In the days that follow Jessica Simpson’s wedding to Eric Johnson, details about the ceremony and reception are ever so slowly trickling out… and as much as we want the full story, it sounds like we’re being kept in suspense.
Fortunately, People — who reportedly paid $300,000 for the exclusive rights to Jess and Eric’s wedding photos — was willing to supply some inside info from the bride and groom themselves about their wedding party, and about their adorable flower girl and ringbearer. According to the newly minted husband and wife, their children Maxwell and Ace were the real favorites of their 275 guests during the ceremony.
“Before I walked out, I kept hearing all the applause, so my kids got standing ovations!” Jessica said.
And then, Jessica had her “Here Comes The Bride” moment, standing alongside her 12 bridesmaids, including sister Ashlee Simpson and mom Tina as her maids of honor. And on Eric’s side? A grand total of 11 groomsmen.
“I saw my gorgeous wife coming towards me and she was crying,” Eric shared. “I think my heart was exploding a little bit.”
Then, Eric and Jessica were officially married in a ceremony performed by Jessica’s father, Joe, and after their 80 month engagement, finally got their happily ever after. It’s about time, we’d say!
“It’s so surreal,” Jessica said. “This has been something we’ve wanted ever since we met.”
