Bennifer get emotional as they finally take the plunge in a lowkey ceremony!
All surprises may not be good but Bennifer surprised us all with a very pleasant surprise. I love reading about celebrity weddings, all the grand spectacles, and the build-up before a wedding is what creates all the buzz. But J.Lo and the Batman opted for a much low-key impromptu Los Vegas wedding.
Jennifer Lopez announced their marriage to her fans with her newsletter On the JLo. Jennifer Lopez mentioned in her newsletter that they barely made it to the White Chapel by midnight but the staff were very gracious and stayed open longer than usual. J.Lo who has changed her name to Jennifer Affleck now mentioned these details in her newsletter.
Kenosha Portis, who was working as a witness in Las Vegas’s Littel White Wedding Chapel on Saturday, was struck with excitement and joy when she saw Bennifer walk in. Kenosha Portis recalled while talking to Good Morning America how awestruck she was when she realized they were getting ready to marry Jennifer Lopez. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez had the most beautiful, warm, and emotional 10-minute ceremony. Portis while describing Bennifer’s wedding ceremony added “ As they were reading each other’s vows, they were very sweet. They both were emotional. They cried to each other. Their kids were right there behind them.” Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez share five children between them. But it is not clear if all of their children attended the wedding.

The ceremony was very low key but J.Lo didn’t hold back when it came to her wedding dress. She had two gorgeous dresses for her big day. The first one was a white sleeveless design by Alexander McQueen. But she later changed it to an off-the-shoulder lace gown by Zuhair Murad. The Zuhair Murad gown featured a corseted bodice, a fishtail train, and a matching veil. And all the buzz and speculation began online when she shared in her newsletter that the dress is from an old movie she starred in. She went on saying “ I’ve had this dress for so many years, and I've been just saving it, saving it, saving it, and now I’m wearing it on my wedding day”. There is speculation online that the wedding gown is from the 2004 film Jersey Girl. Both Affleck and Lopez starred in the film and there was a wedding scene in the film between the real-life couple which was later cut from the film by director Kevin Smith.

The pair first got engaged almost 20 years back, with a dress from an old movie, and a jacket from Ben’s closet. They finally read their vows to each other and exchanged rings and we couldn’t be happier. Although we would’ve loved to see Bennifer tie the knot in a grand wedding, we are happy nonetheless. Although there are rumors that Bennifer is planning a grand wedding celebration with family and friends in the coming days.
