When J.Lo and Ben Affleck tied the knot at their low-key Vegas wedding back in July, one thought crossed our minds: is there another big celebratory bash on the horizon? The answer turned out to be yes, and the event was every bit as glam as you’d expect. From the dress to the celebrity guests, here’s everything we know about Bennifer’s special day, take two.
The event took place on August 20, 2022, in Georgia at Affleck’s mansion, which is apparently a very special place for the couple. “Ben bought the property 20 years ago when they were engaged the first time around,” a source told People magazine. So the venue served as another reminder of their patience and how their relationship has come full circle.
Big day, big plans
Guests were apparently aware beforehand that this wouldn’t be your typical wedding. An insider told People in the lead-up that Bennifer had an “extraordinary weekend of celebrations planned.” And the fun is said to have begun on the Friday evening with a delicious Southern-style meal and pre-wedding party.
Transforming the back yard
To make the mansion fit for the big day on Saturday, the garden was equipped with a long, white aisle — perfect for the bride’s arrival. And either side of this were plants and trees speckled with white flowers. Even the guests wore white! The pair clearly wanted a classic, timeless affair that echoed the sentiments of their rekindled romance.
But the best white outfit at the do was, of course, the bride’s. J.Lo’s dress was a custom-made Ralph Lauren gown complete with cap sleeves, a flattering high neck, and a dramatic cutout in the back. And wherever she walked, a gorgeous and immensely long veil trailed behind her, floating in the wind.
