Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially tied the knot! The couple got married on Saturday, during an "intimate ceremony in Las Vegas," according to a source close to the newlyweds.
J.Lo confirmed their Vegas wedding in her newsletter on Sunday and signed off with her new name: Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.
"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," she wrote. "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 (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed)."
"We read our vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we'll wear for the rest of our lives," she wrote. "In the end, it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined."
The Bennifer love saga is one that's been more than 20 years in the making. The couple met in December 2001 on the set of the rom-com "Gigli," where they played criminals stuck on a job together. By November 2002, the two were engaged but decided to postpone their wedding. They never made it down the aisle and called off their engagement in January 2004. It took another 17 years, including children and marriages, before they found their way back to one another. Affleck proposed to Lopez again in April while she was taking a bubble bath.
"I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite speechless and he said, 'is that a yes?' I said YES of course that's a YES!"
