Surprise! We're Married!

From secret ceremonies to whirlwind romances, see the couples (Alexis & Vincent! Piper & Stephen!) whose weddings took the world by surprise

KELLY & BRANDON

She fooled us! After first dishing on wedding plans and later saying she was going to elope, the singer married fiancé Blackstock in an under-the-radar Oct. 20 ceremony at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tenn. Clarkson did stay true to her word on her dress, though, choosing a long-sleeve, lacy number that fit her description of "a little rock 'n' roll. A little tattered. Nothing like a princess thing."
