Almost two decades after falling in love in Los Angeles, actor Ben Affleck, 49, and singer/actress Jennifer Lopez, 52, got married in Las Vegas. After staying apart for years and years, the two rekindled their relationship last year.
The couple got engaged in 2002 but called off the relationship a year later. After parting ways, they both got married to different people, had kids, and made their careers, before finally reuniting last year and getting engaged.
In her newsletter, On the JLo, the singer reveals details about her wedding. Jennifer Lopez told about her wedding dress and shared candid pictures of the ceremony.
Read what JLo wrote about her relationship and her wedding in the newsletter:
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient. Exactly what we wanted.”
Jennifer Lopez revealed in her newsletter that she got married in a “dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet.”
She wore a white off-the-shoulder gown with long sleeves, a corset bodice, a fishtail train, a matching veil, and a sweetheart neckline.
The bridal piece is from Zuhair Murad Bridal’s Spring Summer 2023 collection. Pictures from the ceremony were posted on several fan pages as well.

The singer also shared details of how they got married in the newsletter.
“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. 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.”Jennifer Lopez
She signed her newsletter as Jennifer Lynn Affleck, confirming the wedding.
