Their love story, a rollercoaster of highs and lows, has been nothing short of a Hollywood fairytale.

This statement, bold and heartfelt, perfectly encapsulates the journey of Bennifer, from their first engagement to their grand wedding celebration.
Their wedding, attended by A-list celebrities including Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso, was a testament to the couple's lasting impact on Hollywood. Guests adorned in white, echoing the wedding's extravagant light-hued decorations and floral arrangements, created a scene straight out of a romantic movie.
The picturesque setting of Affleck's Georgia estate served as the perfect backdrop for this much-anticipated event. "We did it. Love is patient. Twenty years patient," Lopez shared in her newsletter, highlighting the endurance of their love through the passage of time.
