Nick Lachey wasn’t embarrassed about getting emotional during his wedding to pop singer Jessica Simpson.

Lachey, of the boy band 98 Degrees, teared up as a soloist performed a ballad Simpson had written for him, titled “My Love.”

“I’m an overly emotional person,” the 29-year-old says in the spring issue of InStyle Weddings. “I even cry at weddings of people I barely know.”

Simpson, 22, held his hands and smiled as he fought back tears before more than 250 guests in Austin, Texas. The Oct. 26 wedding is featured on the cover of the magazine, on newsstands Tuesday.

Lachey said when he and Simpson started planning the wedding, he wouldn’t have minded a small, private affair in a tropical location. Simpson’s reaction: “No, absolutely not. We are going to have a huge wedding.”

“Jess is very into romance and the whole fairy-tale aspect of it,” he says. “I just wanted her to have the day be everything she wanted it to be.”
