The minister who married Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in Las Vegas is sharing sweet details about their relationship and low-key ceremony.
Ryan Wolfe, the lead pastor at Grace Christian Center of Las Vegas, was wrapping up a day of weddings at A Little White Wedding Chapel this past Saturday night, when Lopez and Affleck walked in.
“We were locking up everything, and they get out and we were like, ‘Okay, well I guess we can do one more,'” Wolfe told People. “So they walked in, and I know Jennifer Lopez, of course. But you don’t expect to see Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez walking through the door every day.”
Wolfe said he didn’t recognize the pair at first, but once he did, he tried his best to not make them “feel uncomfortable” by being “so nervous and so starstruck.” The minister walked both stars to spaces where they could change into their wedding looks—Affleck a tux and Lopez an off-the-shoulder stunner (she also wore that infamous white “dress from an old movie” for part of the celebrations).

Wolfe said Lopez and Affleck “wanted just a regular wedding,” and the Marry Me star “walked down the aisle to the regular ‘Here Comes the Bride’ processional, and she had flowers and he had a boutonnière on.”
The couple had “their own vows that they wanted to share with one another” during the surprise nuptials, and they were “beautiful words,” Wolfe said.
“It was an emotional moment they shared with one another,” he added. “You can definitely see the love that they have for each other.”
After they said their vows, the minister prayed over them “very quick,” and then they exchanged rings. “It was a beautiful wedding,” he said.

Wolfe revealed that the only people in attendance were one of Lopez’s kids and one of Affleck’s kids, and during the ceremony, they both seemed “thrilled.”
“At the end of the ceremony, they were almost giddy excited, jumping around,” he said. “You could tell [the two kids] also were close, had a good relationship, really liked each other. They were very excited and you could tell they really were happy.”
The stars’ kids also helped with the wedding photography. Wolfe said they took photos during the wedding and he “set up Ben’s phone there in the chapel and they videoed the ceremony,” as “there was no professional photographer.”

The wedding wrapped up after midnight.
“I won’t say it was a long ceremony, but it was more lengthy than what our normal ceremonies at the chapel are,” Wolfe said. “And then, of course, they took tons of pictures after in [Elvis Presley’s] pink Cadillac and in the chapel, but just with their phones. They were very thrilled with the ceremony, and they complimented and loved everything about it.”
Lopez confirmed the news of her and Affleck’s wedding in her newsletter, On the JLo, as well as on her Instagram, where she shared a photo of her in bed, wearing her wedding band.
Wolfe said that after meeting the pair, he certainly believes they are “soulmates.”
“I 100 percent believe that they will last,” he said. “They will make it. I really do believe they’re meant for each other.”
