Jessica Simpson Marries Eric Johnson in California
Felicitations are in order for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson: the couple of four years, 33 and 34 respectively, married earlier tonight in an outdoor ceremony in Santa Barbara County.
"We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment," the couple said in a statement to People."To say 'I do' in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives."
The singer/actress/designer and former NFL tight end tied the knot at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California, the same spot where Melissa Etheridge and partner Linda Wallem exchanged vows earlier this year. Simpson wore a custom Carolina Herrera gown.
The 250 guests in attendance included Simpson's sister Ashlee Simpson and her fiancé Evan Ross, Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren, and CaCee Cobb and Donald Faison. The couple's two children Maxwell Drew Johnson, 2, and Ace Knute Johnson, 1, served as flower girl and ring bearer, respectively.
Simpson and Johnson began dating in May of 2010; Johnson proposed in November of the same year, but wedding plans had been delayed several times due to the arrival of their two children. This is the second marriage for both newlyweds.
