Ben and Jen chose the actor’s Riceboro home for the event, with the singer planning the party shortly after her Vegas wedding, according to TMZ. The publication has reported that they were supposed to tie the knot there 20 years ago, but reports at the time said it was supposed to be in Santa Barbara.

The home — located in the coastal town of Riceboro, Georgia, just outside of Savannah — is a two-story, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom mansion. There are also two other smaller properties on the premises with additional bedrooms.

Ben and Jen have traveled extensively since their July 16 wedding in Las Vegas.

The couple honeymooned in Paris, France before heading to Italy for the UNICEF concert in Capri, where the hitmaker headlined a show in support of Ukraine. A trip to New York with her mongrel brood followed.
