HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez will marry in house he bought when they were dating in 2003
The wedding venue is of emotional importance to the couple as they spent a lot of time in it together when they were first dating in the early 2000s
RICEBORO, GEORGIA: After having spent three days in lavish celebration in Affleck's Georgia residence, reunited lovebirds Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are all set to tie the knot all over again this weekend at an extravagant property spread over 4000 acres of land. The pair's picturesque wedding venue features three different buildings set to provide the perfect backdrop for an elegant wedding.
The wedding venue, however, holds more than just aesthetic essence. The property is sentimentally valuable to the pair as Ben had purchased the property for them when they started dating back in 2003.
Needless to say, the couple had spent a lot of time together in the home before going their separate ways in 2004. Ben tried to sell the home for $8.9 million back in 2018. When that did not work out, he tried again by lowering the price to $7.6 million in 2019. In 2020, he took the home off the market after he failed to sell it altogether.
While it was listed, Homes and Gardens revealed details of the house which had 557 square meters of living space and a picturesque verandah overlooking the North Newport River on Hampton Island, Georgia. The property is called 'The Big House'.
It also includes a more private 'Summer Cottage' which is located closer to the river and an 'Oyster House'. The Oyster House features three master suites and five bunk beds that have been salvaged from real ships. This space will be ideal for hosting the guests who will be present at the Affleck-Lopez wedding. The incredibly beautiful property also has access to the sea from a private deep-water dock along with equestrian facilities and a vast open space for the family to enjoy a good refreshing leisure hour.
The pair will say 'I do' a second time this weekend after their first marriage, in the presence of family members and friends as well as their children from prior marriages.
