Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, also known as ‘Bennifer,’ recently celebrated their wedding at Affleck’s $8.9 million Georgia estate. The event took place at the sprawling 87-acre property in Riceboro, Georgia, where Affleck purchased a mansion in 2003. Despite Affleck putting the property up for sale in 2019, it became the setting for the glamorous wedding ceremony with Lopez.

The main attraction of the property is the ‘big house,’ a 6,000-square-foot mansion with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, balconies overlooking the North Newport River, and romantic arched fireplaces. Surrounded by centuries-old live oak trees, the mansion exudes Southern charm with pinewood flooring and 15-foot high ceilings. The estate also includes two additional structures—the Summer Cottage and the Oyster House.

The Summer Cottage, a cozy screened-in house along a path from the Big House, features exposed brick interiors, pitched ceilings, a fireplace, and a metal roof. The Oyster House, a massive abode comparable in size and amenities to the main mansion, spans 10,000 square feet. It is expected to host the wedding reception and includes three primary suites and five bedrooms with bunk beds salvaged from marine vessels.

Despite the grandeur, the property has faced challenges, including inclement weather and issues with the road network. Lopez has reportedly set high standards for the wedding venue, even addressing potholes and road conditions to ensure perfection.

The Riceboro estate is situated on Hampton Island, a 4,000-acre pristine enclave about 35 miles south of Savannah, Georgia. The property has historical significance as it was part of a former slave-operated plantation, known as Hampton Pastures, owned by Roswell King before the Civil War. Affleck learned about his family’s connection to slavery in 2015 when researchers for the PBS show Finding Your Roots revealed that his great-great-great grandfather, Benjamin Cole, owned slaves in Savannah.

The wedding celebration at Affleck’s Georgia estate followed the couple’s secret legal wedding in Las Vegas a month earlier. The event attracted A-list guests, including Matt Damon, George Clooney, Jane Fonda, and others. The lavish affair reportedly cost around $400,000 and involved extensive preparations, including dance floors, glassware, linens, and furniture.

The estate’s picturesque setting, with its moss-draped oaks and views of the North Newport River, provided a romantic backdrop for the wedding festivities. Despite the property’s historical context and Affleck’s family history, the couple chose to celebrate their union in this Southern haven, creating lasting memories in the picturesque surroundings of Hampton Island Preserve.
