Jessica Simpson is a Newlywed Again
In a statement released to People, the newlyweds opened up about the nuptials saying, “We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment. To say ‘I do’ in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives.”
We’re hearing that Jessica wore a custom Carolina Herrera gown during the ceremony. The dress choice makes sense, as Jessica wowed in Carolina earlier this year at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (picutred above).
Jessica and Eric’s two children played a major part in the wedding, with baby Ace Knute acting as the ring bearer and Maxwell Drew, 2, being the flower girl. Also on hand for the ceremony were Jessica’s younger sister Ashlee Simpson, her fiancé Evan Ross, Jessica Alba and Topher Grace, CaCee Cobb and Donald Faison.
The celebrations actually started earlier last week, with a rehearsal dinner on Thursday evening and a big Southern-inspired BBQ buffet on the 4th of July for all of their wedding guests.
Simpson, 33, and the former NFL pro, 34, were first engaged way back in November 2010, five months after they were first connected. The wedding was obviously put on hold, however, thanks to the nearly back-to-back births of their children.
This is the second marriage for both. Jessica was previously married to Nick Lachey, while Eric was legally married to, but separated from, wife of five years Keri Johnson when he met Simpson.
Best wishes you two! And make sure to keep those adorable family Instagram posts coming!
