen and Gavin went on to have three children, sons Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, seven.
In August 2015 the couple divorced following rumors the British musician had cheated with the family’s nanny Mindy Mann.

Gwen later opened up about ‘torturing’ herself for months before she uncovered the alleged affair. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she said: ‘Everybody knows what happened next… I obviously know the date.
‘It was the beginning of hell. Like six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret.’
She added that she wanted to ‘tell everybody,’ but kept quiet about what was going on for the sake of her children.
Gwen went on: ‘What happened was praying. That’s my childhood, that’s how I was raised. And I think I strayed from that. But you know when it gets that bad, you just get desperate?’
BLAKE’S PAST LOVES:
The country singer married his high school sweetheart and road manager Kaynette Williams in a small ceremony in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 2003.
Blake was married to Kaynette Williams from 2003 to 2006
The marriage only lasted three years, with Kaynette accusing the singer of being ‘guilty of inappropriate marital conduct.’ in her 2006 divorce filing.
It’s rumored Blake cheated on Kaynette with fellow country singer Miranda Lambert who he went on to marry.
Blake talked about falling for Miranda when they performed on stage together in 2005.
In one interview he confessed: ‘I’ve never had that kind of experience with anybody. I was a married guy, you know? Looking back on that, I was falling in love with her, right there on stage.’
Miranda Lambert, 2005 to 2015
Blake went public with Miranda after his divorce was finalized in 2006.
Of feeling the same spark that Blake did when they performed a duet together in 2005, Miranda told Dateline in 2011: ‘I knew he was married. I had seen their wedding pictures in Country Weekly. I knew better, like, ‘this is off-limits’.
Blake married Miranda Lambert in 2011 after nearly six years of dating
Blake proposed to Miranda in May 2010 during a romantic stroll near Miranda’s Oklahoma ranch. After nearly six years together, the couple married in 2011 at a ranch in Boerne, Texas.
But it wasn’t to be, as four years later in 2015 they announced their decision to split.
‘This is not the future we envisioned,’ their reps told Us Weekly at the time. ‘And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.’
While the musicians never commented on the reason for their divorce, rumors have long swirled that cheating – on one or both of their parts – may have played a role.
Blake cryptically tweeted about ‘karma’ in 2018 after reports emerged alleging that Miranda had begun dating musician Evan Felker when he was still married.
