On what should have been the happiest day of their lives, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's wedding celebration took a sudden turn on Friday, US media outlets reported.
The Georgia celebration with family and friends was reportedly paused after an ambulance was seen arriving and then transporting Affleck's mother to a Savannah-area hospital, the Liberty County Sheriff's Office told People Magazine.
Photos obtained by The Daily Mail show Affleck’s car following the emergency transport vehicle and others show his mother, Christopher Anne Boldt, exiting a south Georgia hospital in a wheelchair.

A source told the Mail that she cut her leg after falling off a boat dock and that her injuries were not serious.
Earlier in the week, the couple, their children and a gaggle of other friends and family were spotted strolling around historic Savannah, Georgia, which is known for its manicured parks, antebellum architecture cobblestoned streets and southern hospitality.
The pair, widely known as “Bennifer”, married in Las Vegas, Nevada, last month, 20 years after they first started dating. They were engaged but broke up in 2004.
In the years after, Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner Affleck, with whom he shares three children — Violet, 17, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
Lopez was married to singer Marc Anthony with whom she shares twins Emme and Max, aged 14.
Affleck bought his Georgia home in 2003 for a reported $7.1 million. It has several guesthouses, a private dock and is surrounded by lush greenery and Spanish moss.
Richard Mopper of real estate firm Engel and Volkers spoke with Homes and Gardens on the estate’s splendid offerings.
“This property truly captures the spirit of Savannah’s southern charm,” he said. “From its veranda views of the river and expansive pastures, to the properties’ multiple luxurious residences adorned with decadent features and classic Southern style, every corner of the estate exudes the warmth and hospitality that are unique to America’s South.”
Meanwhile, throngs of guests began arriving to the estate on Saturday, including Matt Damon, George Clooney, Jane Fonda, Renee Zellweger, Jimmy Kimmel as well as Affleck's Jay and Silent Bob friends Kevin Smith and Jay Mewes and their wives.
Surprisingly, Affleck's younger brother, actor Casey Affleck did not attend the festivities and was seen in Los Angeles coffee shop on Saturday.
