Jessica Simpson married her fiancé Eric Johnson on Saturday at San Ysidro Ranch, California, in front of 275 guests.
And she shared her wedding pictures and details with PEOPLE magazine.
The star dazzled in a custom-made, champagne and gold embroidered Carolina Herrera gown.
Her long blonde tresses were styled elegantly with the top layers pinned back to give volume and the rest falling down her back in soft curls.
"Everybody thought I was going to wear a dress that completely showed off my new body" Jessica said of the voluminous floor-length gown.
"But I can't help but want a princess dress! I'm a Southern girl at heart. I like everything big!"
"It's all about family for us," Jessica said. So for the ceremony, she asked her mother Tina and her sister Ashlee, to be her maids of honour.
The bride made her entrance to a 18-piece orchestra playing the sweeping score from her 'favourite movie of all time' - the 1998 film adaptation of Great Expections. And once guests caught sight of Jessica as she made her way to the alter, there were audible gasps.
"I saw my gorgeous wife coming towards me and she was crying," remembered Eric: "I think my heart was exploding a little bit."

When it was time to party, the Dukes Of Hazzard star changed into a sparkling blue mini-dress by Zuhair Murad and apparently the revelry carried on well into Sunday morning.
"The whole weekend has been completely magical for us" she said, "We've really built such a beautiful life, and it just keeps getting better."
