ASHLEE & PETE

In the ultimate rocker wedding, Simpson, 23, and Fall Out Boy bassist Wentz, 28, tied the knot May 17 at her preacher father's L.A. home (her dad also performed the ceremony). Sister Jessica was the maid of honor at the gothic event – decorated with 10,000 black magic roses and featuring Wentz's English bulldog Hemingway as ring bearer. "Everyone was calling me Bridechilla because I was superchill," Simpson told PEOPLE. "But before we went out, I was like, 'Oh my God, I have my butterflies now!'" Six months later, the couple welcomed their first child, son Bronx Mowgli.
