Back in August, Clarkson, 31, said she and Blackstock had called off their original wedding plans, opting instead for something more low-key.

“Our whole life is a celebration,” she told People at the time. “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.'”

The couple got engaged in December after dating for almost a year.
