The couple took a trip to Las Vegas to say “I Do.”
Lopez just unloaded a treasure trove of photos and videos from their intimate day. The couple, who were engaged in 2002, but broke things off right before their wedding in 2004.
The former couple rekindled their romance in 2021 after her broken engagement to Alex Rodriguez and the rest as they say “is history.”
JLo dropped the bombshell news of their engagement by releasing a video on her Facebook page, telling fans about the exciting moment Affleck popped the question!
In the video, she said, “So I have a really exciting and special story to share,” before directing her fans to her newsletter, onthejlo.com, which she calls her “personal circle,” where she shares very personal secrets and information about her life.
Much like the engagement announcement, the triple threat shared behind the scenes photos on Sunday, July 17, to her website.
Jenny from the block wrote, “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.”
JLo & Ben Waited “Twenty Patient Years”
One photo showed Ben Affleck kissing his beautiful bride on the cheek while JLo threw her head back with a big smile across her face.
She described the night calling it “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,” she wrote. “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.”
The Beaming, Beautiful Bride!
The newlyweds barely made it to the wedding chapel before it closed. Unfortunately, they were unable to get an Elvis impersonator hired for their big night.
Their witnesses appear to be some of their children. JLo has Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
Affleck has Violet, Seraphina and Samuel with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
Despite the subtleness of the wedding and lack of fanfare, JLo said this was their dream wedding.
“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,” she wrote. “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.”
The Blast obtained Bennifer’s marriage certificate.
According to the court documents, Bennifer tied the know on Saturday, July 16th, in Clark County, Nevada.
