Jessica Simpson Marries Longtime Fiancé Eric JohnsonBy: Val Powell - July 7, 2014
Over the weekend, Jessica Simpson married longtime fiancé Eric Johnson at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. The couple was engaged in 2010.
Simpson, 33, donned a beautiful custom-made Carolina Herrera wedding gown. Instead of going for the traditional white dress, Simpson’s champagne colored dress was embroidered in gold. “The whole dress is embroidered in gold and feels very regal,” Herrera said.
Simpson also wore a cathedral length veil as well as jewelry by Neil Lane and shoes by Brian Atwood. A blue ribbon was also added to her gown — a bride always needs something blue on her wedding day.
In May, Simpson turned to her Instagram account to show her excitement about her wedding. “I can’t wait to marry you!!! Best 4yrs of my life!!!” she wrote.
More than 250 guests attended the ceremony including Simpson’s sister Ashlee, and her parents Joe and Tina. Simpson and Johnson’s one-year-old son was the ring bearer, and their two-year-old daughter was the flower girl, who was escorted by Ashlee’s son Bronx.
In an interview on Saturday, the newlyweds told People Magazine that they are happy to have finally made their commitment to each other official. “To say ‘I do’ in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives,” the couple said.
Simpson has certainly done well in her showbiz career. She started out as a pop star and even starred in her own reality television show with ex-husband Nick Lachey. She also serves as the spokesperson for Weight Watchers. Her husband Eric Johnson, is a former NFL player for the San Francisco 49ers.
Although Simpson has been concentrating on her family for the past few years, she said that she is ready to go back to singing. She is even building a music studio in her home. “I want to see what comes out. It’s time for me to find that out, and I can’t wait for my kids to experience that with me. Even Eric. He’s never seen me perform on stage,” she said.
