Celebrities are well known for holding lavish wedding ceremonies, but much like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, many superstar couples have opted to surprise the world by getting married in Las Vegas instead.
From Bruce Willis and Demi Moore to Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, famous pairs over the years have proven that Sin City will always be a popular choice when it comes to tying the knot in a low-key ceremony.
However, the popular destination doesn’t particularly have the best reputation for long lasting marriages.
Some superstar couples that eloped in Sin City have managed to last for the long haul with the likes of Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos recently celebrating their 26th wedding anniversary. Elsewhere, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are set to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in September.
Meanwhile, other couplings have failed to go the distance, with Britney Spears famously ending her marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander after 55 hours, while Nicolas Cage’s marriage to Erika Koike lasted just four days.
Indeed, the many celebrity weddings that have taken place over the years indicate that what happens in Vegas doesn’t often stay past Vegas when it comes to high-profile nuptials.
After Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez joined the growing list of couples to say ‘I do’ in Vegas, FEMAIL has taken a look at the other stars who famously got hitched in Sin City – and uncovered whether or not they are still together.

True love conquers all: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have become the latest celebrity couple to tie the knot in Las Vegas
Marry Me: The couple were the picture of happiness on their special day which came as a surprise to fans
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tied the knot over the weekend in an intentionally low-key ceremony, nearly 20 years after the couple called off their engagement due to ‘excessive media attention.’
The high-profile pair surprised fans by choosing to slip away to Vegas with their kids for an intimate exchange of vows at the world famous A Little White Wedding Chapel.
The chapel – established in the 1950s – has married about 800,000 couples and has been the chosen venue for many quick celebrity weddings.
Jennifer, 52, detailed her journey to the altar on her newsletter On The JLo, where she shared how the couple read their own vows and opted not to pay extra for an Elvis impersonator during the intimate ceremony.
In the newsletter – which was signed Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck – the Hustlers star included candid selfies of the newlyweds and video of the couple preparing for their special day, including one of Ben, 49, getting ready inside the chapel’s bathroom and photos of the singer in her wedding dress.

Second Act: The superstar couple opted for a low-key ceremony, twenty years after they had been due to say ‘I Do’ in a lavish Santa Barbara ceremony
‘We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out, love is patient. 20 years patient,’ she wrote in her post. ‘Exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world.’
She continued: ‘Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday – all of us wanting the same thing – for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage.
‘So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives.’

The star shares 14-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony, 53, and Affleck shares three kids with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 50: Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
The dynamic couple tied the knot just three months after becoming engaged again and two decades after the actor first got down on one knee.
After meeting on the set of the film Gigli in 2002, the twosome planned a lavish September 2003 wedding in Santa Barbara. However, just days before the date the duo announced that they planned to postpone the event.
Months later they ended their romance completely and married other people shortly thereafter. The pair then delighted fans when they officially rekindled their romance in May 2021.

Kourtney captioned the gallery of retro snaps to her 168million followers: ‘Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license).’

Under her leather jacket, Kourtney wore a yellow 2012 vintage Versace bustier with a huge crystal gothic cross down the middle as she and Travis, 46, packed on the PDA by sharing several kisses.
They both also sported a pair of black designer sunglasses as her man opted to show off his body art by going shirtless under the outerwear.
As an Elvis impersonator to officiate the wedding was mandatory, the one they got did not disappoint as he sported a shiny gold jacket and several matching chain necklaces with the King Of Rock ‘N Roll’s signature large shades.
In May 2022, the reality television star legally tied the knot with the Bling-182 drummer in a Santa Barbara courthouse, before they held a lavish Italian wedding in Portofino weeks later.

He continued: ‘We get home and it’s like, “Whoa, hey, listen something changed.” So I called them up and they said, “Somebody pressed the wrong button that sends the video to TMZ.”’
Shia filed for divorce in 2018, but it’s been unclear if the union was actually fully dissolved, or even legally binding, especially after a Twitter account for Clark County, Nevada, tweeted that the he and Mia, 28, merely had a non-binding commitment ceremony with the Elvis impersonator.
