There will be no fall wedding for Kelly Clarkson and fiancee Brandon Blackstock as the couple decided to elope to have an intimate wedding ceremony and hinted to fans that planning a big wedding was exhausting.
The couple's eloped before the big day.
Due to scheduling conflicts the "Stronger" singer said she was over with the big wedding plans.
The 31 year-old told People, "We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, 'So, we change our minds and we want to elope, we just got so overwhelmed by it - all the decisions."
Clarkson added, "We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking.Then honestly the planning - I have a Christmas record coming out. I'm doing a bunch of stuff with State Farm right now."
The couple has been planning this October wedding since they got engaged in December and it was on their late stages of planning when they decided to break the news that the wedding is off. But they managed to sent out an engagement photo saying, "Thank you so much for understanding, but it's just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister."
"Honestly, the planning ... we have two kids who just started school. We're going to all these football games and soccer games and volleyball games and [Brandon]'s got one of the biggest artists (Blake Shelton) in country music. He's flying everywhere", Kelly continues.
Brandon has two kids from his previous marriage and is the son of Kelly's talent manager Narvel Blackstock who also manages Blake Shelton. The country superstar was set to officiate the couple's nuptial, that was the original plan before they decided to elope.
"Our whole life is a celebration," Kelly says. "That's what we kept laughing about. We don't need another day where we throw a big party. Our lives are so in the spotlight all the time. Everything is such a spectacle, we were like, 'We would rather have an intimate moment that's special.'"
But definitely there will be some celebration when they wrap up the construction of their house. People who are invited to the wedding will be there celebrating for the newly weds.
