Summer's Hottest Weddings

It's a summer of love – and marriage – as Gabrielle Union, Ashlee Simpson, Brad & Angelina and other stars say "I do"

JESSICA SIMPSON & ERIC JOHNSON

It was like something out of a fairytale for the longtime couple during their magical July 5 nuptials at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. The bride wore a custom Carolina Herrera gown and veil, while her groom donned a charcoal gray John Varvatos tuxedo. "It's so surreal," Simpson told PEOPLE after the event. "This has been something we've wanted ever since we met." The lovebirds were joined by Simpson's mom, Tina, and her sister, Ashlee, as maids of honor and Johnson's father, Stephen, as the best man. But it was 2-year-old flower girl Maxwell and 1-year-old ring bearer Ace that got the standing ovation walking down the aisle!
