Tears were flowing at the intimate weekend nuptials of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. In an interview on Good Morning America that aired Tuesday, July 19, A Little White Wedding Chapel employee Kenosha Booth Portis, who was working when the pair got married at the Las Vegas venue on Saturday, July 16, recalled the "exciting moment" when Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, walked in.

"We were getting ready to close and we had a special guest arrive as a walk-in," she said. "I started shaking a little bit. I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, this is Jennifer Lopez we're getting ready to marry!'" As Affleck and Lopez "were reading each other's vows, they were very sweet," Booth Portis remembered. "They both were emotional. They cried to each other. The kids were right there behind them," she added. Good Morning America also posted the video of the interview on Twitter.

"She had on a nice, elegant, beige, lacy type dress. It had a train on it. The veil was beautiful. Everything was very sleek and beautiful. She was stunning," Booth Portis said. "She had a beautiful bouquet, white bouquet, that she had, and he had a boutonniere as well that matches that". Booth Portis told People that the song they played was the traditional "Here Comes the Bride" procession — and Booth Portis was shocked when the pair came in, not believing it was actually Affleck and Lopez until they gave the paperwork to her.

Very few people attended the A-list nuptials. Among them was Jennifer's 14-year-old Emme and one of Ben's three children. Chris Appleton, who did JLo's hair for the occasion, was also one of the witnesses. "They wanted it to be very simple," a chapel source told People. "They were very excited".

The couple also won't be going on their honeymoon right away due to their busy workloads but JLo isn't letting this bring her down. A source told People, "Jennifer says that every day with Ben is a honeymoon." "Ever since they started dating again, Jennifer has truly believed that this is it. They will, however, be throwing a large reception down the line," an insider says. "They plan on having a bigger party so they can celebrate with family and friends." Jennifer and Ben rekindled their romance last year, after previously getting engaged in 2003.

The 'Selena' actress confirmed they tied the knot in Vegas in her newsletter on Sunday, July 17. The chart-topping star also signed the letter using the name 'Jennifer Lynn Affleck.' She wrote "Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world. We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed)."
