Last year, Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, celebrated not just one, but two wedding ceremonies.
The first took place in July 2022 at the iconic Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, where the couple exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony attended only by their children.
Two Families Unite
Lopez and Affleck’s blended family was a central part of their celebrations.
Lopez shares 15-year-old twins, Emme and Max, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, while Affleck has three children—Violet, 17, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 11—with his former wife Jennifer Garner.
Their second wedding, which occurred the following month, saw a larger gathering of friends and family at Affleck’s residence outside of Savannah, Georgia.

Lopez’s Instagram caption featured lyrics from her upcoming song “Dear Ben Part II,” expressing her emotions and reflecting on their journey together.
