Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Are Finally Married

The celebrity couple wed at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office where they got their marriage license.

They were supposedly there just to get a marriage license but as it turned out, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard's Thursday, October 17 visit to the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office became the setting for a simple wedding ceremony for the longtime couple. The ceremony had been suggested by a court employee who later wed the pair at the nearby courtroom after they accepted the offer to be married right there and then.

Bell reportedly wept tears of joy while a photographer captured the spontaneous nuptials, something that the 33-year-old actress had apparently wanted all along. "I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper," said the "House of Lies" star, suggesting her desire for a courthouse wedding.

Bell and Shepard got engaged back in 2010 but vowed to put off their wedding until gay marriage is legalized in California. This finally happened back in June when the U.S. Supreme Court declared the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as "unconstitutional" and overturned California's Proposition 8 constitutional amendment.

To celebrate the state's lifting of the ban on gay marriage, Bell wrote her own proposal to her fiance, tweeting, "@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove," to which Shepard replied with a resounding, "F**k Yes!!!!!!!!!!!...Now let's bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to Life!!!!" Another cause to celebrate was the birth of their first child, baby daughter Lincoln, earlier this year in March.
