They did it! It’s been a long time coming but Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, excuse me Jennifer Affleck, have tied the knot. Jen has been sharing intimate details about the wedding which took place at the Little White Chapel just before midnight on Saturday, July 16. Jennifer wrote on her newsletter: “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient….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,” Jen adds “We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed.”  “We read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” Lopez continued. “They even had a Bluetooth for the (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 very real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very, long last.” Jen added that she’s intending to take Ben’s last name, which is stated on the marriage license. She even signed the newsletter “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.”
