Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have tied the knot — again! The celebrity couple, affectionately dubbed ‘Bennifer,’ threw a lavish party Saturday in Georgia, and it was packed with special touches.

Affleck’s 87-acre Riceboro estate in Georgia was the backdrop for the highly anticipated formal affair, and the entire guest list arrived dressed for the all-white-themed wedding. Of course, Lopez maintained her over-the-top diva image by showcasing a stunning, custom-designed Ralph Lauren gown featuring a dramatic 20-foot train, capped sleeves and an open back. Their star-studded guest list was treated to an entire weekend full of incredible surprises, including adorable straw gift bag giveaways initialed with “J.B.,” and a private fireworks display, according to People.

Affleck’s black tuxedo pants were the only pop of non-white color, and both Lopez and Affleck included their children from previous marriages in the celebration.

A massive tent was installed on Affleck’s $8 million property, and when the time came for the famous couple to exchange vows, the ceremony was officiated by none other than podcaster and life coach Jay Shetty. The ceremony lasted a full 45 minutes and was packed with sentimental moments, according to People. This was dramatically different from the quick Vegas ceremony they took part in in July.

Lopez and Affleck hosted big names such as Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso, as well as “Clerks” director Kevin Smith and his wife Jennifer. Jason Mewes attended the festivities with his wife Jordan Monsanto, and top Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell and his wife, model Pia Miller, were also part of the festivities.

The majority of the guests reportedly stayed in Savannah, which is about 50 miles from the estate, and were transported by the ferry and Savannah trolley cars as they participated in the perfectly planned events, People noted.

Smith and Mewes captured the photographs of the event, including an epic group photo they posed for with a few of the guests.

The newlyweds graciously invited everyone back to toast to their new lives together by sharing Sunday brunch at the estate Sunday morning.
