Ben Affleck gets married in Las Vegas
Ben and Jennifer chose 'A Little White Wedding Chapel' in Las Vegas for their nuptials on 16th July 2022. The ceremony happened just before they closed. The chapel is well known with celebrity weddings having wed Paul Newman, Mia Farrow, Frank Sinatra and Britney Spears to name a few. For this ceremony according to Jennifer's newsletter 'On The JLo' she wrote:
“So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives”
The jacket from 'Ben's closet' she mentioned happened to be a 2 button white dinner jacket. Which he wore with black trousers, a black bow tie and finished it off with a white rose attached to his peak lapel.
Due to this ceremony being a top secret event with just Ben and Jennifer plus their children there aren't any official wedding photo's to mark the occasion. Although Ben Affleck did post a selfie, in the toilets where he changed into his wedding suit.
