Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez tied the knot for the second time this weekend in a lavish three-day celebration at the actor’s 87-acre estate in Riceboro, Georgia, and Fox News Digital has the exclusive details on the couple’s marriage.
A source shared with Fox News Digital that the couple’s nuptials were attended by 135 guests, including Affleck’s best friend and “Good Will Hunting” co-star Matt Damon.
Damon’s wife Luciana, Jimmy Kimmel, “Jay and Silent Bob” stars Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, and talent agent Patrick Whitesell were also all in attendance.
The insider revealed that attendees left with straw gift bags bearing the monogram of the newlyweds’ initials “JB.” The source described the contents of the bags as “a taste of Georgia”.
Social media users appeared to get a glimpse of the gift bags on Monday after fashion stylist Rob Zangardi shared a snapshot of them on his Instagram. In his photo carousel, he also included a group shot of Lopez’s glam squad, which includes hairstylist Chris Appleton, nail artist Tom Bachik, makeup artist Mary Phillips and stylist Mariel Haenn.
Zangardi’s post also included a photo showing several white heels from Lopez’s shoe line, JLO. It’s unclear if these were the ones Lopez rocked over her wedding weekend.
Meanwhile, another source told Fox News Digital that a “collection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails” was provided by high-end beverage caterer Icebox. The Charleston, SC-based company produces luxury beverage programs nationwide.
