Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson have finally said "I do" in a wedding that was twice postponed over the past few years. The couple made plans to walk down that proverbial aisle twice before but plans got changed because Jessica didn't want to be a pregnant bride. The couple are parents to daughter Maxwell and son Ace who both threw wrenches, although very welcome ones, into their parents' prior wedding plans.
This weekend was the third effort at tying the knot and as they say--the third time's a charm. It was for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson anyway. Their wedding took place without a hitch at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, California. Maxwell was their flower girl and Ace was the ring bearer for his mom and dad. Sister Ashlee Simpson's son, 5-year-old Bronx, escorted Maxwell down the aisle. Ashlee was one of her sister's bridesmaids.
Jess, along with sister Ashlee, worked on their suntans prior to the wedding, and attended a 4th of July bash the day before as well.
"We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment," the new Mr. and Mrs. Eric Johnson said in a statement to PEOPLE magazine on Saturday. "To say 'I do' in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives."
Jessica Simpson was stunning in a custom Carolina Herrera wedding gown as she and Eric Johnson recited their vows in front of 250 family members and friends. Her gown was champagne colored and not pink as some previous rumors had suggested.
An instrumental version of Chris Isaak's song 'Wicked Games' played at one point in the ceremony to cheers and applause from the wedding guests.
Eric Johnson proposed to Jessica Simpson back in 2010. In May of this year--when it finally seemed like the two would truly tie the knot--Jessica shared her excitement via Instagram.
A few days later she posted this photo, captioned, "I can't wait to marry you!!! Best 4yrs of my life!!! Thank you @tomeverhartstudio for being an amazing mentor to us all. Happy Birthday...again :)"
Jessica Simpson has finally married Eric Johnson. Family members, friends, and even Jess's fans are likely thrilled for the couple--and breathing a collective sigh of relief. The Weight Watchers spokesperson and thin and trim beauty no doubt made a beautiful bride. Photos should emerge soon so everyone can see how happy the new couple must be.
