She's officially Mrs. Watson! Jamie Lynn Spears tied the knot with her boyfriend Jamie Watson in New Orleans, Louisiana on Friday, March 14, and now even more details have been revealed about the "very emotional" ceremony.
Spears, 22, and Watson, 31, arrived with their families at the Audobon Tea Room Garden two hours before saying "I do" for a quick rehearsal, an insider tells Us Weekly. (Although big sister Britney and her boyfriend David Lucado stayed back at their hotel.) At around 6:30 p.m. (and after the bride-to-be got ready!), guests began to arrive and were seated in white chairs for the 7 p.m. ceremony.
The intimate wedding was a family affair as Jamie's daughter Maddie, 5, walked down the aisle first in a white dress as the flower girl. Her cousins, Britney's sons Sean, 8, and Jayden, 7, followed close behind wearing black tuxedos and white bow ties. (Maddie is Jamie's daughter with ex Casey Aldridge.) Britney, 32, donned a silver ensemble for the special occasion.
Jamie Lynn then entered and walked down the aisle with her dad Jamie. She looked stunning in a French Lyon lace v-neck gown by Liancarlo with a full-length veil. She kept her blonde locks pulled back in a low bun, and carried a beautiful bouquet of white and pink peonies.
"It was a beautiful ceremony and very emotional," an eyewitness tells Us of the nuptials. "Jamie Lynn was crying during the vows and Jamie looked like the happiest guy I've ever seen get married. After they were pronounced husband and wife, he turned to the audience and said, 'Yeah!' He was so excited and everyone was cheering."
After the tears, came the party! The newlyweds and their loved ones then exited to the Tea Room as they feasted on a 5-tiered square cake detailed with sugar flowers. Centerpieces at each table included orchids, and peonies, and guests were later gifted beer cozies at the end of the night.
The Jamies clearly had a blast — as well as Spears' baby girl! Maddie fell asleep at 10:30 p.m. and had to be carried back to the hotel by grandma Lynn, the insider adds to Us. "She was exhausted but she didn't want to let go of her little flower girl bouquet."
