Adam Brody and Leighton Meester have kept most of their relationship secret, so it’s not shocking they were able to keep their wedding secret as well.

This time, the couple got away with a marriage while keeping it out of the headlines, at least for a few days. The rumors started when Brody was spotted at LAX over the weekend and stopped to take a photo with a fan. The photo showed a very noticeable addition to Brody’s wardrobe — a gold band on his ring finger. While girls can usually explain rings, it seems to be much more out of character for a man, and it would fit the couple’s secretive relationship so far.
E! News confirmed that the couple was married over the Valentine’s Day weekend at a resort in Mexico. Meester also celebrated her bachelorette party in Hollywood just weeks before the wedding.
Brody and Meester worked together on the 2011 film The Oranges, but it wasn’t rumored until early in 2013 that they were actually an item. They were spotted in Venice sharing some PDA, according to People. But even with the rumors, they didn’t confirm a relationship until announcing their engagement in November.
Meester split from her longtime boyfriend Sebastian Stan in 2010, saying, “I was really sad when it ended, but that’s what taught me a lot about myself and love and life — and that’s good.” Brody was in a high-profile relationship with O.C. cast mate Rachel Bilson until 2006. That relationship may be what taught him about keeping his private life out of the news.
Even with a wedding to plan, the couple has been as busy as ever. Meester has been in Chicago for the last few months, along with James Franco, getting ready for her role in Of Mice and Men on Broadway. Brody currently has three films in the works, all set to come out in 2014.
