The pic couldn’t be any sweeter as new hubby Eric Johnson gives her a romantic kiss on cheek!
In this week’s cover story, Jessica opens up about her July 5 nuptials at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, telling the mag that “It’s all about family for us.”
Jessica Simpson's Wedding by the Numbers!
She wasn’t kidding! Mom Tina and sister Ashlee served as her maids of honor, while Eric’s dad Stephen stood beside his son as best man. Ashlee’s future husband Evan Ross was among the 11 groomsmen.
The flower girl and ring bearer were the couple’s own little ones; Maxwell, 2, and Ace, 1.
Simpson gushed, "Before I walked out, I kept hearing all the applause, so my kids got standing ovations!"
Even the officiate was a family member! Jessica’s dad Joe married the pair in a nondenominational ceremony.
Eric, who wore a gray John Varvatos tuxedo, remembers the emotional moment his bride walked down the aisle as 275 guests looked on.
"I saw my gorgeous wife coming towards me and she was crying. I think my heart was exploding a little bit."
Jessica called the wedding "surreal,” adding, “This has been something we've wanted ever since we met."
