The lovebirds significantly upped the ante the second time around, holding a blow-out, star-studded ceremony at Affleck’s enormous Georgia home.
The three-day celebrations kicked off on Friday (19 August) at the Gone Girl actor’s 87-acre riverfront estate, and JLo looked magnificent in a custom-made Ralph Lauren dress complete with billowing train.
According to the New York Post, the bash was attended by most of the couple’s friends and family and officiated by Jay Shetty, a celebrity life coach.
Antics kicked off with a welcome dinner on Friday and are set to close with a barbecued picnic on Sunday (21 August).
The colour scheme for the event appeared to be white, with aerial photos of JLo and Affleck’s wedding showing everyone in attendance, including themselves, dressed in the colour.
On Saturday afternoon, some guests were seen arriving in Old Savannah Tour trolley buses, while others pulled up in black SUVs.
Guards were seen taking what appeared to be wedding invites from guests before allowing them access to the event.
An outdoor seating area was decorated with cascading flowers and the space - which had a white floor - also contained a white piano.
Lopez and Affleck were followed down the aisle by their children, who helped carry Lopez’s flowing dress, and the newlyweds could barely keep their hands off each other throughout.
Last month, Lopez announced she and Affleck had wed in Vegas in her On the JLo newsletter, telling fans how they had flown to ‘the wedding capital of the world’ and ‘stood in line for a licence’ with four other couples.
Soon after their exchange of vows in Vegas, chapel worker Kenosha Portis gave an insight into the ceremony when speaking on Good Morning America, sharing that the pair were in tears as they became husband and wife.
Explaining that the A-listers had turned up at the chapel shortly before it closed, Portis said: “They were very sweet and they both were emotional, they cried to each other.
“The kids were right there behind them. She had on a nice elegant beige lacy-type dress. It had a train on it.
“The veil was beautiful, everything was very sleek and beautiful. She was stunning.”
Lopez and Affleck first dated back in 2002 and announced their engagement that year, but ended up splitting just two years later. They rekindled their love last year.
