Television star, singer, actress as well as a fashion designer, Jessica Simpson is the complete package. Eric Johnson is a former NFL football tight end, also a Yale legend for giving new meaning to the number 21 (21 receptions in the 1999 Yale – Harvard fixture including the winning touchdown).
These two people had one thing in common, when they came together in May, 2010 – Broken hearts from erstwhile failed marriages. While it was the Independence Celebrations weekend all over the states, it was time for vows and nuptials in the Simpson – Jackson household.
Jessica Simpson and Eric Jackson tied the proverbial knot after two children (Maxwell Drew Johnson – daughter born on 01/5/2012 and Ace Knute Johnson – son born on June 30th, 2013). The lovely couple decided to walk down the aisle and formally solemnised their relationship.
The private ceremony witnessed only by family and friends was held at a luxurious ranch in San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Santa Barbara County, California on July 5th, 2014. The lavish outdoor ceremony was held at the Rose Gardens with chevron seating under a canopy.
Jessica looked resplendent in a custom designed multi layer sumptuous gold and champagne strapless gold embroidered tulle gown by Carolina Herrera. Since Jessica desired blue, Carolina added a blue ribbon inside the gown. Jessica wore purple eye shadow and hair half back.
The sweet kisses and irresistible hit maker wore Brian Atwood shoes and a cathedral long veil. So as to complement the veil and gown by Herrera and the diamond earrings from Neil Lane, Karan Mitchell chose a romantic palette make up for accentuation. The sparkling earrings were an addition by stylist and Simpson’s old friend Nicole Chavez.
The wedding itself was preceded by a weekend of celebrations that was undoubtedly a pompous one. The rehearsal dinner had been held on Thursday night, 3rd July and was followed up by a pre wedding 4th of July barbecue ( where the guests enjoyed corn on cob, ice creams, water melon slices and baby back ribs).
The ceremony was party to more than 250 guests. Ashlee Simpson, Jessica’s sister was present with Fiancé Evan Ross (The two are set to wed over the Labour Day weekend). Jessica Alba and Topher grace (from That 70s show) were also there along former friends of Jackson’s from his NFL and Yale days such as Tim Ratty.
The couple’s son Ace (One year old) and Nephew, Bronx (Ashlee’s 5 year old son) served as ring bearers while daughter Maxwell (two years old) served as the flower girl.
The bride and groom appeared to applause with the famous song by the Beach Boys from 1966 god only knows playing. The relationship was made official in July, 2010 with a romantic getaway in Capri, Italy and duo had got engaged the same November.
Twice, the wedding had been postponed because of her two pregnancies. The two made their eternal commitments finally with Jessica looking every bit the fashion diva and a stunner with an incredible post baby body.
