J-Lo and Ben Afflecks officially tied the knot in a secret Vegas wedding last month and now they’ve said ‘I do’ in front of their friends and family, but there is one detail that many people have picked up on online, and they are not letting it slide.
Arriving by boat the couple greeted friends and family on a dock, nearby Ben’s home in Savannah, Georgia.
It was a beautiful white-themed ceremony with the exception of Ben’s black pants but we can just ignore that one.
Their children participated in the ceremony while guests Matt Damon, Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, and major talent agent Patrick Whitesell watched the two tie the knot.
A wedding attendee told E! News: “The ceremony lasted 20 minutes, and was officiated by life coach Jay Shetty.”
"At the end of the ceremony, they posed for family photos on the dock by the water," the source added.
They continued: "It was very romantic and classic. They had an old-fashioned car parked in front of the estate ready to take them away.”
Many fans have shared their message of congratulations online with one wishing the two a “happily ever after”.
Another said the couple “deserve all the happiness”.
However, it wasn’t all blissful for the couple as they faced backlash for their lavish day after it was revealed that the location for their “I do’s” was a plantation replica.
The location is obviously incredibly problematic and offensive, given that throughout the seventeenth and twentieth centuries, People of colour were enslaved and forced to labour on agricultural plantations in the South.
But the fact that the pair had their wedding ceremony on the property which was created in 2000 to resemble a plantation is obviously awful, given that Affleck's ancestors owned slaves.
According to The Guardian, the actor took part in the Finding Your Roots documentary series in 2014, which showed that his great-great-great grandfather Benjamin Cole acquired 24 slaves in 1858.
Of course Ben can't help what his ancestors did, but his choice of venue seems pretty out of touch!
