Wedding days are typically joyous, public affairs, filled with friends, family and attention. But when you’re a celebrity, they can take on the air of a black-ops mission.

Also under deep, deep cover: Ryan Reynolds locked down his status as Luckiest Bastard Ever when he married Scarlett Johansson in a sneaky ceremony in a remote part of Canada — the event was kept so quiet, that’s all we know about it! Even though Ellen Degeneres and Portia DiRossi televised their bliss, no one knew about it until the day it aired on her show, which is one way to get an exclusive. Another set of nuptials that went down with a minimum of public attention? Jewel and boyfriend of ten years Ty Murray, who married in the Bahamas this summer.
