This month seems to be a great time for celebrity weddings — after a lengthy engagement of nearly four years, Jessica Simpson has finally tied the knot with her beau, former NFL player Eric Johnson in a lavish wedding held at the San Ysidro Ranch.

We loved Jessica Simpson’s wedding look, which was classic and chic with just the right amount of glamour. While some were expecting Jessica Simpson to show off her newly toned body (she reportedly lost 50 pounds post-birth in preparation for her wedding) with a slinky dress, she went for a custom-made Carolina Herrera gown instead, which was a divine champagne and gold strapless multi-layered tulle creation. Speaking on the design to PEOPLE magazine, Herrera said, “The whole dress is embroidered in gold and feels very regal.” She also noted that her goal was to transform the bride into a “beautiful golden girl”.
Since the revealing of her first official wedding photo, the internet has also been abuzz with Jessica Simpson’s wedding beauty look — a romantic palette with purple on eyes designed by makeup artist Karan Mitchell. The touch of sparkle brought on by Neil Lane diamond earrings was a touch by Jessica Simpson’s longtime friend and stylist Nicole Chavez. As for her hair, it was “sexy, easy and ethereal” and “nothing too contrived”, as described by Jessica Simpson’s hair stylist Roque Jimenez.
Following the ceremony, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson spent their wedding night at the rustic and romantic Ty Warner cottage of San Ysidro. The cottages are apparently the most luxurious on the grounds, which features its own private patio, pool, and other amenities such as canopy beds, jacuzzis and in-room spa services. Other notable celebrity couples who have spent the night there include John F. Kennedy and Jackie Onassis Kennedy on their honeymoon in 1953, and Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
We wish Jessica Simpson all the happiness for her second marriage, and we hope second time’s the charm for her!
