Just Married: Kelly Clarkson Ties It Up With Brandon Blackstock

Miss Independent is now Mrs. Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly Clarkson has traded in the single life, saying "I do" to the Nashville-based talent manager, whom she started dating in late 2011.

The nuptials took place on Sunday, October 20, at Blackberry Farms in Walland, Tennessee.

The wedding was actually a scaled-down version of what the couple originally planned. Engaged since December 2012, the "Tie It Up" singer, 31 — whose canary diamond engagement ring is a stunner — originally planned a big event but after their save the date was leaked to the press, they hit the brakes. The couple scrapped their big to-do and planned a more intimate affair with only their nearest and dearest.

"In my life, everything is in the limelight," she explained during an interview with Live 95.5 radio. "Everything is for everybody else. Like, I always am that person. So why don't I just take this and be selfish and [have] it be our moment and it be our one thing that's not for everybody else."

She said that other than Blackstock and his two children from his first marriage, Seth and Savannah, only a small group would be in attendance, including the minister and her best friend, Ashley, "just because she does my hair and makeup as well," Clarkson explained.

Earlier this month, Clarkson told omg! that she was already thinking past the wedding to starting a family.

"I'm 31! My eggs aren't getting any younger. Brandon's such a great dad — he already has a 12 and a 6-year-old — and I love them," shared Clarkson, whose holiday album, "Wrapped in Red," drops on October 29. "We've been living together for over a year, I'm so used to having kids in the house now, that I'm like, 'I want a baby.' So I'm making him start right away."

And, yes, she said that her groom was fully on board with her baby plans.

"He wants to too, so we're good. He's down. He'll put in the time," she laughed.

Guess we know what they have planned for their honeymoon!
