Diana Ross’s son, Naess, married his long-time girlfriend Kimberly Ryan this week in a beautiful bohemian wedding featuring a glamp-ing after-party. The couple, who have been together for eleven years, have one child together, and are expecting their second child soon.

The outdoor boho chic wedding was held at Rancho Dos Pueblos Beach in Santa Barbara, California, – and featured a laid-back vibe with a no shoes option. The event was styled by Mindy Weiss, the top celebrity event planner.

We’re married!!

In attendance were family members Diana Ross, Tracee Eliss Ross, Evan Ross with wife Ashlee Simpson, and Jessica Simpson.

Singer Ashlee Simpson also served as a bridesmaids, wearing a flowy white dress with a flower crown. The bride wore a white and gold embellished, long sleeve off-the-shoulder dress, with a gold belt. The groomsmen all wore hats (per the grooms request), while the groom himself wore a top hat with his Ralph Lauren tuxedo.

The couple got married outside in a beautifully lush setting in front of a floral tee-pee The reception took pace inside a rustic chic barn, with long tables that had gorgeous floral arrangements down the center. Brother Evan Ross performed a song for the couples first dance, and rumor has it Lady Diana Ross performed for the newlyweds as well.

The night ended with guests sleeping in luxurious tents on the beach, which they called #CampHappiNaess, which also served as a great wedding hashtag.
