Actress/Singer Jennifer Lopez serenaded her husband actor Ben Affleck during their lavish, elegant Georgian wedding with a passionate new song dedicated to him before they jetted off to honeymoon in Italy.
Lopez, 53, performed on the dance floor in her stunning Ralph Lauren wedding gown adorned with strings of pearls as Affleck, 50, sat in a chair in front of her. She made her appearance with backup dancers while singing the song replete with affectionate lyrics such as “I can’t get enough,” which was repeated in the chorus of the love song in a video provided by TMZ.
Thirty artisans reportedly spent 700 hours hand-embroidering the dress she wore with micro-pleats of silk tulle, tiny pearl embellishments, and Swarovski crystals.
“I can feel the passion in your eyes/ I’m still in love with you/ You know I can’t get enough/ You know I can’t get enough,” JLO sang.

Affleck seemed to enjoy the attention and it was obvious he adored the singer even more as he smiled at his new bride.
Lopez even tried to get him to sing along.

Following the performance, the two newlyweds held each other in the middle of the dance floor, gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes.
Lopez previously wrote another song to her love called “Dear Ben” which was featured on her 2002 album “This Is Me… Then.”
It featured lyrics such as, “You’re perfect/ I just can’t control myself/ I can’t be with no one else/ Seems I’m addicted to the way you like to touch me.”
And, “I love you, you’re perfect/ A manifestation of my dreams” as well as, “I think God made you for me.”
Affleck starred in one of her music videos called “Jenny from the Block” in 2002. In the video, he infamously slapped her pink bikini-clad behind as they lounged on a yacht.
The wedding was a star-studded affair with family and friends in attendance. That included their children from Lopez’s third husband Marc Anthony, as well as Affleck’s first wife Jennifer Garner.

Both of their mothers, Guadalupe and Chris, JLO’s sister Lynda, and Affleck’s best friends actor Matt Damon and director Kevin Smith were there. Affleck’s brother Casey, 47, declined to attend claiming he had prior family commitments in Los Angeles.
Smith told Yahoo Entertainment this week the ceremony was “one of the most profoundly beautiful f***ing moments of my life, and it didn’t even happen to me.”
The nuptials were held at Affleck’s $8.9 million Georgia mansion, an 87-acre compound on Hampton Island Preserve.
The “old Hollywood-themed” wedding had 135 guests and lasted 45 minutes. It was officiated by Jay Shetty.
The wedding dinner was served in the barn with the cuisine served up by chef Bruce Moffett and Cru Catering, according to Vogue.
There were fireworks afterward that reflected in the lake.

Prior to the formal wedding in Georgia, the couple eloped to Las Vegas on July 17 and took their kids to Paris for their first honeymoon. The marriage comes 20 years after their first engagement was called off in the fall of 2003 due to excessive media attention.
The honeymoon in Italy saw the two dressed to the nines and not being able to get enough of one another. They visited Lake Como and Milan with a security team in tow.
