Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Wedding videos
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have formally sealed their marriage, a source close to Lopez told CNN.
The pair wed Saturday, during an “intimate ceremony in Las Vegas,” the insider added.
Lopez announced their Vegas wedding in her newsletter Sunday, closing the letter with a new name: Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.
“Last night we traveled to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world,” Lopez wrote. “We barely made it to the modest white wedding chapel by midnight. They gladly stayed open late a few minutes, and allowed us to take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, reportedly formerly used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, it cost extra since he was in bed).”
Lopez wrote she donned a dress from an old movie and Affleck wore a jacket from his closet.
“We read our own vows in the modest church and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” she wrote. “In the end, it was the best conceivable wedding we could have envisioned.”
The Bennifer love saga is one that’s been more than 20 years in the making. The couple initially met in December 2001 on the set of the rom-com “Gigli,” where they portrayed crooks stranded on a job together and the duo struck up a real-life friendship.
By November 2002, the two were engaged but postponed their wedding in September 2003 claiming “the enormous media attention” around their wedding.
They never made it down the aisle and formally called off their engagement in January 2004.
It then took another 17 years—with children and marriages—before Lopez and Affleck found their way back to one another.
Affleck proposed to Lopez again in April as she was soaking in a bubble bath.
“I was thrown entirely off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the reality that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes?’ I responded YES of course that’s a YES,” she said in her newsletter.
