Just a month after getting married in Las Vegas on 16th July, newlywed couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck celebrated their love in Georgia with a huge garnering of friends and family.
After 20 years since they first fell in love, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are celebrating the wedding that they have waited for. The pair celebrated their marriage with family and friends in Riceboro, Georgia on 20th August, Saturday. The couple announced their status as husband and wife with a second wedding event by throwing a big party at Ben’s private estate.
A source confirmed to PEOPLE that 50-year-old Ben and 53-year-old Jennifer tied the knot again in front of the family. Following the romantic ceremony E! News source stated: “The ceremony is over and it ended with a kiss.”
All guests including Ben’s longtime friend Matt Damon and his wife Luciana wore white for the event held on the ground of Affleck’s 87-acre compound outside Savannah as the outlet reported. Popular podcaster, Jay Shetty who is a friend of Jennifer took charge of the ceremony, which was arranged by Colin Cowie.
Lopez looked stunning wearing a white Ralph Lauren gown with a long, flowing train and veil at the ceremony, with Affleck in a tuxedo with a white jacket and black pants. They were photographed walking down a white aisle with their children following them.
On Friday a source told PEOPLE that Affleck and Lopez had “an extraordinary weekend of celebrations planned,” including “a pre-wedding party, a ceremony and … lots of fun lined up.”
Lopez “is ecstatic” about the plans, and their “kids will be part of the celebrations too. It will be a beautiful weekend,” according to the source.
When Lopez disclosed in her On the JLo newsletter the previous month that she and Affleck got married at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, she stated that the late-night ceremony was “exactly what we wanted.”
“in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real … at very, very long last,” she added.
“When love is real,” Lopez penned back then, “the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving and good to one another. We had that. And so much more. Best night of our lives.”
“They were right when they said, ‘all you need is love.’ We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to. Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning in the tunnel of love drive-through, with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with. Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things-and worth waiting for,” Lopez concluded, signing the newsletter “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.”
Last month, Affleck and Lopez had a post-wedding trip to Paris and celebrated the Parker actress’s birthday near Eiffel Tower with a romantic dinner.
