Parenthood star Dex Shepard and longtime girlfriend Kristen Bell are married. The couple tied the knot in a no-thrills ceremony at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office.
According to snoops a photographer was present to capture the couples special moment. The insider says Bell was crying as they made their vows.
Kristen and Dax originally headed to the clerk’s office just to receive their marriage license. Once inside a court employee offered to marry the couple and they agreed. Dax and Kristen tied the knot in a nearby courtroom.
In the past Kristen Bell said she wanted a courthouse marriage, an event she called “private.” According to Bell, “I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper.”
You may recall that Kristen Bell proposed to Dax Shepard via Twitter. His proposal came just as the U.S. Supreme Court struck down gay marriage. The couples’ tweets gained a lot of attention.

We couldn’t tell at the time if Dax and Kristen were serious about getting married but now we have our answer.
Are you surprised that the longtime couple chose to forgo the big Hollywood weddings we are accustomed to seeing these days?
