For Simpson, who turns 34 on July 10, it proved be one of the most beautiful moments as well. As seen in PEOPLE’s photo exclusive, the bride chose a wedding day look that was “sexy, easy and ethereal,” says Simpson’s hair stylist Roque Jimenez. “Nothing too contrived.”
To complement her stunning custom Carolina Herrera gown and veil, Simpson’s makeup artist Karan Mitchell chose a romantic palette for her makeup. And to add some simple sparkle, Simpson’s longtime friend and stylist Nicole Chavez added Neil Lane diamond earrings.
“It was a labor of love,” says Chavez of putting together Simpson’s wedding day look.
Same could be said for the event itself. “The whole weekend was magical for us,” Simpson tells PEOPLE. “We feel complete.”
