Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck want to celebrate with their loved ones after tying the knot in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas over the weekend, according to a report.
An anonymous source told the New York Post’s Page Six that the newlyweds plan to hold a huge multi-day party for their close pals and family members. The bash could double as a birthday party for Lopez, who will turn 53 on Sunday, the outlet suggested.
The couple hope to hold the celebration within the next two weeks for “everyone they love but could not invite” to their small and low-key Las Vegas wedding. Affleck’s daughter Seraphina, 13, and Lopez’s child Emme, 14, were reportedly the only ones in attendance during the Saturday ceremony.
The celebration could be a two- or three-day affair, according to the source.
A number of celebrities have reportedly been invited to the event, including Affleck’s brother Casey Affleck, his best friend Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel and Lopez’s “Shades of Blue” co-star Drea de Matteo.
Unnamed sources told TMZ that the big private party will take place in the next few days at Affleck’s 87-acre property in Riceboro, Georgia. Lopez visited the home a few weeks ago with her manager to plan the party, according to the sources.
Affleck’s property, located about an hour outside Savannah, is spacious enough to accommodate their guests. The main house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and 6,000 square feet of living space.
There could also be a party on St. Simons Island, Georgia, which has beaches, wellness retreats and a picturesque lighthouse, according to Page Six’s source.
Lopez shared some details and photos from her wedding to Affleck via her On the JLo newsletter Sunday.
According to the singer, they “barely made it” to Las Vegas’ A Little White Wedding Chapel by midnight, but the venue “graciously stayed open late a few minutes” to accommodate them.
“When love is real, the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving and good to one another. We had that. And so much more. Best night of our lives,” she wrote.
But though fans were surprised by their wedding, their nuptials were “not completely unplanned,” an unnamed source told People. Affleck and Lopez reportedly discussed the idea of eloping “for a while” because they didn’t want their wedding to be a “spectacle.”
“The Las Vegas ceremony was perfect. They both loved it. It was private and low-key. That’s all they asked for,” the insider added.
