BLAKE & MIRANDA

Country stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert made their love official with an appropriately Texas-sized wedding – with 560 guests, a karaoke sing-along and the couple's dogs! – when the down-home duo tied the knot on May 14 at the Don Strange Ranch in Hill Country. "With that first kiss and the pronouncement, they just lit up and everybody knew it was right," Shelton's close pal, singer Neal McCoy told PEOPLE.
