Jennifer Lopez is leaning into more cozy California style since returning from her high-fashion multi-week European vacation. Yesterday, Lopez was photographed in a rainbow tie-dye sweat set, accessorizing with a green bag, red sunglasses, large hoop earrings and white sneakers. The singer was en route into a Los Angeles dance studio.
Lopez spent the last couple weeks in Paris, where she and her new husband Ben Affleck had a mini honeymoon with their families, and then Capri, Italy, where Lopez was on her own but took part in a photo shoot and performed at UNICEF’s benefit concert there.
Lopez hasn’t shared details about her European trip personally yet, but she did write about her Las Vegas wedding on her On the JLo newsletter.
Of the ceremony itself, she wrote, “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.”
“Exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world,” she continued. “Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday—all of us wanting the same thing— for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage.”
“We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight,” she added. “They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed).”
“So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” she finished. “They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last.”
