"We have to fit our romantic life into our schedule," Clarkson exclusively told Us about the upcoming nuptials at the Green Mountain Coffee "Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Choose fair Trade" campaign concert in NYC on Oct. 10. "It'll be both a wedding and an elopement. I like it! We are just doing a small, little wedding -- me and Brandon and the kids. That is it. All we have time for! But we're happy with that." She continued: "We just wanted to make it about us."
Clarkson is set to film a Christmas special at the end of the month, and wanted to wed before then. "We are trying to squeeze in the wedding before that. Like I said, just running off and doing it," she explained to Us.
The newlyweds first revealed they were engaged in December 2012. "I'm engaged!" the Season 1 "American Idol" winner wrote on Twitter. "I wanted y'all to know! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever." Alongside the comment, the rocker also showed off her stunning yellow canary Johnathon Arndt diamond ring.
