The much-in-love couple pop- singer Jennifer Lorenz and Actor Ben Affleck tied the knot on Saturday, July 16 in a secret ceremony at a chapel in Las Vegas. They had gotten engaged in April earlier this year. Lopez stated in her newsletter, “Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient. Exactly what we wanted.”
“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,” Lopez wrote. “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).”
Inher letter, Lopez also gave details of her dress she wore from an old movie and Affleck wore a jacket from his closet. She said, “We read our vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” she wrote. “In the end, it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined.”
It’s been more than 20 years since the Bennifer love saga began. Their first encounter took place on the set of the rom-com “Gigli,” where they played criminals stuck on a job together and struck up a friendship in real life.
The couple got engaged in November 2002; however, they decided to put off their wedding until September 2003 due to “the enormous media attention” that had been focused on them. They formally called off their engagement in January 2004 but never made it down the aisle.
After spending the next 17 years apart, having children and getting married, Lopez and Affleck eventually reconnected. In April, as Lopez was enjoying a bubble bath, Affleck again got down on one knee and proposed the singer.
“I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes?’ I said YES of course that’s a YES,” she wrote in her newsletter.
