Simpson and Johnson began dating in May 2010 and became engaged in November of that same year. They have a daughter and son together, Maxwell Drew, born in 2012, and Ace Knute, born in 2013. Both Maxwell and Ace had roles in the wedding as flower girl and ring bearer. Maxwell was also accompanied down the aisle by her cousin, Ashlee Simpson's 5-year-old son, Bronx.
As Us Weekly reports, Ashlee acted as a bridesmaid alongside CaCee Cobbs. Ashlee's fiancé Evan Ross also attended alongside Simpson's parents, Joe and Tina. Actress Jessica Alba was also in attendance with her boyfriend Cash Warren.
Simpson wore a Carolina Herrera gown as she walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game', according to sources.
The couple spoke to People and expressed how overjoyed they both were to have said their vows in front of their family, particularly their two children. The 33-year-old Simpson and 34-year-old Johnson said "We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment. To say 'I do' in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives."
The newlyweds have enjoyed a relaxed weekend with their family in the lead up to the wedding. On Friday they celebrated 4th July by throwing a barbeque with karaoke and games. On Thursday (3rd July) NFL player Johnson found time to unwind before the festivities with a game of golf with his family and future father-in-law.
This is the second marriage for both Simpson and Johnson. Simpson was previously married to Nick Lachey from 2002 but they separated in 2005 and the divorce proceedings were finalised a year later. Johnson was previously married to stylist Keri Johnson from 2005 to October 2010, as Us Weekly reports.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
The couple have been together for over 4 years.
