Looks like that role in The Wedding Planner really paid off for Jennifer Lopez.

Lopez and dancer boyfriend Cris Judd swapped vows Saturday evening in a private ceremony in Calabasas, California, said her publicist, Alan Nierob.

The nuptials come just eight months after Lopez reportedly ditched Bad Boy Entertainment mogul Sean "P.Diddy" Combs for Judd, an L.A.-based choreographer and hoofer.

While Lopez might sing "Love Don't Cost a Thing," we're guessing she and her betrothed didn't skimp when it came to matrimonial money.

The bride was swathed in a custom-made, low-cut Valentino gown. The wedding and reception took place at an undisclosed private residence in the rural surburb north of Los Angeles--an upscale community dominated by ranches and farms, many of which are owned by celebrities.

Attorney Barry Hirsch presided over the ceremony. The couple's longtime friend and Lopez's manager, Benny Medina, acted as best man and Arlene Rodriguez, Lopez's best friend since childhood, did maid-of-honor chores. The ceremony was attended by about 170 family and close friends.

Strangely enough, until the happy pair actually said their "I dos" this weekend, Lopez's camp had never even confirmed she and Judd were an item--Nierob had issued a blanket "no comment" to any questions involving Lopez's love life.

Not that it was ever a big secret. Lopez, 31, and Judd, 32, met during the "Love Don't Cost a Thing" video shoot while she was still going steady with Combs. By Valentine's Day, Puffy, her very public beau of two years, was officially history. Weeks later, the Oscars became Lopez and Judd's coming-out party and their whirlwind romance was on.

In June, the New York Post reported Judd popped the question during a weekend barbecue in Los Angeles. A month later, Lopez performed on NBC's Today show sporting a diamond ring. But when asked by Matt Lauer if she was engaged, she responded with a wink, "I guess you'll have to wait and see."

We didn't have to wait long. In August, the couple held an enagagement party in L.A. at the swanky Melrose Avenue eatery Morton's.

Aside from collaborating on their wedding plans, the two continue to work together professionally. Judd recently choreographed two Lopez concerts in Puerto Rico that will be turned into an NBC TV special airing during November sweeps.

For the record, this is Lopez's second trip down the aisle. The Bronx-born Fly Girl-turned-actress-turned-pop star married Cuban waiter Ojani Noa in 1997, but they divorced a year later. Judd's a novice newlywed.

No word on where the marrieds plan to honeymoon. When asked, Nierob chuckled and went back to his old standby: "No comment."
