Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck ‘cryed’ amid ’emotional’ vows: Eyewitness

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck cried while sharing “emotional” vows on their wedding day.

Kenosha Portis, an employee of the A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, where the newlyweds tied the knot, spoke to the co-hosts of “Good Morning America” Tuesday about the wedding.

“It was so exciting,” she said of the Sunday ceremony. “I mean, we were getting ready to close and we had a special guest as a walk-in.

“I started to shake a little,” Portis continued. “Like, ‘This is Jennifer Lopez, we’re getting ready to get married!'”

The Nevada native reflected on how “sweet” and “emotional” the couple were at the altar as they read their vows.

“They were crying to each other,” she explained, noting that “their children were right behind them.”

Affleck, 49, is the father of three and shares Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. Lopez, for her part, co-parents twins Emme and Maximilian, 14, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

A source told Vidak For Congress on Monday that Emme and Seraphina were the only children in attendance, adding that the ceremony was “very minimally planned” and “an impulsive moment”.

However, we’re told the couple is planning a bigger celebration in the coming weeks. It will reportedly be held on Affleck’s 87-acre property in Riceboro, Georgia.

The “Gigli” co-stars first began dating in 2002. While Affleck proposed to Lopez that same year, the couple ended their engagement in 2004.

Lopez reconnected with Affleck in 2021 following her split from Alex Rodriguez.

The dancer told her “On the JLo” newsletter readers in April of the following year that Affleck had asked the question a second time. The proposal took place while she was in the bathtub.

“[I] just looked into his eyes as he smiled and cried as he tried hard to understand that this was happening all over again after 20 years,” Lopez recalled. “I was literally speechless and he said, ‘Is that a yes?’ I said ‘YES of course, that’s a YES.’”

On Sunday, the “Maid in Manhattan” star gave her subscribers wedding details, calling the milestone moment “exactly” what she and the actor wanted.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years of patience,” the New Yorker gushed. “It was the best possible wedding we could have imagined.”
