Pop star Jessica Simpson burst into tears as she walked down the aisle at her wedding on Saturday (05Jul14).
The singer/actress married former football player Eric Johnson at a ranch in Santa Barbara, California in front of more than 250 guests, and the ceremony was officiated by Simpson's father Joe.
The groom has now revealed his bride began crying as she walked down the aisle to him before they exchanged vows, telling People.com, "I saw my gorgeous wife coming towards me and she was crying. I think my heart was exploding a little bit."
Simpson adds of her big day, "It's so surreal. This has been something we've wanted ever since we met... It's all about family for us."
The couple is parents to a young son and daughter, who acted as a ring bearer and flower girl, and the singer reveals the youngsters received a rapturous reception as they walked out in front of the congregation, adding, "Before I walked out, I kept hearing all the applause, so my kids got standing ovations!"
Simpson wore a gold dress by Carolina Herrera for the ceremony, and later changed into a sparkly blue mini-dress for the reception, and she adds of her fashion choices, "Everybody thought I was going to wear a dress that completely showed off my new bod (body). But I can't help but want a princess dress! I'm a Southern girl at heart. I like everything big!"
Singer Jessica Simpson has become Mrs. Eric Johnson after tying the knot in Santa Barbara, California. The bride wore a custom Carolina Herrera gown as she wed former American football player Johnson at the San Ysidro Ranch on Saturday (05Jul14) in front of more than 250 guests, including her sister Ashlee Simpson and her fiance Evan Ross, best friend CaCee Cobb and her actor husband Donald Faison, and pal Jessica Alba and her partner Cash Warren.
The happy couple's two-year-old daughter Maxwell served as a flower girl and its one-year-old son Ace was given the role of ring bearer. Ashlee's five-year-old boy with ex-husband Pete Wentz, Bronx, also took part in the ceremony.
A statement issued by the newlyweds to People.com reads: "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 nuptials took place a day after Simpson and Johnson hosted a pre-wedding barbecue at the same venue to celebrate America's Independence Day (04Jul14) with all of their guests.

"The bride wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera," the rep said in a statement. "It was a small ceremony with close family and friends." Which, it would've had to have been small—who gets married on a Tuesday?
It is reported that Wood and Bell have been engaged since January of this year. Hollywood.com has reached out for a comment, but did not hear back at the time of publication.
Mazels all around for the happy couple!
