More details are emerging about Kelly Clarkson's upcoming wedding to fiance Brandon Blackstock, a talent manager who works with Blake Shelton . After confirming that the nuptials will take place in October after her tour with Maroon 5 wraps up, Kelly has revealed a member of her wedding party on Twitter.
"Introducing my official maid of honor Miss Ashley Donovan ladies and gentlemen," Kelly tweeted , along with a photo of herself and Ashley. According to US Weekly , Ashley and Kelly grew up together in Burleson, Texas, and worked together as ticket-takers at the local movie theater. They also used to live together in Los Angeles. Back in 2005 -- after Kelly was already a star mind, you -- Ashley told Texas Monthly that they spent all their free time just hanging around their apartment, staying up late and watching Friends reruns.
A source tells US Weekly that Kelly's wedding will be down-to-earth and unpretentious, just like her. "They are doing a smaller, homey version of Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's wedding at home in Nashville," claims the source. "Kelly wants it to be small but really personal and fun. [She's] planning most of it herself and having a blast doing it."
Blake's 2011 wedding to fellow country star Miranda was definitely down-home: he wore jeans, she wore cowboy boots, and they all ate venison that Miranda shot herself. Blake is set to perform Kelly's wedding ceremony.
