Jessica Simpson’s Engagement Ring
Jessica Simpsons Engagement Ring : Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey began dating when Simpson toured with his band, 98 degrees. She played Nick’s love interest in the Jessica Dean Attorney music video for the band’s hit song, “My Everything.” The couple began dating although took a break after two years. They reconnected after 9/11, when Jessica called Nick to make sure he was safe…….he was supposed to be flying out of NYC with the band, on that fateful day.
Jessica reportedly dreamed of her wedding day ever since she was a little girl. Nick Lachey proposed with a four carat pear shaped diamond highlighted by two side stones, set in platinum. The picture-perfect proposal took place on a yacht off the coast of Hawai. He sealed the deal on their wedding day, presenting her with an eternity band encrusted with large diamonds.
Jessica’s wedding dreams came to light on her 22nd birthday. In October of 2002, Jessica and Nick walked down the aisle and said “I Do” at the Smith Chapel as part of the Riverbend Baptist Church in Austin, Texas. Jessica’s friend presided over the ceremony where 350 guests were in attendance. Jessica wore a strapless, beaded Vera Wang dress with a sweeping train while Nick wore a Hugo Boss tux. Her blond locks were styled by celebrity hair stylist, Ken Paves. The reception was held at Austin’s Barton Creek Resort, a popular golf and tennis retreat. At the reception, the couples also exchanged songs: Nick sang “My Everything,” a song specially written for Jessica. Jessica had a friend sing a song she’d written for Nick titled “My Love.” Sparks must have been flying between the pair later that evening as Jessica was very vocal about remaining a virgin up until their wedding night.
Jessica was so in love with her wedding and the wedding planning process that she released a book, “I Do: Achieving Your Dream Wedding.” Soon thereafter, the MTV show “Newlyweds” highlighted the couple’s first few years together as a married couple and made the couple a household name.
