A worker at the chapel where Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck wed said they “cried” exchanging vows.
Kenosha Portis described Lopez’s Zuhair Murad wedding dress as “stunning.”
She described the vow exchange as “very, very sweet.”
An employee at the Las Vegas chapel where Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got married over the weekend said the actors “cried” while exchanging “emotional” wedding vows.
Kenosha Portis told “Good Morning America” that she and her coworkers were preparing to close A Little White Wedding Chapel on Sunday when the special guests arrived.
“I started shaking a little bit, you know? I’m like ‘Oh my god, this is Jennifer Lopez,”” Portis said.
“As they were reading each other vows they were very sweet,” she said. “They both were emotional, they cried to each other,” she continued, noting that Lopez looked “stunning” in the simple Zuhair Murad wedding dress that Harper’s Bazaar reported she wore.
Portis told People that it “was beautiful” to watch the couple exchange vows and “some tears were shed by them both.” People reported that Lopez’s child Emme, 14 witnessed the ceremony, but did not mention their twin brother Max, whose father is Lopez’s ex Marc Anthony. Only one of Affleck’s children with ex Jennifer Garner reportedly attended, though it’s not clear if it was Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, or Samuel, 10.
Lopez previously shared details of her wedding ceremony in her newsletter “On The JLo” corroborating Portis’s account that the chapel stayed open for the lovebirds, but could not deliver Elvis because the king of rock and roll was “in bed.”
The “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” singer said her wedding to Affleck was “one we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last.”
“Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” Lopez continued in her “On The J.Lo” announcement.
Affleck and Lopez began a whirlwind relationship in 2002 after meeting on the set of their movie “Gigli.” They got engaged in November of that year but later called off their wedding and officially ended their relationship in January 20o4. Their romance rekindled in spring 2021.
