When and Where:

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz tied the knot on May 17, 2008 under a tent behind her parent's estate in Encino, California. The bride was 23 and secretly pregnant and the groom was 28 at the time.

What They Wore:

Ashlee wore a traditional Monique Lhuillier wedding gown and switched into a sexy black number for the party. Pete wore a suit by Dior Homme. The rings were designed by William Noble.

The Guest List:

They were married in front of 150 friends and family including Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo, Cacee Cobb and Donald Faison, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, Ryan Schinmann, and Nick Stein.

The Flowers:

The gorgeous floral bouquet and table arrangements consisted of red roses, black calla lilies, and black orchids.

Taking the Vows:

Ashlee Simpson's father, Joe Simpson, officiated the ceremony. The baptist minister was there as she and Pete took their non-denominational vows.

Wedding Gifts:

Instead of gifts, guests were asked to make donations to the Invisible Children Charity or Casa Hogar Elim orphanage in Mexico.

Capturing the Memories:

By request of the bride and groom, no cameras or videos were allowed at the wedding. It turns out that the newlyweds had bigger plans for the images. They sold the exclusive photo rights to People magazine for $1.3 million.
