The loving couple tied the knot at Vice City’s famed Little White Wedding Chapel. Jennifer Lopez shared details of the special day, including photos, in her On The JLo newsletter, which she captioned “Ms. Jennifer Lynn Affleck” signed.
“We made it. Love is beautiful. Love is adorable. And love turns out to be patient. Been patient for 20 years, it begins. Exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, stood with four other couples for a license, all making the same trip to the wedding capital of the world… We all wanted the same thing – to be recognized by the world as partners and to declare our love for the world through the ancient and almost universal symbol of marriage,” she explained .

Of her wedding she continues: “With the best groomsmen imaginable, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and bonded. given the rings that we will wear for the wedding the rest of our lives. But in the end it was the best wedding we could imagine. A wedding that we dreamed of a long time ago and that (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and each other) finally came true. When love is genuine, the only thing that matters in marriage is each other and the promise we make to love one another, to care for one another, to understand one another, to be patient, loving, and kind. We had. And much more. The best night of our lives. Thank you Little White Wedding Chapel for allowing me to use the break room to change while Ben changed in the men’s room,” the star added.
It is the singer’s fourth marriage and the actor’s second.
To conclude her note, the superstar told readers how much love her life is now. “They were right when they said, ‘All you need is love.’ We are so thankful to have it in abundance, to have a wonderful new family with five amazing children and a life we have never looked forward to so much. Hang in there long enough and you might find the time of your life at a Las Vegas drive-in movie at half past midnight in the tunnel of love with your kids and whoever you’re going to spend your life with. . Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things – and it’s worth the wait.”
Long live the lovers!
