The party took place Wednesday (July 24) on the grounds of Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s estate in Miami, and according to sources, it was quite a celebration for not only Lopez, but her close-knit network of family and friends.

“It was actually epic—it was a real friends and family thing,” a source tells People magazine. “It was like the closest people in her life and you could tell by the way she said hello to everyone that it wasn’t work.”

Of course, most of Lopez’ friends are just as famous as she is, including producer LA Reid, Ryan Seacrest, Fat Joe, DJ Khaled and Ashanti.  And it was these friends that couldn’t help but love when her fiancée Alex Rodriquez got up to raise a toast to his beautiful fiancé.

“Right before the buffet stations opened, Alex made a toast,” says the source. “He thanked the Estefan’s for having them and said how proud he is of Jennifer on this tour.”

And yes, there was dancing.

Lots and lots of dancing.

“When they played her song that DJ Khaled is on, ‘Dinero,’ her dancers picked her up on their shoulders and she sang along,” the source said. “The DJ and all the music she loves was a major part of the party.”

JLo took to Instagram to share her thanks for a fabulous 50th birthday party.
