    Kelly Clarkson waited a lifetime for a moment like this--and it was worth the wait.

    The Grammy winner married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in a small ceremony in Tennessee over the weekend, E! News has confirmed. Clarkson broke the news via Twitter on Monday, Oct. 21, writing, "I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock. We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!"

    The first-ever "American Idol" winner shared two pictures from the ceremony with fans.

    Only a small group of friends and family were in attendance, including Blackstock's two kids from his first marriage.

    The bride had previously revealed that her dress was by Temperley London.

    Clarkson dished to E! News earlier this month about having planned a much bigger to-do for their I-dos, but ultimately deciding that they wanted a smaller affair once she was on a break from touring.

    "We're just gonna go off with the kids and go get married and it's just gonna be literally, seriously small," she said.

    Clarkson and Blackstock showed up in person in Sumner County on Tuesday to get a marriage license. The document was only good for 30 days from point of issue, so their big day was imminent.

    The newlyweds met through the groom's dad, Narvel Blackstock, who has been Clarkson's manager for years and is married to her onetime touring partner, Reba McEntire.

    Blackstock popped the question last December after about a year of dating, offering up an engagement ring that boasted a huge yellow canary diamond surrounded with white diamonds, which he helped design with jeweler Johnathon Arndt.
