She continued: ‘I would have had many of the same thoughts probably had I not been focusing so hard on not tripping over my dress, but when I got close enough to see his face, it made the same wonderful sense to me.’ 

‘Some old wounds were healed that day and the weight of the past finally lifted off our shoulders. Full-circle — and not at all the way we planned it. Better,’ the Let’s Get Loud hitmaker gushed. 

The blushing bride opted to describe their wedding reception by sharing a quote written by Affleck for his 2016 movie Live By Night, which read: ‘This is heaven. Right Here. We’re in it now.’

Ahead of the ceremony, Lopez revealed that ‘it had rained at sunset every day that week’ and everyone was getting worried about the heat, likelihood of thunder and lighting’ and if they would recuperate in time from the stomach bug ‘all’ of their family caught that week.

Despite others concerns with the ‘unexpected setbacks,’ Lopez insisted she ‘never had one doubt.’ 

‘All week I felt the calm and easy certainty that we were in God’s hands,’ she raved. ‘At six forty-five, Saturday, August twentieth, the sun broke free and cast its rays like little diamonds dancing across the river behind the makeshift altar in our backyard.’

Before their rehearsal dinner, the JLo Beauty founder admitted that she and Ben had a laugh ‘the night before about getting married again’ at their age.

‘We had both been married before and we aren’t exactly kids any more but somehow now seemed like the only age that made sense,’ she explained.

She went on to tell readers that she was inspired by Rainer Marie Rilke’s poem, Letters to a Young Poet, which is about being ready for love and how ‘giving happiness and love becomes more joyful than receiving it.’

‘The truth is everyone’s story is different and we all have our paths to travel. No two people are the same. But for us, this was perfect timing.’ Lopez added, nodding to their after rekindling in April 2021 nearly 20 years after parting ways after their first engagement. 

The Hustlers actress continued: ‘Nothing ever felt more right to me, and I knew we were finally settling down in a way you can only do when you understand loss and joy and you are battle tested enough to never take the important things for granted or let the silly insignificant nuisances of the day get in the way of embracing every precious moment.’ 

‘We find ourselves in that long-desired time of life: having gratitude for all that life has shown us, even its trials and tribulations. That night really was heaven,’ she marveled.

The morning after saying ‘I do,’ the pair hosted a ‘yummy brunch by the lake.’ 

For the meal, which she wanted to have ‘down-home, rustic country-chic’ vibes, Lopez wore a blue and white striped dress and floppy hat. 

‘Years ago, we had no idea the road ahead would mean navigating so many labyrinths and hold so many surprises, blessings, and delights,’ she concluded. ‘It all culminated in this moment, one of the most perfect of our lives. We couldn’t have been happier. I wish all of you the same kind of happiness…the hard-earned kind that’s all the sweeter for the journey that came before it.’
