(Newser) – Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard quietly got married recently, but rather than throw a typical, huge wedding, they headed to City Hall and let a justice of the peace do the honors. Turns out it's not entirely uncommon among the stars. The Frisky rounds up nine more celebrity couples who did the same. A sampling:

  • Jessica Alba and Cash Warren wed at the Beverly Hills courthouse in 2008; Alba was pregnant and wore her hair in a simple ponytail.
  • Agyness Deyn married Giovanni Ribisi at the Los Angeles County Registrar—and very few people even knew they were together.

  • Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio got hitched at San Francisco's city hall in 1954.
  • Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso got married at New York City's city hall in 2005, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg was there.
