Jennifer Lopez (53) and Ben Affleck (50) are still reminiscing about their big day. On August 20, they celebrated their big wedding in the US state of Georgia with around 100 guests. In the past few days, the singer revealed details about the ceremony in her "On The JLo" newsletter. In a recent post, the 53-year-old tells of difficulties shortly before the wedding, according to "People".
"It had rained every day for the week at sunset. Everyone was concerned about the heat, not to mention the thunder and lightning that came on cue almost every day at the exact time the ceremony was supposed to start on Saturday," she wrote. "Also, we all had stomach problems and didn't recover until late in the week, which, along with a few other unexpected setbacks, set the stage for a great wedding weekend." Ben Affleck's mother was reportedly treated at a local hospital shortly before the wedding after apparently injuring her leg the day before the ceremony.
At that moment, the singer also surprised her husband with a special gift. Singer Marc Cohn (63) accompanied the ceremony with his songs "The Things We've Handed Down" and "True Companion". The couple discussed the latter song as the perfect wedding song more than 20 years ago. "I asked Marc to surprise Ben by singing it at our wedding and he was kind enough to come." On the day of the wedding, "some old wounds were healed and the weight of the past was finally lifted off our shoulders," Lopez wrote. "The circle closes - and not at all as we had planned. Better."
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have been husband and wife since July: In the famous "Little White Wedding Chapel" in Las Vegas, they said yes in a close circle. After the big wedding in Georgia we went to Italy for the honeymoon. Affleck and Lopez dated from 2002 to 2004.
