3 New Details We Learned About Jessica Simpson's Wedding


The details about Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson's wedding keep rolling in! So far we've reported on Simpson's dress and hair, plus the couple's vows and venue, but we've recently found out even more scoop about the pair's California nuptials. From a wardrobe malfunction to the song that played while the couple exited the ceremony, let's recap the new tidbits we've learned:

The Wardrobe Malfunction:
Don't worry! It wasn't the bride! It was, unfortunately, the groom — but it might be the sweetest wardrobe malfunction ever. After the couple's adorable one-year-old son Ace made his way down the aisle, Eric bent down to scoop up the little guy, and his pants split! "Eric completely split his pants!" Simpson tells People. "So after the ceremony, when everybody left, Eric was in his boxers and tux jacket. There's always got to be something that happens!"

The Cake:
Bel Air bakery Joanie and Leigh's Cakes spent one month creating Simpson and Johnson's confection, which was covered in fluffy meringue buttercream and burnished gold fondant to match Simpson's dress, Joan Spitler tells People. "The flowers are sort of in that unkempt, garden feel of the wedding," Spitler says of the dessert's floral details. The bakers sent the couple five tiny cakes to test at home before they decided on alternating layers of coconut cake with a coconut cream filling and vanilla cake with mixed berries and cream.

The Ceremony & Reception:
Thanks to the wedding video released by People TV, we now know the new Mr. and Mrs. Johnson walked down the aisle to the score from the 1998 film adaptation of Great Expectations. In fact, the flower-filled reception was inspired by the movie, which stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Ethan Hawke. "She really wanted to have that feeling in the movie when they're dancing," Simpson's wedding planner Mindy Weiss says.

Stay tuned ... We have a feeling even more Simpson-Johnson nuptial news will emerge!
