Jennifer Lopez shares details and photos of the wedding in Georgia

Jennifer Lopez is ready to tell all (she wants to anyway) about her three-day wedding in Georgia to Ben Affleck. The singer sent out a new On the JLo newsletter, featuring select photos of her and Affleck from the ceremony and details on all the festivities from ceremony to reception to day-after brunch.

She wrote that Affleck used the line, “This is heaven. Here. We’re in it now,” during his wedding address and that despite rain and some unexpected incidents during the celebration, Lopez believed their official wedding would be perfect for family and friends. would be.

“The truth is, I’ve never had any doubts,” she wrote. “All week I felt the calm and easy assurance that we were in God’s hands…”

The skies cleared just in time for the ceremony, “and at last I started walking down the stairs that would become the aisle that would lead me for the rest of my life. Ahhhh…it really happened…” Lopez recalled.

“Ben and I talked about Marc Cohn’s ‘True Companion’ over twenty years ago as the perfect love song for a wedding in this house,” she continued. “Although Ben didn’t know, I asked Marc to surprise him by singing it at our wedding and he was sweet and generous to come. However, when I walked down the aisle, the first song he played wasn’t “True Companion.” It was his “The Things We’ve Handed Down” – a song about the wonderful mystery of children – something we could only guess about at the time, but it was the perfect choice because our five children led the way. The twenty years between those dreams of childhood and the adult world of love and family we embraced that day brought more to this marriage than we could have ever imagined. We didn’t just marry each other; we married these children into a new family. They were the only people we asked to stand up for us at our wedding party. To our great honor and joy, everyone did.”

“When the oldest of our children finished her walk, Marc started with ‘True Companion’, a song we listened to for the first time together which seemed like yesterday as well as forever – and life came, strange, beautiful, mysterious , divinely round,” Lopez reflected.

“Later Ben told me that the chords of the song and the sight of Marc Cohn both shocked him and made him feel how both paths we had walked found their way, inevitable, inexorable and perfectly together,” she continued. “And when he saw me appear at the top of the stairs at that moment, it both made perfect sense, while still seemed impossible to believe, like the best dream, where you only want to never wake up. I probably would have had a lot of the same thoughts if I hadn’t focused so hard not to trip over my dress, but when I got close enough to see his face, it was the same great feeling for me. Some old wounds were healed that day and the burden of the past was finally lifted off our shoulders. Full circle – and not at all as we had planned. Better.”

Lopez teased that she would send decor details in future emails (she designed it and “the vibe was down-home, rustic, country-chic”). Photos shared in her email showed fireworks at the reception and different styles of table decoration, from all white and green for the wedding to different shades of pink for the rehearsal dinner.
