Kristen and Dax finally tied the knot on Oct. 17 after dating for six years! We’re so happy for the adorable couple.
Kristen Bell, 33, and Dax Shepard, 38, got married in Beverly Hills after being engaged for three years. The parents to daughter Lincoln, seven-months-old, famously waited to get married for political reasons. Read on for more details — you’ll never guess where they had their wedding!
Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Married In Beverly Hills
Kristen and Dax made it official on Oct. 17 at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office.
The courthouse ceremony was simple, with just a photographer present, TMZ reported.
The plan was to just get a marriage license, but when an employee suggested that the Parenthood and House of Lies stars could get married on the spot, they decided to wed then and there.
How sweet and spontaneous! We love the no-frills style approach to Kristen and Dax’s nuptials — especially since they waited for a special reason to tie the knot!
Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Wouldn’t Wed Until Gay Marriage Legalized
The couple have been together since 2007 and have a daughter, Lincoln Bell Shepard, who was born in March 2013.
Kristen and Dax were always upfront with the fact that they would not wed until gay marriage was legalized. On June 26, when the Supreme Court ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, Kristen re-proposed to her fiance in a totally Kristen Bell way.
