Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez Are Getting Wed Again
The newlyweds tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas last month. However, Page Six says they are throwing a three-day lavish wedding extravaganza for family and friends at Affleck’s colossal estate in Georgia. Celebrities expected to attend the wedding bash include Jimmy Kimmel, Casey Affleck, Matt Damon, and Drea de Matteo.
The ceremony will start on Friday with a rehearsed dinner, then the main wedding ceremony on Saturday and a wrap-up with barbecue and picnic on Sunday.
An insider shared via Page Six that all the focus will be on Lopez, and Vogue will reportedly cover the event. “It’s going to be all about J.Lo. Ben wants all of the focus to be on her for their big day.”
The actress is expected to wear a custom-made Ralph Lauren wedding dress. Before this, she had previously worn two wedding dresses for her Vegas ceremony– a dress created from an “old movie” she worked on and an off-shoulder lace gown by Zuhair Murad.
They Hired Luxury Event Planner For Their 3-Day Wedding Bash
Sources shared with Page Six that Affleck and Lopez have hired a luxury event planner, Colin Cowie, to help create the luxury wedding of their dreams.
Cowie has created extravagant bashes for some of the crème-de-la-creme of Hollywood, including Kim Kardashian, Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Jordan, Nicole Kidman, and others. He has also worked with Lopez in the past.
Cowie and his team promise to give their clients the wedding of their dreams, including a “royal wedding of epic proportions to the most glamorous, sophisticated and tasteful backyard wedding.”
However, his services aren’t cheap. According to Cowie’s website, his company organizes events that range from $25,000 to $25 million.
Ben Affleck And Jennifer Lopez Had An Intimate Wedding In Las Vegas
Following a three-month engagement, The Blast exclusively reported that the duo surprised fans after they had a low-key Vegas wedding at the world-famous Little White Wedding Chapel last month.
The “Marry Me” star shared the details of her nuptials in her newsletter, signing out with her new name, “Jennifer Lynn Affleck.”
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” the entertainer wrote in her newsletter. “In the end, it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. Once 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.”
An inside source shared with Us Weekly that the pair decided to opt for a “fun and casual” wedding.
“They both are so comfortable with each other and make each other so happy, so they don’t want to wait any longer,” the source revealed.
Their Love Story Began On The Set Of ‘Gigli’
The pair, who met in 2001 when they both starred in “Gigli,” began a public romance and got engaged the following year. They called off the engagement three years later and went their separate ways. The New York native claimed that the split was her life’s first “heartbreak” in her memoir, “True Love.”
“It felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest,” the 53-year-old confessed in her book. “And when I realized that I wasn’t going to have the fairytale family I wanted to be set in, well, that was when I started to fall apart.”
She concluded, per UsWeekly, “I sought comfort in another person, trying to find someone who could make me feel loved and wanted in my loneliest hours.”
The actress moved on to Marc Anthony, to whom she was married for seven years. They share 14-year-old twins, Eme and Max.
