Jennifer Lopez—excuse me, Jennifer Affleck—is a married woman. And thankfully for me, a celebrity news editor, she's just shared all the details.
After her Las Vegas nuptials with husband (!) Ben Affleck on Saturday, July 16, Lopez shared a sneak peek of the secret ceremony with readers of her “On the JLo” newsletter. Here’s everything we know so far:
Lopez writes that the Vegas experience is “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 said of the Vegas vibes. “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.”
In selfies taken with Ben, Lopez wears an off-the-shoulder gown with long lace sleeves from Zuhair Murad, styled with a billowing veil and a simple pendant necklace.
JLo (sorry, I’m not giving up “Lo” and I’m most certainly not writing “JAff”) notes that the ceremony was witnessed by “a dress from an old movie” and Ben’s tuxedo jacket, a little white number he had just laying around his closet (movie star things). Little detail is given about the rings, but no matter—I want more info on that movie dress!
Lopez has starred in numerous movies in which she wears wedding dresses—including 2022’s Marry Me, for starters. She also wears wedding dresses in Monster in Law (2005) and The Wedding Planner (2001), the latter of which is said to have inspired Meghan Markle’s gown from her 2018 royal wedding. But none of the three iconic wedding dresses appear to be JLo’s pick.
