One of the most talked about celebrity couples of both this year and two decades prior has been Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. The two have had quite the ride over the last 20 years including a breakup that would see them marrying different people, only to reunite all these years later and come out married after a little over a year of reigniting that spark. Determined to make her wedding to Affleck a stand-out ceremony, the “Waiting For Tonight” singer donned a custom Ralph Lauren dress complete with a stunning veil. And, recently, the Selena star took to her Instagram to share a look at exactly that.

In a photo captioned, “First peek at my wedding looks at”, the image, which you can see below, reveals a gorgeous up close and personal shot of the multi-hyphenated performer. With a full face of makeup that puts her beautiful eyes on display, Jennifer Lopez stuns in the piece of wedding fashion. Pulled together by a set of matching earrings, followers can see the very top of the dress as well as it comes up over the entertainer’s neck.

To better understand how exciting this moment must have been for the couple, let’s hop in a time machine and shoot back to the incredible year that was 2001. A year synonymous with one of the biggest tragedies in American history also brought a lighter side with the release of the beloved film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and the drop of Alicia Keys’ power ballad crusher “Fallin’”. But behind the scenes of the box office flop that was Gigli, a romance was budding between its stars, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. 

Less than one year later, Jennifer Lopez was divorced from her ex-husband Cris Judd and engaged to Ben Affleck and the media was eating it up. Given the couple name “Bennifer” it was impossible to escape any stories surrounding the Hollywood It couple. But, tragedy struck in 2003 when the duo decided to put an end to their wedding plans, leaving fans in the lurch on what tore them apart. Years later, the two would shed some light on why the union didn’t work out, blaming much of it on the relentless coverage by the press. 

The two would go their separate ways, both finding a different person to love between the years of 2002 and 2001. For Ben Affleck, he met his future wife in Jennifer Garner with the two tying the knot in 2005 and bringing three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, into the world before divorcing in 2018. As for Jennifer Lopez, she would go on to marry fellow pop star Marc Anthony in 2004, a relationship that would end in 2014 but bring about their children: Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximillian David Muñiz. 

Following her relationship with Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez would date baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez with whom her breakup would lead to speculations surrounding the reunion of her and Affleck. By May of 2021, Lopez and Affleck were beginning to be spotted together by the press, something that quickly sparked rumors of the two reuniting. In the early summer, they announced that they were officially back on, something that made all those nostalgic memories of days long gone come rushing back to those of us who remember the early days of the couple. 

Since tying the knot during a Las Vegas ceremony over the summer, Bennifer hasn’t left the public eye. From interviews to Instagram posts, the couple has kept us abreast with their movements, grasping onto the love thought long lost in the past. With Jennifer Lopez’s newest wedding look, we can expect even more where that came from in the approaching days.
