The duo reportedly went down to the county clerk’s office, simply to obtain a marriage license, but decided to take up a court employee’s offer to marry them on the spot! TMZ reports that a photographer was present, and that the Veronica Mars star shed tears while saying “I Do.”
The no-frills ceremony isn’t quite shocking, and as Kristen previously told Star, it was their plan all along. “We aren’t having a wedding,” she admitted. “We could literally go to the court tomorrow and just sign the papers.”
Kristen and Dax announced their engagement in early 2010, but made a clear statement that they would not wed until same-sex marriage was legal. When the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act this summer, the actress re-proposed to her fiance on Twitter.
The actors are parents to one daughter, 7-month-old Lincoln.
