Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, making the same trip to the wedding capital of the world.”

The couple rekindled their romance last year after canceling their wedding in 2004 under heavy media scrutiny. Lopez announced her second engagement in April, showing fans a large green diamond ring in her newsletter.
