“I’m officially Mrs. Blackstock,” Clarkson, 31, tweeted Monday, Oct. 12 with two gorgeous photos from the wedding. “We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!”

The blushing bride wore a Temperly London wedding gown for her special day. Clarkson is currently getting her pilot’s license; she actually flew the couple in for the ceremony and talent manager Blackstock, 36, was going to fly them back out, a source told Us Weekly.

“We have to fit our romantic life into our schedule,” Clarkson exclusively told Us about the upcoming nuptials at the Green Mountain Coffee “Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Choose fair Trade” campaign concert in NYC on Oct. 10. “It’ll be both a wedding and an elopement. I like it! We are just doing a small, little wedding — me and Brandon and the kids. That is it. All we have time for! But we’re happy with that.” She continued: “We just wanted to make it about us.”

Clarkson is set to film a Christmas special at the end of the month, and wanted to wed before then. “We are trying to squeeze in the wedding before that. Like I said, just running off and doing it,” she explained to Us.

The newlyweds first revealed they were engaged in December 2012. “I’m engaged!” the Season 1 American Idol winner wrote via Twitter. “I wanted y’all to know! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.” Alongside the comment, the rocker also showed off her stunning yellow canary Johnathon Arndt diamond ring.

Clarkson’s small ceremony is no surprise, as the “Stronger” singer revealed in August that the couple were thinking of eloping in lieu of an extravagant wedding. At the time, the decision to marry quick led to some speculation that she was pregnant. “FYI…Brandon & I are getting married & no I am not pregnant,” the Grammy winner replied back via Twitter.

She added: “We are eloping for one reason only. We both want an intimate ceremony.”

This is the first marriage for Clarkson. Blackstock, who is the stepson of country singer Reba McEntire, has two children from a previous marriage — daughter Savannah, 12, and son Seth, 6. The couple and his two children already live under the same roof, but the “People Like Us” singer is hoping to expand. She laughed, “I want two kids. Two more, that is. I’ve already got two!”
