Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck cried while sharing “profound” promises on their big day.

Kenosha Portis, a representative at Las Vegas’ A Little White Wedding Chapel where the love birds sealed the deal, addressed “Great Morning America” co-has on Tuesday about the pre-marriage ceremony.

“It was so energizing,” she spouted of the Sunday service. “That is to say, we were preparing to close and we had an extraordinary visitor show up as a stroll in.

“I began shaking a smidgen,” Portis proceeded. “Like, ‘This is Jennifer Lopez we are preparing to wed!'”

The Nevada occupant considered how “sweet” and “close to home” the couple were at the special raised area while perusing their promises.

“They cried to each other,” she explained, noting that “their kids were right behind them.”

Affleck, 49, is a father of three, sharing Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. Lopez, for her part, coparents twins Emme and Maximilian, 14, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

A source told Page Six on Monday that Emme and Seraphina were the only children attendance, adding that the ceremony was

“very minimally planned” and “spur-of-the-moment.”

However, we’re told the couple is planning a bigger celebration in the coming weeks. It’s reportedly set to be held at Affleck’s 87-acre property in Riceboro, Ga.

The “Gigli” co-stars first began dating in 2002. While Affleck proposed to Lopez that same year, the couple ended their engagement in 2004.

The “Gigli” costars both “cried” during their “emotional” vows, Portis recalled.

Lopez reconnected with Affleck in 2021 following her split from Alex Rodriguez.

The dancer told her “On the JLo” newsletter readers in April of the following year that Affleck had popped the question for the second time. The proposal took place while she was in the bathtub.

“[I] just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again,”

Lopez recalled.

“I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘Is that a yes?’ I said ‘YES of course that’s a YES.’”

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,”

the New York native gushed.

“It was the best possible wedding we could have imagined.”
