Miranda wore her mother’s dress for the ceremony. “My parents have been married for 33 years, so this dress is already a good-luck charm,” she told Us Weekly. Under the dress, Miranda wore custom-made Casadei cowboy boots. She changed into a shorter dress for the reception. Her bridesmaids wore Old Gringo boots and custom-made gowns by Priscilla of Boston’s Mark Brower.

As the wedding party took their places, Blake sang a song he’d written for the wedding called “Let’s Grow Old Together.” Bridesmaid and fellow Pistol Annie member Ashley Monroe sang “Makin’ Plans,” a song Miranda wrote for Blake that appears on her Revolution album. “I was thinking about not crying, then when I got close, I didn’t think of anyone else,” Miranda told Us Weekly. “It was just me and Blake.”

Today the lovebirds tweeted to each other. “Hey @mirandalambert…. Happy Anniversary pretty baby,” posted Blake.

“Thanks for a great 2…well 8 years!” replied Miranda, in reference to the 6 years they’d dated before marrying.
