So love has been all up in the air this Labor Day weekend! Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade tied the knot, and on Sunday afternoon, Ashlee Simpson (sister to Jessica) and Evan Ross (brother to Tracee Ellis) made their love official with a ceremony at the home of Evan’s mother, and musical legend, Diana Ross.
According to Us Weekly, the couple were set to say “I Do” at the Greenwich, Connecticut home of Diana, who Evan said played a big part in planning the nuptials. Diana and Stevie Wonder were both on hand to sing, with Wonder performing at the reception, and Ross reportedly at the wedding, according to Perez Hilton.
Also according to Us, Simpson, 29, was walked down the aisle by her son Bronx (her 5-year-old son from her first marriage to Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz), and her sister, Jessica Simpson was the matron of honor. Both of Jessica’s kids, son Ace and daughter Maxwell, served as the ring bearer and flower girl for the ceremony.
This is, as previously mentioned, the second marriage for Ashlee, and the first for Evan, who popped the question back in January. The couple started dating last July.
And Evan’s family seems to love Ashlee. Tracee Ellis Ross was “over the moon” for her brother when she found out they were engaged. And just last week she said “I’m so excited for you and Ashlee and I’m just so blessed to have you in my life!!!” while sending her bro birthday wishes. How sweet! One thing the couple has in common? Definitely some powerful families.
Congrats to Evan and Ashlee on their marriage! Once we can get our hands on pics of from their big day, we’ll be sure to update this happy story.
