Kevin Smith couldn’t help but rave about close pal Ben Affleck’s stunning wedding to Jennifer Lopez, describing it as one of the most beautiful moments of his life.
Bennifer 2.0 said their ‘I dos’ for a second time in Georgia over the weekend, surrounded by a selection of their friends and family.
The Clerks III star was among those lucky enough to get on the guest list, along with long-time friend and collaborator Jason Mewes, and spilled the beans on their magical day.
‘Hands down, [it was] one of the five most beautiful moments I’ve ever experienced in my life, and it had nothing to do with me,’ he said. ‘I was a bystander for it. I know them, and so it makes it warm and wonderful.’
Kevin heaped praise on J Lo’s ‘impeccable taste’ and explained that the entire ceremony was ‘picture perfect,’ making us even more jealous that we didn’t nab an invite.
The acclaimed director also admitted that he became emotional when seeing Chasing Amy co-star Ben, who also had a small cameo in the new Clerks outing, look down the aisle at his bride.
He told People Magazine that the Batman actor had ‘never looked better than he’s looked his entire life’, and that he was: ‘Radiating f**king joy as he looked down the aisle and saw the woman of his dreams coming toward him, and she radiated it right back.
‘I was bawling when I looked up and saw the happiest Ben I’ve ever seen in my life.’
‘The universe made [Ben] wait for this one and man, oh man, was it worth it,’ he added. ‘These kids are in love, man. Deep, f**king crazy love. And that wedding would make even a hardcore cynic believe in romance, believe in love. And they earned it.
‘I thank the Lord I went because I got to witness something that I’ll never forget, and it wasn’t even my wedding. It’s the kind of wedding that makes you love your wife even more.’
Well, it looks like we all missed out on something truly iconic, but luckily for us, Jennifer is a generous queen and shared photos of her three wedding dresses with fans.
Giving us all a glimpse into her nuptials on her newsletter, On The JLo, the Love Don’t Cost A Thing singer penned: ‘The dresses were dreamy… thank you Ralph Lauren.’
She also teased that more images would be released soon.
Ben and Jen famously rekindled their romance last year and got engaged in April.
They then threw us all for a loop when they announced their surprise Las Vegas wedding last month.
‘We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,’ the Hustlers actress said at the time. ‘Exactly what we wanted.
‘Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a licence with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world. 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.’
