Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney wed before family and close friends on Saturday at the Belcourt of Newport
in Newport, Rhode Island, People has confirmed the news of their wedding. The outlet also reported that Lawrence wore a Dior wedding dress.
The glamorous guest list included Adele, Ashley Olsen, Emma Stone, Kris Jenner, and Amy Schumer, according to People, and at Friday’s rehearsal dinner, superstars like Cameron Diaz and Nicole Ritchie enjoyed the function.
The historic house was inspired by Louis XIII’s hunting lodge at Versailles. TMZ reported the couple hired wedding planner Mark Seed for the affair with 150 people reportedly in attendance. The Guests were treated to an expensive menu, which includes wood-roasted fish with herbs and lemon-infused butter or five-week-aged leg of beef with forager’s sauce for their entree. And for dessert, house-made marshmallow s’ mores were also listed on the menu.
Lawrence’s wedding place was gossiped to be haunted at one point with ghost and murder mystery tours being offered years ago. The chateau was purchased in 2012 by Alex and Ani founder Carolyn Rafaelian who restored and cleansed the property. she told the New York Times in 2013 that “There were energies and entities, some not pleasant. I had a shaman perform ceremonies. We did a major cleansing, energy-wise. There was a lot of heaviness, but we took care of that. Now the house has a different vibration,”
The wedding comes one month after the Oscar-winning actress, 29, and her art dealer beau, 34, were found at New York City’s marriage bureau. It’s uncertain if Lawrence and Maroney, who had famed as photographer Mark Seliger in tow, legally wed during the September outing or simply obtained their marriage certificate. Page Six reported the couple’s escort also included two security guards and a friend. Anyway, it was always Lawrence’s idea to have a Massive wedding celebration.
A few months ago In a chat on Catt Sadler podcast, the Silver Linings Playbook star said she was pretty relaxed about planning her wedding. “I’ve been in a good place. I haven’t been neurotic about it. I’m, like, too lazy to be neurotic,” Lawrence quipped. “I saw a dress I liked, I was like, ‘That’s the dress.’ I saw a venue, I was like, ‘Cool, we got the venue.'”
Lawrence and Maroney, who were initially linked in June 2018, got engaged at the start of the year. “He’s the greatest human being I’ve ever met,” Lawrence said to Sadler. “He really is, and he gets better.”
“I don’t know, I started with the basics,” Lawrence answered when asked why she chose to marry him. “‘How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?’ It’s just — this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he’s just, he’s — you know. He’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney.”
She said, “I definitely wasn’t at a place where I was like, ‘I’m ready to get married.’ I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other. We wanted to commit fully.”
Lawrence said she might legally change her name.
“He’s my best friend, so I want to legally bind him to me forever. And fortunately, the paperwork exists for such a thing! It’s the greatest. You find your favorite person on the planet and you’re like, ‘You can’t leave,'” she laughed. “So I wanted to take up on that offer.”
This is the intial marriage for both Lawrence and Maroney.
