Whatever happened in Vegas did not stay in Vegas for Bennifer.
The world learned on July 17 that

The two, who first dated 20 years ago and then split in 2004, married in a ceremony in A Little White Wedding Chapel, north of the famous Las Vegas strip.
The venue was also the site of other celebrity weddings in the past:
