PEOPLE has since posted a photo on Instagram captioned “Here comes the bride: your first look at Jessica Simpson on her wedding day! For all the details (and her exclusive wedding album), pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday”. You can see her veil and the top of the wedding gown in what Jessica’s hair stylist Roque Jimenez called “Sexy, easy and ethereal… Nothing too contrived.”
“It was a labor of love,” added Roque of styling the day’s look.
“The whole weekend was magical for us,” Jessica tells PEOPLE. “We feel complete.”
E! News reports, both bride and groom flubbed their vows; Jessica accidentally said her own name instead of Eric’s, and Eric cried and got so choked up he had to start over.
Joe officiated the wedding ceremony (as he did for Jessica’s wedding to first husband Nick Lachey for the Newlyweds cameras). The 250 guests included Jessica’s mother Tina, Topher Grace, Donald Faison, Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, and sister Ashlee Simpson and fiance Evan Ross.
Jessica’s son, Ace, 13 months, was the ringbearer and Jessica’s daughter, Maxwell, 2 was flower girl walking with Ashlee’s son Bronx, 5.
Joe was spotted poolside with his male companion, Jonathan Keith, after which they reportedly attended the wedding together.
“Jess has a lot of gay fiends and accepts everyone for who they are. She doesn’t care what people say about her dad, she loves him and wants him to be happy,” a family insider tells NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB.
The source continued, “It would have been easy for her to not invite her dad, plus one to the wedding. But she wanted Joe to bring his special pal.”
