Ben Affleck expressed his love for Jennifer Lopez in a 12-page speech throughout their August marriage ceremony day; here is the complete scene of their marriage day and past.
Kevin Smith revealed Ben Affleck’s love for Jennifer Lopez in a 12-page speech during their August wedding day.
“He is one of my favorite writers of the world,” the “Clerks” producer noted during a guest appearance on Tuesday’s episode of “The View.” “He wrote his vows. They [both] wrote their bond, but he wrote such a big speech that he read to her at the wedding, which was breathtaking.”
Smith (52 years old) detailed that one of his favorite things about the “Batman” actor is that “he’s his own biggest fan, so he wrote like a 12-page speech.”
He said that he was happy for them. They deserve it, revealing that he was “weeping” throughout the day.
“Even an unfeeling robot would step away from that day like, ‘Oh my god, true love can happen!'” Smith said. “It was a real fairy-tale ending. And [Jennifer Lopez] has sinless taste, the whole place looked amazing. [Lopez] looked fantastic. They all looked fantastic.”
Smith and Affleck have had to develop a strong friendship after working together in various films throughout the years, including the popular comedy flicks “Clerks II,” “Dogma,” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.”
Bennifer 2.0, who rekindled their Hollywood romance 20 years after their initial relationship, tied the knot at Affleck’s $8 million Georgia mansion on Aug. 20, a month after eloping in Las Vegas.
In a Sept. 1 edition of Lopez’s news corner, “On The JLo,” she shared she stepped down the aisle to Marc Cohn’s “True Companion,” which she and her batter half (who is 50 years old) had chosen out as “the perfect wedding song” when they were engaged 20+ years before.
The singer also said their kids from previous marriages walked down the aisle to “The Things We’ve Handed Down.”
“The 20 years of those dreams of youth and the adult world of love and loved ones they embraced that day, brought more to this marriage than either if them ever could have thought,” Lopez said with an emotional voice.
“We weren’t only married one another; we were marrying these kids into a new fam. They were the only person we asked to stand by us at our time. To our amazing honor and joy, they all did.”
However, not all of the Saturdays and Sundays went off absolutely. Lopez shared that “all of them” caught a stomach bug in the days leading up to the celebration.
Still, she reflected, “The truth is, she never had one doubt. She felt the calm and easy certainty that we were in God’s hands all week.”

Affleck and JLo firstly met in 2002 as co-stars on the set of the 2003 thriller-slash-romcom snap “Gigli.”
While the then-engaged duo thought to get tied to marriage in 2003, they delayed their wedding due to “excessive media show off.” But, after that, the couple publicly announced their breakup in January 2004.
Shortly after that, Lopez wed Marc Anthony in 2004, while Affleck said “I do” to Jennifer Garner in 2005.
Lopez and her husband welcomed twins Emme and Maximilian in 2008. Meanwhile, Garner and Affleck had three kids of their own, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. Lopez and Affleck divorced in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
After her split from Alex Rodriguez in 2021, sources told Page Six that Bennifer could be making a comeback, with Affleck seen coming and going from Lopez’s home on multiple occasions. By April 2022, the two had become engaged once again.
