Ashlee Simpson marries love Pete Wentz in intimate LA ceremony

18 MAY 2008
Pop singer Ashlee Simpson has tied the knot with her beau of two years, Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz. The intimate ceremony took place a month after announcing their engagement.

The bride was dressed in an ivory lace wedding gown by Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier, accessorised with a diamond necklace and earrings. Ashlee, 23, exchanged vows with her 28-year-old beau in front of 150 family and friends at her parent's estate in LA.

Performing the non-denominational ceremony was dad Joe Simpson, with big sister Jessica serving as maid-of-honour. Acting as an unusual ring-bearer was the groom's pet bulldog, Hemingway.

By the actress's side was her beau Tony Romo, dispelling rumours the two had split. Guests also included Nicole Richie, with her Good Charlotte rocker love Joel Madden.

The newlyweds, who are expecting their first child together, held an Alice In Wonderland themed reception featuring a wedding cake with a top hat, teapot and stopwatch on the top.
