Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck didn’t let a stomach virus ruin their big day

This is what Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck looked like at their wedding in Las Vegas 1:59 (CNN) — Nothing, not thunder, not lightning, not even a stomach virus, was going to spoil Jennifer Lopez’s big day. That’s what the star herself says, who in her latest newsletter opened up about the “unexpected mishaps” that threatened to ruin her wedding to Ben Affleck. “It had rained at sunset every day that week. Everyone was worried about the heat, the ‘love flies’, the details, whether the guests would all arrive on time, etc., not to mention the thunder and lightning.” who arrived almost on time each day at the exact time the ceremony was supposed to start that Saturday,” Lopez wrote. “Oh, and we all got a stomach bug and were on the mend until the end of the week, that, along with a few other unexpected hiccups, had all the ingredients for a rather special wedding weekend.” But, like a page out of one of her romantic comedies, it all worked out. “At 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, August 20, the sun rose and cast its rays like little diamonds dancing on the river behind the makeshift altar in our backyard,” she wrote. “The sky was clear blue, and distant pure white clouds held steady in the sky. As the sun set behind the hay-covered live oak trees, a warm breeze blew across the lawn where our closest family and friends sat. nearby and, finally, I started down the stairs that would become the corridor that would lead me to the rest of my life. This scene, apparently directed by God himself, ended with a “I do” (his hers second hers, technically) and, according to Lopez, a day that went “divinely full circle.” The couple first met in December 2001 on the set of the movie “Gigli,” where they played criminals caught up in a job together, and the pair struck up a real-life friendship. In November 2002, they became engaged, but postponed their wedding in September 2003 citing “excessive media attention” surrounding their wedding. They never made it down the aisle and officially called off their engagement in January 2004.
They romantically reunited almost 17 years later. “Years ago, we had no idea that the path ahead of us was going to involve navigating so many labyrinths and bringing so many surprises, blessings and delights. It all culminated in this moment, one of the most perfect of our lives,” L√≥pez wrote. . “We couldn’t have been happier. I wish you all the same kind of happiness… hard-earned happiness made all the sweeter by the journey that preceded it.” Somebody write this script and give me ten tickets. — Chloe Melas, Lisa Respers France and Amir Vera contributed reporting.
