Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard Go Get Marriage License. End Up Getting Married.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard married in a low-key ceremony.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard arrived at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office last week to apply for a marriage license - though it all happened a little too quickly. In fact, when a court employee offered to marry them on the spot, they agreed, and the rest - as they say - is history.
In an extremely no-frills ceremony at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office, Kristen and Dax were married with only a photographer present - apart from the officials. According to eyewitnesses who spoke with TMZ.com, Bell was weepy in the courtroom.
The low-profile marriage is hardly a surprise given Kristen has talked about wanting a courthouse marriage in the past. "I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper," he said.
Bell joked that her laziness was delaying wedding plans. "I have to unfortunately report that we just haven't gotten it together on a Saturday to get to the court house," she told E! News. "But we have every intention to. We have every intention to. We wanna sign those papers!"
Kristin famously re-proposed to Dax after the U.S Supreme Court struck down the gay marriage band in June.
The When in Rome co-stars are parents to 4-month-old daughter Lincoln. Bell confirmed her marriage via Twitter the day after the ceremony, telling followers, "Wife coffee tastes way better than regular coffee in the morning."
Bell recently completed shooting the crowd-funded Veronica Mars movie adaptation. It is set for release in 2014.
