Lopez shuts down film production for wedding

Jennifer Lopez ordered all production be shut down on her movie El Cantante, after realising the filming was disrupting a wedding being held next door.

The actress was filming with husband Marc Anthony in San Juan, Puerto Rico, when they learned movie trucks and crowds were blocking a hotel next door that was hosting a wedding.

Bride Juliana Rosales spent a year planning her nuptials to Dennis Gonzalez, and was incensed when a film staffer asked her to stop taking pictures at her own reception.

When the celebrity couple heard about the disruption they had caused, they immediately halted production and met with the duo to apologise, even agreeing to pose for pictures with the newlyweds.

Rosales says: "Everyone apologised. I'm happy. I have a story to tell my kids."

At one point, Rosales' furious mother threatened to bring shooting to a standstill by standing on a street corner and screaming until the cast and crew made way for her daughter.
