Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez honored their love with friends and family in Georgia just over a month after their Las Vegas wedding.
Just over a month after saying “I do” in Las Vegas, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez celebrated their nuptials with a ceremony in Georgia on Saturday in front of friends and family.
Longtime friends of Affleck’s Matt Damon and wife Luciana, director Kevin Smith and his wife Jennifer, Clerks actor Jason Mewes and his wife Jordan Monsanto, and top Hollywood talent agency Patrick Whitesell and his wife, model/actress Pia Miller, were among the celebrities there.
At the ceremony on Saturday, Lopez donned a white Ralph Lauren gown with a long, flowing train and veil, while Affleck wore a tuxedo with a white jacket and black pants. They were pictured doing so while their kids followed them down a white aisle. Jay Shetty, a well-known podcaster and life coach, presided over the wedding.
Visitors were seen wearing nothing but white while on the grounds of Affleck’s 87-acre estate outside of Savannah. An all-white piano, beautiful tables set up on a riverbank dock, a platform for a fireworks display, a marquee on the estate with white chairs for visitors surrounded by greenery and white flowers, and other preparations for the major party were all present.
Affleck, 50, and Lopez, 53, had “an exceptional weekend of celebrations planned,” according to a source, which included “a pre-wedding party, a ceremony, and… loads of fun lined up.”
Lopez, according to the source “is overjoyed about the preparations, and their children will take part in the festivities as well. This weekend will be lovely.”
The late-night wedding was “just what we wanted,” Lopez said in her On the JLo newsletter last month when she disclosed that she and Affleck wed at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.
She continued, “The wedding turned out to be everything we could have hoped for. One that has finally come true after many, many years of dreaming.”
“When a marriage is based on true love, Lopez said at the time, “the only thing that matters is each other and the commitment we make to one another to love, care, understand, be patient, loving, and nice to one another. There it was. And a whole lot more. Our best night ever.”
“All you need is love, as they said, and they were correct. We are very appreciative to have that in abundance, a new, great family of five incredible kids, and a life with so much to look forward to “She went on. If you wait long enough, you might discover the best moment of your life with your kids and the person you’ll spend the rest of your life with within a drive-through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning in the tunnel of love drive-through.
Love is a wonderful thing—possibly the best of all things—and it’s worth waiting for, Lopez said in her closing remarks, signing her name as “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.”
The newlyweds intended “on throwing a bigger celebration so they can celebrate with family and friends,” a source previously told PEOPLE. They don’t yet have a honeymoon planned, the insider continued. According to Jennifer, every day spent with Ben is a honeymoon.
Jennifer has genuinely thought that this is it ever since they rekindled their romance. She is looking forward to spending her golden years with Ben, the insider said. She is satisfied and happy with Ben. She was at a loss for what more to ask for. She finds everything to be perfect.
During their recent post-wedding trip to Paris, Affleck and Lopez treated the Hustlers actress to a special meal beside the Eiffel Tower to mark her birthday.
