Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck to Have Wedding Celebration in Georgia This Weekend: What to Expect

A source tells ET that the couple's upcoming celebration will include 'close relatives, friends, and loved ones.'

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are set to continue the wedding festivities this weekend. ET has learned that the couple's  wedding celebration, which is being put together by event planner to the stars, Colin Cowie, will be at Affleck's estate in Riceboro, Georgia. Page Six was first to report the couple's weekend plans.

"Ben and Jen are so excited to have their wedding celebration this weekend in Georgia," a source tells ET. "It's a special place for them as a couple and they can't wait to celebrate their love in front of their friends and family. Their loved ones are so happy for them and everyone is looking forward to getting together and celebrating."

The latest celebrations will come a month after Lopez and Affleck tied the knot in Las Vegas. Following their intimate Vegas nuptials, a source told ET that "Jen and Ben are still planning to have a larger celebration soon with family and friends to celebrate their love in a bigger way." 

Another source noted that, for Lopez and Affleck the small wedding "was perfect and a dream come true."

"The marriage in Vegas was very quick, once done they had some pizza and went back to Los Angeles," a third source said. 

The couple "will absolutely be having a bigger wedding ceremony and celebration that includes close relatives, friends, and loved ones," according to the second source.

"The newly married couple has kept their celebrating to a minimum as they plan to have a bigger gathering within the next few weeks," the third source explained. "Both have been married before and wanted to keep the marriage quiet and low-key before they plan to have big celebration in Georgia."

"They have been in wedding planning mode, but also really just enjoying the now, right now," the second source said. "They have both been planning things together, but Jen definitely has her own vision and is leading the wedding planning train."

The second source added that, while the couple's Vegas wedding "was totally planned," it was done so "privately."

"They wanted it to be a moment they shared together and with their kids, and fulfill a fun idea that they shared," the second source said of the five children Lopez and Affleck have between them. Lopez is mom to 14-year-old twins Emme and Max, while Affleck is dad to Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10. The singer shares her kids with Marc Anthony, while the actor shares his with Jennifer Garner

As for how the kids are doing, the second source said that they're "feeling more united as a family since the Vegas wedding and they are all super excited to see what the future holds for all of them," adding that the five children "all get along really well."

According to the second source, the newlyweds "still get along relatively well" with Anthony and Garner, and "share special places in each other's hearts."

"There is no ill will from anyone and the mutual goal and focus is zero drama and to prioritize being great parents to their children," the second source said.

Following the nuptials, Lopez, who has taken her husband's name, was spotted wearing her wedding band in Los Angeles. The recent bride was dressed casually in workout gear as she left a dance studio, proudly wearing her new sparkler on her left ring finger.
