For those of you who were born in the 80’s and 90’s, when you hear the name Jessica Simpson you automatically swoon at her marriage to 98 Degrees heartthrob, Nick Lachey. However, move over Nick, as it appears Jessica has said ‘I do’ to long term boyfriend Eric Johnson on the 5th of July, putting an end to their four-year engagement. We have all the inside scoop from her wedding dress to the flowers and decor.
The couple said ‘I Do’ at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. The star studded duo visited this Ranch the day they got engaged, which is the reason why they chose to hold the wedding here. The marquee was decorated with chandeliers and flowers is estimated to have cost a whooping £90,000. It is said that the ‘deconstructed, vintage’ look below was inspired by her favourite movie, Great Expectations; how sweet.
The decor was stunning! The edge of the head table was lined with bouquets of different flowers such as roses and lilies along with centre piece candles. The guest tables were decorated with crystal and flower pieces, with a green amaranthus hanging from branches that were suspended over the tables.
The couple exchanged vows at 5pm in a lavish ceremony costing approximately a massive £800,000 (lucky Jessica). Their two-year-old daughter Maxwell was flower girl and their one-year-old son Ace, was the ring-bearer. Maxwell walked down the aisle alongside Jessica’s sister, Ashlee’s son Bronx, followed by Ace with the rings. The kids were followed by Ashlee and Jessica’s mum, Tina, who walked down the aisle as joint Maid of Honour, leading Jessica’s TWELVE bridesmaids. Jessica walked down the aisle to an 18-piece orchestra playing the score to her favourite film, Great Expectations. During the vows, nerves got the better of the couple, and they had to restart the vows after Jessica mistakenly said her own name instead of Erics! With the vows exchanged and a kiss that sealed the deal, a diamond encrusted Neil Lane wedding band, which matched Jessica’s ruby and diamond engagement ring, topped it all off.
Jessica designed the six-tier cake with flowers and gold fondant to match her dress. It is rumoured that the ‘Joanie and Leigh’s Cakes’ creation had layers of coconut, vanilla and berries. Deee-licious.

Now to the important part, Jessica wore a custom-made Carolina Herrera princess style dress, which was quite simply stunning. The champagne and gold strapless embroidered gown was partly designed by Jessica herself. She accessorised with simple 12-carat diamond drop earrings by Neil Lane.
