The pair announced their engagement in April after having rekindled their romance last year. As Lopez put it in her wedding newsletter, "It turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient."

"Stick around long enough and maybe you'll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through, with your kids and the one you'll spend forever with," the Marry Me actress added. "Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things — and worth waiting for."
