It's no secret that celebrities have the ultimate budget for an extravagant wedding. While some of them do choose to celebrate with an all-out bash, these five high-profile couples decided that a low-profile trip to the courthouse was more than enough to make it official (except Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, who had both!).

Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard

Married: October 17, 2013

Where: Beverly Hills County Clerk's Office

Bell and Shepard were so relaxed about getting hitched that they filled out their paperwork online, but showed up to the courthouse without an officiant. Luckily, someone at the courthouse who was ordained spoke up and offered to marry the stars on the spot.

Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa

Married: September 14, 2013

Where: New York City Courthouse

Since this bombshell couple actually tied the knot in a lavish wedding in Italy (Teigen wore three dresses!), they had to make it official in the US first. A low-key NYC courthouse ceremony did just the trick.

Luciana Barroso & Matt Damon
