Newlyweds Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck 'will 100 per cent last', says wedding minister

·2-min read


Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's wedding minister believes they will "100 per cent last".
The 'Marry Me' star got hitched to the 'Argo' actor - who she rekindled her relationship with back in 2021 after a break of almost 20 years - at a low-key ceremony at Las Vegas' late-night Little White Wedding Chapel at the weekend.
And minister Ryan Wolfe says the pair's love for each other was obvious as they were so "emotional".
He told PEOPLE: "Absolutely, you can see the love they had for each other. They definitely truly care and love each other.
"I've done probably 10,000 weddings now, and by this point in my life I get a feel of couples — I can really tell it was real."
"It was emotional; it was an emotional moment they shared with one another. It was real and evident for sure.
"After seeing them and the love they have for each other, I 100 per cent believe they will last. They will make it. I believe they found their soulmates. I really do believe they're meant for each other."
Jennifer shared details of the nuptials in her On the JLo newsletter, including some pictures and videos of her dress "from an old movie".
In an emotional clip showing off her classic, boat-necked gown, she said: "I've had this dress for so many years, and I've just been saving it, saving it, saving it, and now I'm wearing it on my wedding day."
While at the Little White Wedding Chapel, Jennifer changed into a Zuhair Murad lace off-the-shoulder dress with corset bodice and fishtail train, as well as a matching veil.
The 49-year-old actor - who has Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner - donned a white tuxedo jacket which he hadn't bought especially for the occasion.
Jennifer wrote: "So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben's closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we'll wear for the rest of our lives.
"They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end, it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last."
The 'On The Floor' hitmaker thanked the venue "for letting me use the break room to change while Ben changed in the men's room."
Jennifer - who has 14-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony - has legally changed her name to Jennifer Lynne Affleck.
The power couple are said to be planning a bigger wedding at the 'Deep Water' actor's Georgia home with their closest friends and family.
