"I thank everyone who supported us on the spectacular day and our neighbors who were kind enough to let us have fun. We had great friends that traveled from Norway, London, Switzerland, and from all over the world. Wishing Evan and Ashlee congratulations," she told the mag. "I want only love, happiness, and joy for my son and his bride."

Aww! Well, it looks like Simpson may have won over her mom-in-law. It was previously revealed that Simpson was super nervous and intimidated to initially meet her The Hunger Games actor husband's iconic mom, but luckily for her, Ross was very open and welcoming from the start.
