We expect celebrities to tie the knot with expensive, over-the-top affairs, so when they don't, we can't help but sit up and take notice.
As part of our Take Back Your Wedding initiative, a project we recently launched on Huffington Post Weddings to encourage couples to reclaim their vision for their nuptials, we're paying homage to the high-profile pairs who opted do it their way on their Big Days.
