Here comes the bride!
Jessica Simpson has decided to share her official wedding photo with the world -- and we couldn't be happier!
The singer-turned-designer and former NFL player Eric Johnson were wed over the weekend at that famed San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara -- and we can now feast our peepers on the blushing bride and groom on their big day!
The 33-year-old mom-of-two star wowed in a custom-made, strapless champagne and gold embroidered Carolina Herrera gown, along with her 12-carat diamond drop earrings by Neil Lane. Her tresses cascaded down her back in soft curls.
"Everybody thought I was going to wear a dress that completely showed off my new bod," Jessica said to People mag about her over-the-top frock. "But I can't help but want a princess dress! I'm a Southern girl at heart. I like everything big!"
The bride made walked down the aisle accompanied by 18-piece orchestra playing the sweeping score the 1998 film Great Expectations. People reports that the wedding guests gasped upon seeing the dazzling bride -- but most taken aback was the groom himself. "I saw my gorgeous wife coming towards me and she was crying," said Eric. "I think my heart was exploding a little bit."
For her second trip down the aisle, Jessica made the day a family affair. She had her two children Ace and Maxwell serve in key roles -- Ace was the ring bearer, while Maxwell was the flower girl. Mom Tina and sister Ashlee served as maids of honor -- and there were 12 bridesmaids. Johnson, who wore a John Varvatos suit, selected his father, Stephen, to be his best man and Ashlee's fiance, Evan Ross, was one of Eric's 11 groomsmen.
Sounds like an amazing day!
