Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck get married in Las Vegastext_fields
Celebrity couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are now husband and wife. The duo surprised fans after they broke the happy news of their wedding, 18 years after their first romance failed.
The couple got married on Saturday, according to a marriage license they filed in Clark County, Nevada, that was seen by AFP.
Sharing a note about their wedding via People, Jennifer said, "Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient. Exactly what we wanted. 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."
The actress further revealed that her wedding dress is old and they chose a jacket from Ben's closet. She called her wedding the 'best possible wedding we could have imagined'. She wrote in her newsletter, "They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last."
Pictures from their wedding have gone viral on social media and fans are loving it.
The pair first met on the set of the widely panned movie "Gigli" in 2002.
They became a media sensation as they dated but postponed their planned 2003 nuptials, then announced their relationship was over in early 2004.
"Bennifer" -- the couple's public nickname from their first highly publicized relationship -- set the internet alight last year when photos of them together again began circulating.
Jennifer Lopez, 52, and Ben Affleck, 49, announced their engagement in April.
This is the fourth marriage for Jennifer Lopez and the second for Ben Affleck.
Jennifer Lopez was previously married to actor Ojani Noa, dancer Cris Judd and singer Marc Anthony, with whom she shares 14-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Ben Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner and they are the parents of Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
