Kelly Clarkson is officially Kelly Blackstock: The singer married her fiance Brandon Blackstock yesterday at the idyllic Blackberry Farm in Tennessee.

Clarkson tweeted the news this afternoon, along with a handful of wedding pictures, which show the pair embracing on a wooden bridge and against a sprawling farm backdrop. "I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock," she wrote. "We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!"

According to Us Weekly, Clarkson (who is working on her pilot's license) flew the pair in for the wedding. Due to the couple's intense work schedule (Blackstock works as a talent manager), their ceremony was planned as a small, intimate event.

"That is it," Clarkson told the magazine. "All we have time for! But we're happy with that." 

Blackstock, the stepson of country legend Reba McEntire, has two children (a 12-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son) from a previous marriage.

Clarkson, who is also working on a Christmas special, will be featured on the ABC fantasy series Once Upon a Time in an as-yet-undeteremined role. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, showrunner Ed Kitsis talked about their excitement upon hearing Clarkson's love of the show.

"We love Kelly Clarkson and she has been our biggest supporter since day one," he said. "We are so honored because at first. I heard that and I was like, 'That's not true!' and then someone sent us a tweet we got from her and I said, 'Oh, my God, really?'

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
