After having their more private wedding, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez tied the knot again in August 2022, surrounded by family and friends at his Georgia estate. The actress wore a white Ralph Lauren couture gown for her second wedding at the $8.9 million home, while Affleck matched her in a black and white tuxedo.
During their second wedding, the couple also included their children from past relationships with Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, Jennifer Garner’s children, with Affleck attending.
Lopez’s twins with Marc Anthony, Emme, and Max, were also in attendance. Several celebrities were invited to the festivities, including Affleck’s friend, Matt Damon, and his wife, Luciana Barroso.
Kevin Smith, his wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, and Jason Mewes were also at the party. Jane Fonda, George Clooney, Jimmy Kimmel, and Renee Zellweger were also expected at the celebrations.
The “Good Will Hunting” star and his bride arrived aboard a private jet at an airfield near the site of their wedding. During the celebrations, Lopez surprised Affleck by serenading him with a new and unreleased song!
She sang and danced for him while he sat in a chair a few steps away from her. In her track, Lopez sang about still being in love, having passion, and not being able to get enough, all while wearing her wedding dress.
The actress was so prepared that she even had backup dancers on singers to assist her! After tying the knot for the second time, the couple also had something special up their sleeves.
While Affleck and Lopez went on a honeymoon when they had private nuptials during their first wedding, the pair also had to have a second honeymoon! This time, their destination was Italy!
They were accompanied by bodyguards visiting some of Italy’s hot spots. While outside a Cartier window shop, the duo saw something that led to them kissing passionately, causing an awkward moment for one of their bodyguards, who was two feet away.
The poor guard struggled as he tried to look away from the scene in front of him while standing on the sidewalk, but he needed to maintain surveillance. Lopez was dressed in all white, with a brown-colored sun hat, matching shoes, and a bag.
The musician’s husband matched her in a white T-shirt and sneakers and wore blue jeans and a blue shirt. Lopez and her new husband were seen dining out in Lake Cuomo on a Saturday afternoon during their honeymoon.
While dining outside, the “Batman” star was spoon-feeding his wife during their romantic meal. This time, Affleck wore a blue and white striped shirt and cream white pants, and Lopez appeared to be wearing a brown embroidered maxi dress.
Love was in the air for the pair as the “Hustlers” actress reciprocated her husband’s gesture by wiping Affleck’s lips with a napkin. The couple also shared kisses and touched hands while eating.
After sharing a long kiss, the duo went on a shopping spree where they were seen strolling hand in hand. According to sources, when the couple had their first honeymoon in Paris, it coincided with Lopez’s 53rd birthday!
Affleck and the songstress enjoyed a dinner date at that time at La Girafe in front of the Eiffel Tower. TMZ got images of the pair during that time, and one of them showed the couple sharing a tender moment.
It appeared Affleck became emotional and teary, causing his wife to hug and cradle his face. Soon enough, the duo was back in top shape as they took a stroll around with the actor smiling again.
Having two marriage ceremonies shows how much the pair love each other after having to call off their original wedding 20 years before. However, they had one thing they weren’t ready to share.
According to a Hollywood Life source, Lopez and her husband weren’t planning on having children together. The insider said the couple felt they’d passed that part of their lives, with the informant adding:
“J-Lo’s connection with his kids makes Ben even more certain that this is fate.”
The source alleged that Affleck and Lopez were more focused on having a blended family, and the former’s ex, Garner, found that “amazing.” The star’s former wife reportedly didn’t mind when their children spent time with Affleck and his new wife.
When the trio was away, Garner had some alone time, which was a rare occurrence. The publication’s insider also noted how Lopez had a special bond with her husband’s youngest child, Samuel.
