AceShowbiz - After deciding to get spontaneous for their first nuptials in Las Vegas, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck seemingly have everything prepared for their second, bigger wedding. The pair have reportedly picked a wedding officiant ahead of the upcoming three-day celebration.
Per Page Six report, celebrity life coach and big-time podcaster Jay Shetty is expected to officiate the wedding between the A-list couple in Georgia this weekend. It seems that the "On Purpose" podcast host has been close with J.Lo for a couple of years.
The "If You Had My Love" songstress has appeared on Jay's show. She also invited him to officiate four weddings that she orchestrated as part of a PR stunt for her romantic comedy film "Marry Me", also starring Owen Wilson, which was released back in February.
Jay said of accepting the gig at the time, "When Jennifer Lopez asks you to officiate 4 weddings and speak on the power of love during her 'Marry Me' Special Performance you say yes. What an incredible experience it was seeing 4 beautiful couples take their vows and having Jennifer Lopez and Maluma as their wedding singers! Their stories and journeys brought tears to everyone's eyes and I'm so grateful I got to be a part of it."
For Jay, who is a former Hindu monk and Accenture strategist, this won't be the first big celebrity wedding that he's become a part of. The British spiritual star previously officiated the wedding of Lily Collins and director Charlie McDowell in Colorado in September last year.
J.Lo and Ben will reportedly celebrate their marriage with their closed and loved ones at the actor's Riceboro home in Georgia, just outside Savannah. "It's going to be all about J.Lo. Ben wants all of the focus to be on her for their big day," a source told Page Six of the couple's dream wedding celebration.
The three-day event is said to kick off with a rehearsal dinner on Friday, August 19. The actual ceremony will reportedly take place on Saturday and the couple will close out their weekend celebration with a barbecue and picnic on Sunday.
J.Lo is expected to wear a custom couture Ralph Lauren dress made in Italy and Vogue magazine is expected to document her fashion journey for the weekend. It's unclear how many are invited to the wedding, but Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel, Casey Affleck and Drea de Matteo are said to be among the A-listers who made the couple's guest list.
