The pair had a small wedding ceremony at Sin City's famous Little White Wedding Chapel.
It was truly an emotional moment for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck who tied the knot on Saturday, July 16 at Sin City's famous Little White Wedding Chapel. Chapel employee Kenosha Booth Portis was working when the pair said their vows at the Las Vegas venue.
Portis recalled the "exciting moment" to Good Morning America and said that as Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49 "were reading each other's vows, they were very sweet," Booth Portis remembered. "They both were emotional. They cried to each other. The kids were right there behind them," she added. Speaking about Lopez's attire she said the Marry Me star "had on a nice, elegant, beige, lacy-type dress. It had a train on it. The veil was beautiful. Everything was very sleek and beautiful. She was stunning," she added.
"She had a beautiful white bouquet, and he had a boutonniere as well, that matched." Portis told PEOPLE that their wedding was "beautiful. It wasn't overly emotional, but some tears were shed by them both. Jennifer looked stunning."

Lopez revealed more details about her wedding in her On the JLo newsletter, "So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben's closet, we read our vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we'll wear for the rest of our lives," mentioning that the ceremony was "exactly what we wanted." She added, "When love is real, 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."

Their love story is a truly magical tale of second chances at love. The actors were first dating way back in 2002 and sparks flew so fast that they got engaged that November. However, just days after they decided to get married in September 2003, they postponed and eventually called it off in January 2004. Affleck went on to marry Jennifer Garner in 2005; but the pair divorced in 2018. Lopez married her third husband, singer Marc Anthony, in 2004, but called it quits in 2014. Her most recent relationship with fiancé Alex Rodriguez ended in April 2021.
Affleck and Lopez rekindled their romance after JLO's breakup in April 2021 and became Instagram official in July of that year. The couple is holding onto their second chance at love and it looks like they're not letting go this time.
