Jennifer Lopez Shares Stunning Photos From Her Wedding to Ben Affleck
This Thursday, Lopez shared in her newslett a play-by-play of the day from the moment she walked down the “aisle that would lead me toward the rest of my life.”
“When he saw me appear at the top of the stairs that moment it both made absolute sense while seeming still impossibly hard to believe, like the best dream, where all you want is never to awaken,” she wrote.
“I would have had many of the same thoughts probably had I not been focusing so hard on not tripping over my dress, but when I got close enough to see his face, it made the same wonderful sense to me.”
Added Lopez, “Some old wounds were healed that day and the weight of the past finally lifted off our shoulders. Full-circle — and not at all the way we planned it. Better.”
Lopez shared a quote from Affleck’s 2016 movie Live By Night that resonated with her — and that he included in a speech at their reception:
“This is heaven. Right Here. We’re in it now.” She explained, “That is one of my favorite lines that Ben wrote from a movie he directed called Live By Night. He also said it the night of our wedding reception in his speech, and I thought…how perfect.”
She added, “The truth is everyone’s story is different and we all have our paths to travel. No two people are the same. But for us, this was perfect timing. Nothing ever felt more right to me, and I knew we were finally ‘settling down’ in a way you can only do when you understand loss and joy and you are battle tested enough to never take the important things for granted or let the silly insignificant nuisances of the day get in the way of embracing every precious moment.”
“We find ourselves in that long-desired time of life: having gratitude for all that life has shown us, even its trials and tribulations. That night really was heaven,” she wrote.
Lopez said they “couldn’t have been happier.”
