Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck kept their Las Vegas wedding intimate, with just them, Lopez's mom, and her kids attending. But a bigger celebration is happening imminently, TMZ reports, and it'll be taking place in Georgia.
Multiple sources close to the couple tell the outlet Affleck is hosting the party “in the next few weeks” at a home he owns in “the coastal town of Riceboro, Georgia.” Guests will include family members, close friends, and some celebrity pals too, the sources said. Lopez was at the home with her manager party planning a couple weeks ago, the outlet added, and Affleck was believed to be there, too.
Lopez shared intimate details from her Vegas wedding to Affleck yesterday, along with photos of herself in her two wedding dresses. She wrote of the ceremony itself in her On the JLo newsletter:
Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world. Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday—all of us wanting the same thing— for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage.
We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed).
So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives. They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last.
When love is real, the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving and good to one another. We had that. And so much more. Best night of our lives. Thank you to the Little White Wedding chapel for letting me use the break room to change while Ben changed in the men’s room.
They were right when they said, “all you need is love”. We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to. Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at twelve thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through, with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with. Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things—and worth waiting for.
