Here comes the bride!
According to a source, 150 friends and family of Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney are gathering in Newport, Rhode Island this Saturday to watch the actress and art dealer tie the knot at the romantic Belcourt of Newport, which is owned by a close friend of Adele's. Everything from the ceremony to the reception will no doubt be a lavish affair since it is all being coordinated by Mark Seed Inc., an event planner that doesn't even have a public portfolio for fear of revealing details of his exclusive events.
But thanks to a source, we know that the caterer is Heirloom Fire, which specializes in organic foods specifically chosen with preserving the ecosystem of the east coast. What's more is that the founder of the company has worked with the likes of Martha Stewart. So it only makes sense that it costs an average of $210 per guest.
It's unclear where exactly the wedding reception will take place since the Belcourt of Newport has numerous rooms worthy of hosting a dinner, but it will definitely be inside since weather is expected to be overcast.
While people are of course dying to know what the wedding dress will look like, a designer has yet to come forward as Jennifer's choice. But all bets are on Maria Grazia Chiuri, who is the creative director for Dior which J. Law is currently the face of.
And as for the guest list, one can assume that plenty of J. Law's famous friends will be there, including Adele and Bradley Cooper.
The bride and groom themselves arrived to Rhode Island via private jet on Friday afternoon. "Jennifer and Cooke took a private jet from New York to a small airfield in Rhode Island," an eyewitness confirmed to E! News. "They arrived around midday. They looked relaxed and excited to be there. They both had big smiles on their faces as they got off the jet. They carried their own bags and didn't have too much stuff. They were with some family and were taken to a hotel on the water."
Other guests also arrived on Friday to help the couple celebrate at a Friday evening dinner. "They spent the afternoon getting settled and ready for their evening dinner, a clam bake on Rose Island," a source confirmed for E! News. "Guests including Kris Jenner were picked up on boats and taken to dinner on the island."
All in all, the Belcourt of Newport and the menu is very on brand for Jennifer and Cooke. After all, Cooke is an art dealer, meaning he has an appreciation for the fine restoration of the residence built in the 1890s.
For a moment, fans believed that the Silver Linings Playbook star and Maroney were secretly married on Sept. 16. They were spotted at a New York City courthouse with a group of friends, which prompted the rumors. But now it's clear that the two were simply picking up their wedding certificate in anticipation of her nuptials.
Congratulations to the pair on this next chapter in their lives!
