No one expected it to happen so quickly – and especially not so secretly. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez said yes this weekend – and there was no dry eye at the ceremony in Las Vegas.

A wish without pomp: Ben Affleck, 49, and Jennifer Lopez, 52, married in Las Vegas on Sunday, July 17, 2022, just after midnight. “We did it !” The singer formalized it in a circular in the afternoon. They have almost arrived at the closing of the small chapel of the white wedding. Opening hours have been stretched a bit especially for the celebrity couple. And that’s not the only reason the bride and groom shed tears.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez let their emotions run wild

For Ben and Jennifer, twenty years after their separation, a Hollywood dream has been sealed in the famous wedding chapel on the glitzy Las Vegas Strip. No wonder the two lovebirds were overwhelmed by their feelings. When the wedding vows were recited to each other, all the floodgates were suddenly opened. Kenosha Portis, who worked as a bridesmaid at the chapel on Saturday, July 16, 2022, told Good Morning America the couple were “emotional” and “crying” during the ceremony.

The last-minute wedding just before the doors closed came as a complete surprise to the employees. ‘It was so exciting. I mean, we were getting ready for graduation and suddenly a special guest walked in. I started shaking a little and I was like, ‘Oh my god, it’s Jennifer Lopez who’s getting married,'” Kenosha recalled of the exciting moment.

“She was wearing a beautiful, elegant beige lace dress. It had a train. The veil was gorgeous,” the Little White Wedding Chapel bridesmaid said. “Everything was very elegant and beautiful. She was gorgeous.”

The first photos show the happy couple

In the “On the JLo” newsletter, fans of the actress were able to see the first videos and photos. A photo shows the bride beaming with joy. The teasing 52-year-old sticks out her tongue and closes her eyes as Ben Affleck gives her a peck on the cheek. Another photo was taken by the bride and groom themselves. This love has finally found its happy ending.

Ben Affleck + Jennifer Lopez announced their engagement in April 2022

Lopez and Affleck were already engaged twenty years ago. Then the separation, new partners and children – and in April 2022 the big surprise: The former dream couple wants to get to know him again and celebrates his second engagement. Three months later, Jennifer writes. “We made it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years of patience.” And finally, Jennifer Lopez became Jennifer Lynn Affleck, as her signature on the newsletter reveals.

The couple walked down the aisle simply and without much fuss. “Exactly what we wanted. We landed in Las Vegas last night, stood in line for a license with four other couples who were all on the same trip to the wedding capital of the world. Behind us, two men were holding hands and wanted the same thing from us: for the world to recognize us as partners and for us to show our love to the world through the ancient and almost explain the universal symbol of marriage.” How romantic a wish can be in Vegas!

Hours after the secret wedding was announced, Lopez’s hairstylist Chris Appleton shared the first photos and videos of the beautiful bride. The clip shows the singer in her simple wedding dress a few minutes before she says yes to her great love.

Small wedding in the closest family circle

Jennifer seems wonderfully happy in her writing aftertaste: “You were right when you said all it takes is love. We’re so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family with five amazing children and a life we’ve never had more reason to look forward to.”

Speaking of kids: Apparently, at least J.Lo’s twins, 14-year-old Emme and Maximilian, were there. “You might find the best time of your life at a drive-thru in Las Vegas at 12:30 p.m. in the tunnel of love with your kids and the one you’ll be with forever. Love is a good thing, maybe only the best of all things – and it’s worth the wait,” philosophizes the new Ms. Affleck.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez received their official marriage license on Saturday, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. A process that the responsible district authority of Clark County confirmed a day later to the German Press Agency on request. At this point, Ben and Jennifer were already husband and wife.

A moving love story with a happy ending

A romance in advance: “Yes, we are engaged”, Lopez confirmed her serious intentions with Ben in an interview with the American television network ABC in late 2002. In 2004, the singer and the actor announced their separation after two years together. The 52-year-old married singer Marc Anthony, 53, a little later. With him, she had twins Emme and Max in 2008. Affleck also found new love: he married fellow actress Jennifer Garner, 50, in 2005. He has three children with her: Violet, 16, Seraphina , 13, and Sam, ten.

A year ago, Jennifer and Ben reunited after two failed relationships. There were the first engagement rumors when the singer was seen with a large diamond ring in her hand in paparazzi photos published by “Page Six” in early April 2022.

A few weeks earlier, in early February, Lopez told “People” that the couple are approaching their relationship differently today than before. “It’s a beautiful love story that we got a second chance,” she explained. “We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re at different times in our lives, we have kids now and we have to be very aware of those things.”
