What do Jennifer Aniston, Mila Kunis, Cameron Diaz, and Beyoncé; all have in common? Aside from sounding like a dream celebrity bridal party, they all pulled off hush-hush weddings that left everyone's heads spinning! As stars know all too well, it's hard to keep a secret in Hollywood. With paparazzi, blabbermouth friends, and the always-speculative press, it's rare to completely pull the wool over everyone's eyes. And yet, somehow, people like Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds managed to get hitched without anyone even knowing they were engaged to begin with.
With Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's absolute shocker of a wedding on August 5, we decided to look back on other memorable nuptials that took us completely off-guard. Some, like Jen and Justin's, were a surprise even to the guests. Others, like Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik's, were so undercover that it took months for the news of their marriage to even surface. What's amazing is that many of these under-the-radar affairs were total blowout celebrations, with hundreds of guests that managed to stay mum about the whole thing — and barely have a photo to show for it.
When all eyes are on you, it's only natural to want a wedding that keeps you completely out of the spotlight. Here, we focus on the intimate parties and secret ceremonies that show how even the biggest celebrities still know how to pull a fast one on us. From Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, all of these megawatt stars planned weddings that belie their big-time fame.
