Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are celebrating their second anniversary, marking another milestone in their sweet love story. 

The couple celebrated the occasion by sharing sweet messages for each other on social media. 

Shelton posted a photo of the couple from their wedding day and wrote, “Happy anniversary @gwenstefani!!!! Every day has been the best day since I met you.”

After six years together, Shelton and Stefani exchanged vows during an intimate ceremony in front of their closest family and friends on July 3, 2021. The elegant ceremony took place on Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch and was officiated by the couple’s longtime friend and The Voice cohort, Carson Daly. 

The couple’s big day included several special touches, making for a memorable and very personal wedding. 

Stefani sported two Vera Wang gowns throughout the day, both of which paid tribute to Stefani’s three sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo. 

They celebrated their nuptials with a five-tier wedding cake that was made to look like Stefani’s parents’ wedding cake. 

The superstars shared their first dance with Shelton’s beloved dog, Betty, by their side.

Shelton, 47, has been laying a bit low since he bid farewell to NBC’s The Voice after an incredible 23-season run. During his final episode, which aired on May 23, Stefani appeared via video message to give Shelton a proper send-off. 

“Who would have thought that this Orange County girl and this country guy from Oklahoma would find each other on the set of The Voice,” she shared.

“When I first came on the show, our lives were having this parallel destruction happening,” she added, referring to their separate divorces that were taking place at the time. “and then next thing you know, Blake and I start becoming besties, and falling in love.”

The emotional tribute ended with Stefani reflecting on finding her “soulmate” on the show and admitting, “it’s hard for me to even talk about it without getting super emotional.” 

With one finale note, she proudly stated, “The Voice is gonna go on, but Blake’s legacy will be there forever.”

Just days before, Stefani and her sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, were on hand to support Shelton when he received the 2,755th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

When accepting the high honor, the “God’s Country” singer admitted, “I kind of stopped checking things off my list of accomplishments, great accomplishments in my life when I married Gwen and so this is just icing on the cake. But I love you so much and that’s the greatest thing that’s happened along this journey.” 

The couple has gone on to release four duets together throughout their relationship thus far.
