I go to a site called Celebrity Baby and they had a link to this photo of the Affleck/Garner wedding. I actually feel bad as neither of their parents were in attendance, I am wondering if this whole this was a fake out and they are having the real wedding elsewhere? I mean this two ppl are VERY close to their families and not even the parents are there? Seems fishy to me. She did look very pretty though

I am a celeb gossip addict : . I think its great that they just had a small ceremony. Besides it probably wouldn't have been a well kep secret if the press found out both of their families were meeting them there. This way they were able to suprise everyone and not get caught in the celeb wedding trap.

I agree, but I am thinking this was a ruse? And again 92 views and only the 3 of us comment????? Very strange?

I find that some MDC mommas find it "beneath" them to discuss television or celebrity gossip. Lots of views, but only a few of us admit that we're semi-interested.

What about the freaking Tom Cruise and Brittney Spears threads? At least this is a couple that ppl can openly be happy for kwim? They are keeping to themselves and not as in your face as some others?

All right, I will admit I am one of those who has looked at this thread but not commented. I love happy celeb news and I love wedding stuff. I have to say, though, that I do not understand how more people are interested in Tom Cruise and Brittany Spears than a nice wedding. Those two are just weirdos and I try to avoid their news.


Back on topic. Her dress looks nice!

I havent been paying too much attention to the Ben and Jennifer Garner hoo ha, but I love Jennifer Garner. She seems like a really down to earth person and I like that she was a band geek in high school, makes her more relatable Ever since the Ben JLo thing though, I find Ben Affleck kinda annoying. Saw way too much of him in the media. So, I guess I gotta respect their trying to stay out of the limelight this time...The photo is nice, and they look cute and happy
As far as Tom Cruise goes, can anyone say ! He needs meds despite all his proselytizing (sp?) about the psychiatric profession. And what about Steven Spielberg? Poor guy sets out to make a movie he has dreamt of putting together and "golden boy" Cruise is kinda giving the whole thing a strange vibe.
Okay, I think I just revealed way too much about myself
I admit, I am a total celeb junkie.

There's no freak show element to Bennifer II, so they're pretty boring to discuss. I just wanted to see their wedding photos. I've been to Parrot Cay and wanted to see if I recognized where they did the ceremony.

I don't really 'get' her, though. I don't watch Alias, and after the overexposure of Ben&Matt I don't have much interest in him (especially after the Bennifer I debacle). They both seem like pretty normal people, though, so there's not too much to say. If she happens to be carrying Britney's twins, though...

Celeb gossip certainly isn't beneath me! When I need a break from the kids and life in general, I head to the bookstore and read those wonderful celeb mags! It's a great escape! As for their parents not being at the wedding...Dh and I are VERY close to our families, but we wanted it to be just us at our wedding. We got married in the courtyard of a B&B in New Orleans. We told our families that we were getting married, but we chose to just do it on our own. So, I don't think it's weird to not have the parents at the wedding.

Glad you all admit we are not alone in our addiction! :LOL

pumpkinseeds she was dating Michael Vartan from Alias but they broke up and then he did a movie with JLo after Bennifer 2 was formed! How strange is THAT! Wonder what they talked about? :

I think it was a fake wedding so that the photographers won't follow them. THEN they have the real ceremony with their whole family and noone is the wiser

I like Ben better, he is one of the few stars that I think it really good looking. Not perfect but then again who is?

I like Ben, but Jennifer annoys me. Breaking up with Noel (sp?) (Scott Foley) to hook up with Michael Vartran was not cool.

I'm happy for them anyways...

She is preggo, isn't she?

The way I took the Garner/Foley split was that he was very upset over her success and he just could not handle it. Obviously we will never know the reason but I don't think she seems the type to cheat while married, just my opinion.

And yes when they announced the marriage they also admitted that she is 3 months pg. Word is it's a boy

I wonder if they'll do a bigger ceremony later, after the baby's born? Maybe they just wanted to get married before the kid came.

Scott Foley cheated on Garner with his costar Amanda Detmer. Vartan was her rebound guy. They were only friends while she was married. Jennifer is not that type of girl.

I Jennifer Garner. I'm not a big fan of Ben, but I think that's because of J.Lo (who annoys me to no end). I gotta say that Michael Vartan is pretty darn cute. Wonder why it didn't work out with them. . .

Just because you can't see their family in the photo doesn't mean they aren't there just out of frame, right?

I wasn't a fan of Ben IRL (just in Kevin Smith movies) but I was reading Kevin's glowing chapter on Ben as a person and he sounded like a good guy. Hmm, but I also remember hearing Gwyneth Paltrow say something about him after they broke up, like she wanted to date someone like her dad, and Ben is more frat boy and strippers kind of guy.

I did just read an article that about 50 of their family and friends were there and joined them afterward for the party as Bruce Willis estate. So that is possible, you can clearly see a camera man there in the pics .......yes in the Star : I just had to see them! :LOL I am hoping they might sell the pics to the legitimate media so we can really see her dress, it looks really pretty and not over the top like La Lopez
