Ashl33n Tie The Knot!

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are now officially husband and wife after being wed in a family-oriented ceremony in the Simpson family home in Encino, CA. Earlier this week, when white tents started springing up in the Simpson home backyard, I guessed that maybe they were being erected as a decoy to throw the paparazzi off the trail of the real wedding site -- I guess the wedding planners weren't that savvy. Here are a few photos of some of the wedding guests who were lucky enough to be invited arriving at the Simpson home yesterday afternoon:

But all eyes cameras were on the look-out for the arrival of Jessica Simpson to see if her rumored ex-boyfriend Tony Romo would accompany her to the nuptials. There was a report that Papa Joe Simpson suggested (insisted?) that Tony attend the wedding as Jessica's date as a show of support for the family ... it turns out that Tony did just that. Here are pics of Jessimo's arrival at the wedding site:

I'm very interested to see the photos that will surely be released to some magazine this week (you can be sure that Papa Joe worked out a lucrative deal for the sale of those photos) cuz I want to see Romo in a tux, posing with Jessica and smiling. I really do not believe the couple is still together and I want to see what lengths they will go to to look as if they were still a happy couple.

Here are pics of a real happy couple making their arrival at the wedding site yesterday ... Nicole Richie and Joel Madden were among the famous friends who attended Ashl33n's wedding yesterday:

You will note that Nic/Joel are standing in front of a big sign that greeted the guests upon arrival, informing them that they are giving away their rights by attending the wedding ... I was able to partially decipher the text of the sign:


Please be advised that [the] possession of cameras of any kind (including ... cell phones with cameras) in or around the venue ... prohibited. If you are seen with any such device [it will be] confiscated by security personnel, and [neither the bride] nor the groom shall assume responsibility [for the return] of such device.

Plese be ... special event is being photographed [by approved] authorized personnel. By enterting [this venue you are] consenting to the inclusion of your [image in] connection with any such ... [agencies], and which manner ... to you and without ...

Brills ... Papa Joe wants to make sure that the sale of the wedding photos are not diluted by any unauthorized photography.

Anyways, the deal was done ... and a publicist for the couple gave the scoop to People magazine:

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz were married Saturday evening in an intimate ceremony, their spokesperson tells PEOPLE exclusively. "We're delighted to confirm that Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson were married this evening in front of family and close friends," said the spokesperson. Simpson, 23, wore an ivory lace wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier accessorized with a diamond necklace and earrings by Neil Lane 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 told PEOPLE on Friday that she was never the type to dream about her wedding when she was growing up, but changed her tune once she got engaged. "Now that I'm doing it, I definitely have that big dream. It kind of went more fairytale than I thought. I got really into it." Added Wentz, "She has this amazing imagination and to watch it take place is an awesome thing." With the help of wedding planner Mindy Weiss, Simpson got her dream nuptials: The Alice in Wonderland themed reception featured a wedding cake by Sam Godfrey of Perfect Endings with a top hat, tea pot, stop watch and a pot of flowers on top. The elaborate centerpieces of black beauty roses were by Mark's Garden. Guests were served Rose Veuve Clicquot champagne followed by a sit-down dinner and dancing to a deejay.

Since news of the wedding came out, new reports have also come out "confirming" that Ashlee Simpson is 4 months pregnant. Nope, I still don't buy it. I believed Pete Wentz when he immediately denied that Ashlee was pregs when the rumor first came out ... could she have gotten pregs since then? Possibly (in fact, I know Papa Joe is counting on it). I'm sure they're gonna have a baby at some point but I do not believe that Ashlee was pregs in the weeks leading up to the release of her new album. No way.

Absent all this rumor drama, I am very happy that Ashlee and Pete have tied the knot. They make a great couple, Pete is a good man and I wish all the happiness in the world for the newlyweds. I worry about Papa Joe Simpson's influence on them tho ... he already ruined Jessica's marriage to Nick Lachey -- let's hope he learned the lesson and will stay out of this new union. Congrats and good luck!!!
