Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard finally tied the knot earlier this month, but it wasn’t the grand affair you might have come to expect from Hollywood stars. In fact, they exchanged vows at the Beverly Hills courthouse, which doesn’t sound all that romantic or special (but sounds AWESOME because I would do the same – fuck a big ceremony! What a waste of money!)
Dax Shepard was on Jimmy Kimmel’s show on Tuesday night, where he admitted that they may have had the “world’s worst wedding” – at least as far as outsiders are concerned. It was perfect for them, however.
“So we went to the Beverly Hills Court House and all in, with fuel to get there, $142 out the door. Friends of ours came to the courthouse, and it was just Kristen and I at this lonely Court House, so they brought us this cake afterwards.
“‘World’s Worst Wedding.’ How many people can say they threw the ‘World’s Worst Wedding’?”
I dunno, I think it’s kind of romantic. After all, what’s the purpose of some massive expensive wedding, other than to show off how much money you have and to get as much attention on yourselves as possible? If you love someone, it doesn’t matter how many people are there or if you hired a private chef to create regional tapas with all-organic ingredients and hired out the most expensive lodge in Timbuktu. Seriously, it’s ONE DAY that people go into serious debt over. It’s baffling. I’m sure some of you may have had bigger weddings, so please let me in on this! I’m not being flippant, I’m legitimately curious as to the inspiration behind these massive days.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard got quietly and spontaneously married at the Beverly Hills courthouse. Apparently they weren’t planning to wed yesterday (October 17) — they just wanted to get their marriage license — but somehow, it happened. From TMZ:
The couple had a no-frills ceremony at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office. We’re told there was a photographer present, and Kristen was crying.
According to eye witnesses, Kristen and Dax went to the clerk office just to get their marriage license — but when a court employee offered to marry them on the spot, they agreed … and conducted the ceremony in a nearby courtroom.
Kristen Bell is adorable in every way, so I bet her daughter with Dax Shepard, little Lincoln Bell, is pretty cute, too. Kristen was on The Ellen Show last week to talk about… I dunno, sloths? Life? Motherhood? and said that having a baby has kind of been better than she even expected, which is cute.
There’s not much to say on this one, but have a look at her interview below:
