Blake Shelton Officiates Country Singer Ashley Monroe’s Wedding
The super funny singer officiated the nuptials of Ashley Monroe, the country singer who pulls double duty as a member of the Pistol Annies, which features Shelton’s wife, Miranda Lambert. Monroe married Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks.
Lambert served as the maid of honor and the wedding planner, too! “They’re my dearest friends,” Monroe said of couple’s involvement. “And we wanted someone with personality to marry us!”
Monroe, 27, and Danks married on Thursday evening (Oct. 24) in Tennessee.
The couple met through a mutual friend after a 2011 Chicago show. “I married my best friend,” the bride gushed about her groom. “He has such a good heart.”
Shelton presided over the union at the very busy Blackberry Farm, the same place Kelly Clarkson swapped vows with Brandon Blackstock last weekend. Shelton was going to officiate that wedding, too, but Clarkson and Blackstock scaled it down in favor of a more private elopement.
