5 Things We Loved About Bennifer’s Lavish Second Wedding
Here’s to love being stronger the second time!
Actress and singer, Jennifer Lopez
had her second wedding with actor Ben Affleck at Ben’s incredible 87-acre property in Georgia last Saturday, August 20. The guests were said to have worn white as a strict dress code to match the extravagant light-hued decorations and floral arrangements. And there to witness the couple’s 2nd tying the knot intimate ceremony were their family members and close friends.
After calling off their wedding which was supposed to be set last January 2004, the couple officially went public with all their kids present for the proceedings.
We can’t get over how novel the romance between the couple is, so we’re sharing with you five things about the second wedding of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck that romance book lovers and modern couples can take inspiration from.
Affleck proposed with a 6-carat pink diamond last 2002 and was supposed to get married last 2004.
The pairing “Bennifer” was first connected in 2002 on the set of the ill-fated Gigli as the two portrayed gangsters who fell in love while attempting to kidnap a neurodivergent man. Unfortunately, the movie became a huge flop as many criticized the lack of chemistry between the couple. Stunning the entertainment world, Ben Affleck bucked the era’s jewelry as he gave J.Lo a gigantic pink diamond engagement ring which later then was followed by celebrities following suit as Lopez’s ring went against the trends of all time.
The couple got officially engaged for the second time.
By April 2022, the couple went off again by storm as Lopez revealed that the actor finally asked the question nearly almost two decades after their first engagement.
They finally got hitched!
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is Kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” Jennifer Lopez wrote. The couple flew to Vegas and stood in line for a license with four other couples, as they made the same journey towards the wedding capital of the world. Jennifer even explained that they barely made it on time and their wanted person to officiate was unavailable. Yet, they moved forward and finally got their license.
For the second wedding, Jennifer Lopez’s gown is stunning!
Wearing an elegant, short-sleeved, white body-hugging gown with a long veil, Jennifer Lopez stunned the audience with her ruffled train with the couple’s five collective children helping the bride to carry her veil as they exited the ceremony. Lopez was said to have worn a custom Ralph Lauren gown at her second wedding.
To match the extravagance of the bride’s outfit, the groom wore a white tuxedo and black pants to recreate his look that he wore to their Las Vegas ceremony last month.
The wedding was celebrated for three days!
The wedding kicked off on Friday with “Drinks and Dessert” with guests dressed along with the theme of festivity. After the ceremony, the guests changed into “formal white attire” and enjoyed dinner and dancing in the barn that was once featured on HGTV’s Fantasy Open House. Finally, the celebration festivities were wrapped by a casual Sunday brunch.
