Famous Couples Who Ditched Big Weddings And Eloped
In this day and age, it’s pretty easy to keep up with celebrities’ lives, much to their dismay. There are some sacred moments that celebrities get to keep all to themselves though, and that includes getting married. These stars have managed to elope without anyone finding out! Eventually, they were outed by the media. Some of the couples came clean themselves. This usually comes as a big surprise to fans, especially when they didn’t know they were even dating someone, in Amy Schumer’s case!

Rapper Offset proposed to Cardi B during a concert in Philadelphia back in October 2017, but little did everyone know, the pair were already secretly married. People were tipped off when Offset thanked his “wife” at the BET Awards in June 2018.
After the slip, TMZ posted the couple’s marriage certificate from September 2017 before Offset publicly got down on one knee. After the leak, Cardi took to Twitter to address the issue saying that this was something she wanted to keep private. “Our relationship was so new, breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do, but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other,” Cardi wrote.

Schumer and Fisher eloped in a private Malibu ceremony in front of a small crowd that included two Jennifers (Aniston and Lawrence), Jake Gyllenhaal, Larry David, and David Spade.

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen became engaged in 2004 after two years of dating, but a wedding was not yet in sight for the actors. But suddenly in 2010, Fisher apparently emailed friends saying, “We did it – we’re married! …I thought of you as everything was happening, but Sacha and I wanted no fuss – just us!”
The wedding took place at an intimate ceremony in Paris and by then, the couple already shared a three-year-old daughter, Olive. Fisher converted to Judaism in order to mary Cohen, saying at one point, “We have a future together and religion comes second to love as far as we are concerned.”

Comedians Chelsea Peretti and Jordan Peele eloped at Big Sur back in April 2016 with only their dog as their witness. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress and Get Out director announced their engagement via Twitter in November 2015 but didn’t tell anyone about the nuptials.
Perretti dished on Conan that they, “were married by a woman named Soaring, like soaring about the clouds, and our dog was there, and that was it. No guests.” When host Conan O’Brien asked if the family was hurt they were not invited, Peretti said, “I don’t even think they cared… We made these whole big photo books for everyone afterward, and… they left them at our house.”
This talk show host may have eloped to Vegas, but their marriage has lasted for over 20 years.

That ’70s Show fans were thrilled when Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher became a real-life couple in 2012. Kutcher and Kunis secretly married during Fourth of July weekend in 2015 at the Secret Garden at Parrish Ranch in Oak Glen, California.
The wedding party was reportedly very “low-key” with only close family and friends in attendance. In fact, people didn’t know that Kunis and Kutcher were officially tying the knot until after the fact. However, sources say that the couple was already legally married before the wedding happened, which wouldn’t be wrong to assume since they welcomed daughter Wyatt in 2014.

Let’s go to Vegas tomorrow and get married.’ …I said yes.”
