It’s official Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are married!
According to reports, the couple exchanged their vows in a small and intimate ceremony in Las Vegas. Lopez would confirm their marriage with a letter to her fans.
“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,” the actress 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).”
She added, “We read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives. In the end, it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined.”
Lopez and Affleck reunited 20 years after they dated in 2001. They were engaged but called it off in 2004.
After reuniting, Affleck proposed to Lopez which took her by surprise. “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 literally speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes? I said YES of course that’s a YES,” Lopez also wrote in the newsletter.
Congratulations to the happy couple.
