Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck to host grand wedding party at actor's $7M mansion in Georgia
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tied the knot in Las Vegas over the weekend. On Sunday, July 17, the singer, 52, revealed in her On the JLo newsletter, "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," adding that the ceremony was "exactly what we wanted." But it has now been revealed that the surprise nuptials won’t be the only celebration of their love.
A source tells People they "plan on having a bigger party so they can celebrate with family and friends.” TMZ insiders say the couple is planning to have the party at Ben's home in the coastal town of Riceboro, Georgia, which is just outside of Savannah. Apparently, JLo recently visited the property to do some party planning, and Ben might have been there as well. As far as a honeymoon goes, the People insider revealed, "They don't have a honeymoon planned yet. Jennifer says that every day with Ben is a honeymoon.” Meanwhile, there's no information as to when Bennifer's second wedding will take place.

The two-story mansion has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. There are also two other smaller properties on the grounds with additional bedrooms. Ben purchased the home in 2003 when he was still with Jennifer, paying just over $7 million. The Oscar-winning star listed the property in 2019 for almost $ 9 million, but there appeared to have been no takers.
