Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz shotgun wed, world surprisingly remains on axis
Well, it’s official: Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz tied the knot. I didn’t really think this counted as news until I found out Jessica Simpson was involved AND brought Tony Romo as her date despite reports he banged half of Chicago. Now that’s love. Anyway, People has the nuptial details complete with baby rumors:
Simpson, 23, wore an ivory lace wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier and jewels by William Noble as she and Wentz, 28, exchanged vows in front of 150 guests at her parents’ Los Angeles area home.
Dad Joe Simpson performed the non-denominational ceremony, while sister Jessica served as maid of honor. Wentz’s English bulldog, Hemingway, was the ring-bearer. Guests included Jessica’s boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, as well as actor Donald Faison with girlfriend CaCee Cobb.
Simpson, who sources say is pregnant with the couple’s first child, and Wentz, the bassist for Fall Out Boy, have been linked since the fall of 2006, when they were spotted kissing at a New York nightclub. They announced their engagement last month.
Being the selfless, loving father that he is, Joe Simpson sold the photo rights to Ashlee and Pete’s wedding, so, since we can’t see any yet, I included shots that’ll help us pretend we’re there – which I’m totally doing. Yup, I can see it now: The happy couple are exchanging hand-written vows at the altar while I sit quietly in my pew ogling Jessica Simpson’s breasts. And, aww, Tony Romo saw me and is getting ready to Hail Mary the ring bearer at my face. *sniff* I love weddings.
EDIT: Added pics of Tony and Jessica arriving together. Is it me or is she burping in these photos? God, she’s perfect…
