Brooke Shields and Chris Henchy
Brooke Shields surprised her friends and family with a secret wedding to sitcom writer Chris Henchy in 2001. Friends and family of the couple arrived at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in California on the night of April 4, 2001 expecting an intimate dinner with the couple. Instead, they were whisked away to Catalina Island, which sits 26 miles off the California coast, for an ultra-secret, surprise wedding ceremony. "I think Brooke just wanted simplicity, and I think she achieved it," Marlene Blackwell, Shields’ personal stylist at the time, told People magazine. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
