Celebrity Courthouse Weddings: No Red Carpet Here! (PHOTOS)

With all the pomp and circumstance that comes with being a celebrity, we're not surprised that these stars wanted their wedding days to be no big deal. As one of our favorite people Kristen Bell once told E! News of her then-upcoming marriage to Dax Shepard, "I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper." (Those two, by the way, totally had a courthouse wedding.)

Of course, privacy isn't the only reason celebs get hitched without a big ceremony. Sometimes they're just getting it out of the way before a huge wedding bash, like Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. Other times, we're not really sure what the deal is — Keira Knightley got all dressed up for her wedding in the South of France, which turned out to be at a local town hall. Hey, if you're already in France, right?

Those aren't the only couples to profess their love in a low-key way. As a counterpart to our list of couples that got hitched on the hush-hush, read on for 9 couples that had courthouse weddings!
