Jennifer Lopez has revealed more details about her recent marriage to Ben Affleck, describing the occasion as “one of the most perfect nights of our lives.”
The pop megastar said at the event, which took place in Savannah, Georgia, that “wounds have been healed” and that she and Affleck “couldn’t be happier.”
The Hollywood stars were previously engaged in November 2002 and were due to tie the knot in September 2003 before the wedding was postponed.
They finally called off their engagement in January 2004.
Lopez wrote a play-by-play report of the day in her fan newsletter On The JLo, including details from the ceremony, the rehearsal dinner, the reception and the morning after.
“The truth is that everyone’s story is different and we all have to find our own ways,” she wrote.
“No two people are the same. But for us it was the perfect timing.
“Nothing has ever felt more right to me, and I knew we were finally “settling down” in a way that only one can do when you understand loss and joy and are battle-hardened enough never to take the important things for granted.” Looking at or allowing the silly insignificant nuisances of the day prevent you from enjoying every precious moment.
“We are in that long-awaited time of life: to have gratitude for everything life has shown us, even its trials and tribulations.

“That night was truly heavenly.”
She added: “Some old wounds were healed that day and the weight of the past was finally lifted from our shoulders.
“It’s coming full circle, and not at all in the way we had planned. Better.
“Years ago we had no idea that the path ahead would mean navigating so many mazes and holding so many surprises, blessings and joys.
“Everything culminated in that moment, one of the most perfect of our lives. We couldn’t have been happier.”
Lopez previously offered fans a “first look” at her wedding looks, sharing a selection of snaps and sketches of her three Ralph Lauren dresses, also via On The JLo.
