Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are celebrating their newlywed life as husband and wife with a three-day wedding party for friends and family at the private Affleck Georgia mansion.
The happy couple tied the knot nearly a month ago in Las Vegas, Nevada, in a midnight ceremony on the famous Strip, attended by just a few people, including two of their children from previous marriages. .
“It’s all about J.Lo,” a source told Page Six. “Ben wants all the attention on her on their big day.”
The list of celebrities heading south for the weekend is expected to include Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel, Ben’s brother Casey Affleck and Drea de Matteo.
Representatives for Affleck and Lopez did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
The “Waiting for Tonight” singer is expected to wear “a bespoke Ralph Lauren couture dress” made in Italy, with Vogue capturing her fashion journey.
Affleck’s private property is set on 87 acres and the main mansion is 6,000 square feet, and is designed to resemble an old plantation house with 24-foot columns, shutters, and a wrap-around porch.
The resort has three separate structures and is about an hour from Savannah on the Hampton Island Exclusive Reserve.
Affleck reportedly bought the property for $7 million in 2003 when he was first engaged to Lopez.
Insiders revealed that the “intimate celebration for family and friends” begins with a rehearsal dinner on Friday and the actual ceremony on Saturday.
A barbecue and picnic will close the three-day weekend of events, with the publication reporting that Colin Cowie will lead the planning details for the lavish affair.
Ben and Jen first got engaged in 2002 and planned to marry in September 2003, but postponed their wedding and eventually called off their relationship in January 2004.
They rekindled their romance in April 2021 after she split with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez and he split from Ana de Armas. She announced their engagement earlier this year and revealed he proposed while she was in the bathtub.
Lopez announced her marriage to Affleck in a newsletter post to subscribers, where she revealed they took their vows at the Little White Wedding Chapel right after midnight July 17.
Court documents show the 53-year-old ‘Hustlers’ actress requested a ‘new name’ on the case, which was first received on Saturday July 16 and filed the following day with the clerk’s office of Clark County. It will now legally pass through the name Jennifer Affleck.
The ‘Marry Me’ star previously changed her name when she was married to singer Marc Anthony. Nearly six months after their divorce was finalized in 2014 — and three years after they separated — Lopez has dropped her last name, Muniz.
J.Lo and Marc have 14-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
She was also married to dancer Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003 and had a year-long marriage to Ojani Noa, which began in 1997 and ended in 1998.
Afflek and ex-wife Jennifer Garner have three children: Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13 and Samuel, 10.
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years of patience,” Lopez wrote of the intimate nuptials, which she says , were “exactly what we wanted”.
“They were right when they said, ‘all you need is love.’ We’ve never had more reason to hope,” she wrote.
“Stick around long enough and you might find the best time of your life at a Las Vegas drive-in at half past twelve in the morning in the Tunnel of Love, with your kids and whoever you’ll be spending with. an eternity. . Love is a big thing, maybe the best thing, and it’s worth the wait.”
She captioned her post: “With love, Ms. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.“
