20 years of love in the making has finally led to tieing the knot

The couple obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada on Saturday, July 16. Lopez confirmed their Vegas wedding in her newsletter Sunday, ending the letter with a new name: Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

"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," Lopez wrote. "We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. 

"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. "In the end, it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined."

The Bennifer love saga is one that has been more than 20 years in the making. 

Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, famously dated in the early 2000s, spawning the nickname "Bennifer," before rekindling their romance last year. They earlier starred together in 2003's Gigli and 2004's Jersey Girl. Around that time, they became engaged but never wed.

Affleck married Jennifer Garner in 2005, with whom he shares three children. They divorced in 2018.

Lopez has been married three times before. She was briefly married to Ojani Noa from 1997-1998 and Cris Judd from 2001-2003. She and singer Marc Anthony were married for a decade after their wedding in 2004 and shared 14-year-old twins together.
