    It's always a tricky affair when an ex gets married. But when it's the return of the iconic 'Bennifer,' it's bound to be a media circus. Jennifer Garner, always the picture of grace and elegance, chose tranquility over spectacle in August 2022. Let's stroll down memory lane and recollect the moments that shaped that weekend.

    When Sam's Club became the talk of the town

    While the world's eyes were locked onto the opulence at Ben Affleck's Georgia estate, Jennifer Garner was spotted in her hometown, at the unassuming Sam's Club. As reported by TMZ, she was enjoying a casual outing with her boyfriend, John Miller, and her dad, William Garner. The trio's serene day out seemed a world away from the glitz and glamour of a celebrity wedding.

    But was Jennifer avoiding the wedding? Not at all. A previous report clearly indicated her inability to attend due to prior commitments. An insider spilled, "Jennifer Garner is hard at work on a project in Texas... but she’s been totally supportive of her kids being there and is really positive in general about the whole thing." For Jennifer, the happiness of her children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, was of utmost importance.

While Garner may have missed the wedding, her graceful presence and the importance she plays in Affleck's life were felt throughout the event.

    A tale of two weddings

    Let's not forget, it wasn't just one wedding. A month prior, 'Bennifer 2.0' had a spontaneous Las Vegas wedding. J-Lo shared heartwarming details about their impromptu ceremony, recounting how they stood in line with other couples, all eager to celebrate love. And then, their grand second wedding in Georgia, attended by Hollywood's who's who, was a testament to their enduring love story.

    End note

    As we look back, it’s clear that while the world was swept up in the Bennifer wedding saga, Jennifer Garner stood as a beacon of grace, showing us that sometimes, peace lies away from the spotlight.
