On Thursday’s “On The JLo” email, Jennifer Lopez gave her admirers a glimpse at her opulent second wedding to her husband, Ben Affleck.
The music queen, 53, revealed she entered the church while listening to “True Companion” by Marc Cohn, which she and Affleck, 50, deemed to be the “ideal wedding love song” when they got engaged more than 20 years ago.
Jennifer Lopez also shared how she contacted Marc to come to their wedding and sing songs, and it was her special surprise for her newlywed husband, and she said it was generous of the singer to appear at their wedding.
The singer of “Waiting for Tonight” also revealed that the song “The Things We’ve Handed Down” played as their respective children from prior marriages entered the wedding.
She said that the twenty years between her dreams of youth passed by to this present day. She said they had embraced it and that the long wait had brought more to their marriage.
Jennifer Lopez also said they were not marrying each other. Instead, they were marrying their children into a new family. We merely asked them to defend us in front of the wedding party. Each one did, much to our great honour and satisfaction.
The weekend did not, however, go off without a hitch entirely. A stomach sickness hit “all of us,” according to Lopez, in the days before the wedding.
The three-day celebration of the gorgeous wedding began on Saturday with the ceremony at Affleck’s enormous plantation-style house in rural Georgia.
For the event, Lopez donned three distinct Ralph Lauren outfits. The first was a spectacular short-sleeved ensemble made up of more than 1,000 handkerchiefs and 500 metres of fabric cut into ruffles manually placed around the skirt and turtleneck collar.
The couple gave “JB”-branded tote bags as gifts to their guests. Each bag was given a personalised touch by Lopez and Affleck, who attached name tags to the straps for each participant who attended the southern soiree.
