the previous year, before the wedding was called off at the last moment. J.Lo

Marc said the suite was so beautiful that it deserved its own zip code – he thought it was perfect. We hope he remembered to compliment his bride too! Jennifer chose a black dress and just 12 people witnessed the ceremony. Even her parents missed it, as they were on babyminder duties!
The vows were exchanged after a private dinner and some time spent in a casino!
