Ben Affleck Surprised Jennifer Lopez With His Wedding Speech
Actor Ben Affleck delivered a heart-touching speech on his wedding day. Jennifer Lopez got emotional after Affleck included a line from one of his films in the speech.

“This is heaven. Right here. We’re in it now.”

Jennifer Lopez Reveals That Her Wedding Day was ‘Not Perfect’
On her blog On The JLo, Jennifer Lopez spoke about how her husband Ben Affleck’s speech may have been magical but their wedding day wasn’t as flawless as they expected it to be. From the guests catching stomach bugs to sudden rainfall did affect their mood throughout the day. Even though Lopez and Affleck were having a not-so-perfect wedding, their children brightened up the overall mood. During the ceremony, the couple had their children walk down the aisle and gave them away. JLo wrote,
“It had rained at sunset every day that week.”
“Everyone was worried about the heat, the aptly named ‘love bugs,’ the details, would the guests all arrive on time, etc.—not to mention the thunder and lightning that arrived almost on cue each day at the exact time the ceremony was supposed to start that Saturday.”
“Oh, and all of us caught a stomach bug and were recuperating ‘til late in the week, that, and along with a few other unexpected setbacks, had all the makings of a doozie of a wedding weekend.”
