When planning a celebrity wedding in Las Vegas, it is imperative to ensure that paparazzi roam around the venue.

But Jennifer Lopez doesn’t need other media to cover her weddings. She has an exclusive newsletter that can be dedicated to those events. 

Following her super-publicized relationship and engagement with Ben Affleck 20 years previously, it is likely that she will be more careful about how much information gets out.

JLo, the newly dubbed “Mrs. Affleck,” revealed in this month’s issue of On The JLo went on a small and intimate wedding in Vegas that almost ended with her and Ben being late. They fell in line with four other pairs who also wanted their certificates. 

“They graciously stayed open late a few times,” Mrs. Affleck said, “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).” 

Together with their children – all five – as witnesses, “a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet,” the pair exchanged vows and rings. The icon referred to it as “the best possible wedding we could have imagined.” 

Mrs. Affleck also posted a video showing herself, dazzling in white, after putting on the wedding clothes in the chapel’s break room and Mr. Affleck in his “wedding changing area,” aka the men’s bathroom. 

“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,” the superstar said. 

“Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things – and worth waiting for.” 

She concluded the newsletter, saying: “With love,” she signed, “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.”

Bennifer History

2001

JLo and Ben met on the set of Gigli back in 2001, where they played criminals who were brought together by chance. There began their real-life friendship that lasted until this day. 

2002

In April, the rumors of Ben Affleck and JLo having a relationship more than friends started when he made an ad for their movie in a trade publication. But, of course, he also complimented her performance throughout it all.

“It has been nothing but an honor and a pleasure to work with you,” he wrote in the ad. “I only wish I were lucky enough to be in all your movies.” 

And then signed it: “With love, respect, and gratitude, Ben Affleck.” 

In July, JLo and Chris Judd filed for divorce but had allegedly been separated for quite some time.

“Jennifer Lopez and Chris Judd have announced they have resolved all issues arising out of their marriage,” said the pair’s lawyers in a statement at the time. “The resolution was extremely amicable… The two will remain friends.” 

The paparazzi started taking photos of JLo and Ben canoodling a month after that.

The couple got engaged three months later in November. Ben went on one knee with a resplendent, custom 6.1-carat diamond ring in pink from Harry Winston. 

He also went on to play Lopez’s love interest in the music video for her song, “Jenny From the Block.” Affleck, in the video, kissed her popular booty in a scene of the pair on a yacht. 

2003

JLo and Ben made their red carpet debut at the 75th Annual Academy Awards. 

But the couple decided to delay their nuptials and release a statement before they tied the knot.

“Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date. When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry. We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families, and our friends.” 

At the time, sources said the couple was “taking a break.” 

2004

The unexpected ending to this fairy-tale romance left fans heartsick as they announced the call off of their engagement.
