It looks like a Vegas wedding was always on the cards for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. In fact, 20 years ago, during a trip to MTV’s “TRL,” Lopez mentioned a Las Vegas wedding to Carson Daly while she was first engaged to Affleck in 2002.

“How are you going to do a wedding?” Daly asks the pop star. “How will you try – is there an island deserted enough?”

“I don’t know,” Lopez replies.

After Daly suggests the couple use a private plane and get married mid-air, Lopez makes a proposal of his own. “Vegas,” she blurts out, effectively predicting Affleck’s marriage 20 years early.

While Lopez and Affleck tied the knot and held a surprise ceremony in Vegas just this past weekend, their nuptials had been years in the making, and the couple first got engaged in 2002.

Of course, as fans know, the couple never made it down the aisle and eventually split in 2004. The two married and welcomed children — Lopez with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Affleck with ex-wife Jennifer Garner — before they eventually rekindled their romance in 2021, when Lopez shared news of their engagement in April.

Over the weekend, Lopez documented the wedding in the latest update to her J.Lo newsletter.

“We made it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years of patience,” the Marry Me actress said in her post, which features a glimpse of her dress and some BTS photos from the ceremony included.
