Family was a big part of Jessica Simpson's wedding.

In addition to the singer and fashion mogul's father Joe officiating the July 5 nuptials, her mother Tina and sister Ashlee were both maids of honor and her adorable kids Maxwell, 2, was flower girl, while Ace, 1, played ring bearer, People magazine reports.

"Before I walked out, I kept hearing all the applause, so my kids got standing ovations!" Simpson said. "It's all about family for us."

Even Simpson's husband Eric Johnson had his father step in as best man and blessed Ashlee Simpson's fiance Evan Ross with the honor of being a groomsman.

The two were married in front of more than 270 guests at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California, and Simpson looked beautiful in a Carolina Herrera wedding gown.

Johnson, 34, said he saw his "gorgeous wife" Simpson, 33, "crying" as she walked toward him down the aisle.

"I think my heart was exploding a little bit," Johnson added.

Simpson said her big day was "so surreal," and that a special wedding like this was "something we've wanted ever since we met."
