Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially tied the knot.
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient, 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, She wrote on her website.
The nuptials come 17 years after they called off their first engagement.
News of the couple getting back together last year sent fans into a spin, as they publicly displayed their rekindled love on social media.

Exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world. Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday—all of us wanting the same thing— for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage.OntheJLo
