Jennifer Lawrence Reportedly Tied the Knot at a Historic Newport Estate Over the Weekend
News broke that Jennifer Lawrence was engaged to her gallerist beau, Cooke Maroney, back in February. Now, it's becoming clear that the couple is already looking forward to their wedding. Here, every detail that's come out so far.
THE COUPLE REPORTEDLY TIED THE KNOT THIS WEEKEND AT A HISTORIC NEWPORT MANSION.
According to People, Lawrence and Maroney booked Belcourt of Newport in Rhode Island for their big day on Saturday, October 19. The estate was designed by Richard Morris Hunt in 1894, and it took cues from Louis XIII’s hunting lodge at Versailles. It's currently being restored by Alex and Ani CEO Carolyn Rafaelian, who's been documenting the progress on Instagram.

TMZ reports that they've prepared to host about 150 guests at their wedding, with a delicious menu featuring five-week-aged legs of beef, salt cod beignet, and smoked pork belly with pickled apple. For dessert, house-made s'mores will reportedly be offered, alongside fire-baked sourdough bread pudding with chocolate and other delectable options. And to wash it all down, attendees will enjoy old-fashioned bourbon cocktails and gin cucumber lavender champagne.
LAWRENCE HAS A WEDDING REGISTRY ON AMAZON.
The list of items offers an insight into Lawrence (and likely Maroney's) lifestyle. It's organized into sections like "Hosting and Happy Hours" ("I love to host people at home," she says) "Travel" ("I travel a lot for work," she notes), and "In the Kitchen." The latter, Lawrence says, is about to get more exciting: "Cooking for two is always more fun!"
Highlights include an automated mop, a pasta maker, a GoPro, a weighted blanket, and a fondue set. Shop the whole registry here.
THE PLANNING PROCESS IS WELL UNDERWAY.
Lawrence revealed on the podcast "Naked with Catt Sadler" that she'd already nailed down a gown and a venue. "I like saw a dress I liked. I said, 'Oh, that's the dress,'" Lawrence said, explaining that she's been fairly low-key about wedding planning. "I saw a venue, and I was like, 'Cool, we got the venue.'"
A source told ET, "They are both very low-key and down to earth and want nothing more than to avoid a 'stuffy, pretentious' atmosphere. Their vision is traditional with a relaxed and casual ceremony. They mainly just want to share their love with friends and family and to express their happiness to those closest to them."
LAWRENCE ADMITTED TO HAVING A "BRIDEZILLA MOMENT," BUT IS MOSTLY PRETTY RELAXED ABOUT THE WHOLE THING.
The actress originally thought she didn't want a bachelorette party but decided last minute that she did. Unfortunately, by that time, it was too late—her friends weren't available. "I didn't realize that I wanted it until yesterday; until I realized I couldn't have it, which is typical," she said on Sadler's podcast. "My friend was like, 'Welcome to being a bride.' I've cried, I've officially joined the club."
Otherwise, she says, "I haven’t been neurotic about it. I’m too lazy to be neurotic."
EXPECT FAMILY-CENTERED GATHERINGS—DURING THE WEDDING, AND AFTERWARDS.
A source described Lawrence as a "family girl" to People, noting, "I would be surprised if the wedding were not a fairly extensive family affair."
"[They] recently signed onto an amazing luxury apartment in New York City," ET's source noted, adding that they're already been thinking about starting a family. "They both want children and have been discussing starting a family...Their families truly believe they are meant to be; his family loves her family and vice versa, so their parents are excited. Their parents get along so well and are all looking forward to big family get-togethers."
THEY'VE ALREADY HAD AN ENGAGEMENT PARTY.
Lawrence is from Kentucky, and Maroney's family owns a farm in Vermont (which is on Airbnb, by the way), but they opted to hold their engagement celebration in New York City, where Maroney is currently based.
A source told ET that the party was held at Brooklyn's River Café on May 11. The event was reportedly "pretty casual," and included guests like Emma Stone, Lawrence's good friend. Lawrence apparently asked that Mandarin duck be on the menu, which also included vegan options.
That night, Lawrence was spotted in a silk chiffon dress by bridal designer L. Wells—which maybe hints at what she'll look like on her big day. Her stylists Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson shared a photo of her in the gown.

IF LAWRENCE'S ROCK IS ANY INDICATION, THE COUPLE'S TASTE SEEMS TO BE LUXURIOUS, BUT TASTEFUL.
The ring features a simple, slim band, and a large emerald-cut stone. Kathryn Money, VP of Strategy & Merchandising for Brilliant Earth, previously revealed to Town & Country that the stone was either four or five carats. Money estimated that the price point was somewhere between $60,000 to $100,000.
