2004 – Pop singer Britney Spears marries her fiance, dancer Kevin Federline, in a surprise ceremony held at a private home in the Studio City area with 20 to 30 people attending. The ceremony lasts about 5 minutes. It is Spears’ second marriage in nine months.
Pop star Britney Spears did it again and got married for the second time this year — this time to dancer Kevin Federline in a low-key ceremony Saturday at a private home in Studio City, California, a record-label executive confirmed on Sunday.
“Yes, I can tell you the happy couple got married yesterday,” David Frostman of Jive Records, a British spokesman for Spears, told Reuters in London. Frostman declined to provide further details.
Spears, 22, and Federline, 26, surprised their parents with the unexpected ceremony which took place about 7:30 pm at the home of a tailor who had custom-made the tuxedos for the groom and other men in the wedding, according to a report on the Web site of Star magazine (www.starmagazine.com).
A publicist for the syndicated entertainment television show “Access Hollywood,” which also carried a report of the nuptials on its Web site (www.accesshollywood.com), said that show organizers were with Spears’ mother, Lynn, and her younger sister, Jamie Lynn on Saturday until 5 pm as they got ready for what they believed to be an “engagement dinner.”
“Jamie Lynn died her hair back to its original color of brown and told the show that she couldn’t wait to surprise her sister with the new look at the “dinner,” the report on the Access Hollywood Web site stated.

Star reported that only 20 immediate family members attended the ceremony. Britney reportedly wore a strapless white dress designed by Monique L’Huillier, with a long veil and tiara, and she carried a bouquet of pink and white roses, the tabloid said. Five bridesmaids and a maid of honor all reportedly wore burgundy and carried red roses.
The couple exchanged rings and danced to Journey’s “City by the Bay,” the tabloid reported. Guests reportedly dined on chicken fingers, crab cakes, ribs, Waldorf salad.
US-based publicists for the couple were not immediately available to comment on Sunday.
On January 2 of this year Spears married high school sweetheart Jason Alexander in an impromptu ceremony in Las Vegas. But the ill-fated marriage only lasted three days and was annulled on January 5.
Spears and Federline announced their engagement in June. Federline has two children with former girlfriend actress Shar Jackson.
