It is not often that a couple of celebrities decide to go off and have a secret wedding since most of them choose to make it into a lavish affair, inviting tons of other celebrities, and making a spectacle of it.
However, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody did just that, and were able to keep their wedding a secret for weeks, until yesterday, when the big news was finally revealed. Meester and Brody are both former stars of two hit teen drama television shows.
Following the recent reveal of their marriage, an interview surfaced in which Leighton Meester said that as recently as 2012, she wasn't sure if she wanted to get married. As a couple, they continue to avoid the spotlight, and of course, the media has gone crazy with rumors as a result.
Those who watched the two on their respective former shows may be a little annoyed at the fact that the two are together, and certainly showed it over social media at the time of their engagement. Sometimes people can get such an attachment to certain characters that they want them to be together forever, and seeing that actor linked to someone else can still touch a nerve with some fans.
what the hell.. are Adam Brody and Leighton Meester ENGAGED?! BUT SETH AND SUMMER FOREVER??!!!

Breaks my heart a little that Adam Brody & Leighton Meester are engaged. I'm still rooting for him and Rachel Bilson. I miss Seth & Summer.

Adam Brody was a star on The O.C., while Leighton Meester became known through her role on Gossip Girl. In additon to her role as Blair Waldors on Gossip Girl, she has appeared in several television shows including a handful of episodes on big shows such as Entourage, 24, and House M.D.
Even before their secret wedding, the couple had worked hard to keep their relationship private. Before the announcement of their engagement, they had tried to keep quiet, but it was confirmed that they were dating when someone spotted them having dinner together, and Adam Brody was seen putting his arm around Leighton Meester.
Before beginning a romantic relationship together, the couple had met on the set of the 2011 film The Oranges, a film which they were the stars of. Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are both set to appear in the upcoming film Life Partners.
This is the first marriage for both Brody and Meester. Adam Brody had previously been in a relationship with Rachel Bilson, his co-star on The O.C., and the hearts of teens everywhere were crushed when they split in 2006, a year before the teen drama ended.
