Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are preparing to host a three-day wedding celebration at his massive estate in Riceboro, Georgia. 

An extravagant celebration is in order since the pair first tied the knot in a small, low-key ceremony at Las Vegas’s Little White Wedding Chapel last month. 

Affleck purchased the lavish Georgia estate back in 2003 while he was dating Lopez the first time around.

The 50-year-old actor attempted to sell the property for $8.9 million in 2018. However, he removed the listing from the market in 2020 after it failed to sell.

"The Big House" features a family room, exercise room, formal dining room, library, billiard room, outdoor kitchen and so much more, according to The Business Journal. The historic home also has massive arched fireplaces.

The exterior of the private Georgia estate, previously owned by John Morgan – chairman of Plum Creek Timber Company – displays 25-foot Doric columns and a wraparound porch.
