5 Thoughtful Ways Jennifer Lawrence Personalized Her Wedding to Cooke Maroney
Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney’s lavish wedding was a thoughtfully-personalized celebration of their love. On October 19, the Oscar-winning actress married her art gallerist fiancé in an intimate New England ceremony. The exclusive guest list of 150 loved ones included A-listers like Amy Schumer, Kris Jenner, Emma Stone, Elizabeth Olsen and Adele. To help pull off the extravagant wedding weekend, the couple enlisted the help of event planner Mark Seed. In addition to the luxe venue and celebrity guest list, the couple also made sure to include sweet personal touches to make their wedding…well, their own.
According to The Knot 2018 Real Weddings Study, couples are increasingly putting their own personal stamp on the wedding day through unique touches like interactive food stations, décor choices or customized cocktail options. Seventy percent of all couples who got married in 2018 had at least one signature wedding element. In fact, a quarter of couples who married in 2018 offered a signature cocktail, while 10 percent incorporated eco-friendly items. (Spoiler alert: Lawrence and Maroney offered a creative and personal drink and put a sustainable spin on their celebration.)
Celebrating your love story in an authentic way is all about incorporating thoughtful details, which is exactly what Lawrence and Maroney did. Below, see how Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney personalized their wedding.
Homage to Hometown
While the wedding was held in Newport, Rhode Island, Lawrence’s Kentucky roots were a major part of the celebration. The wedding menu was extensive, with everything from sweet potato flat cakes to salt cod beignets on it. But the couple also served Kentucky-style barbecue for their guests as a nod to the star’s home state. In addition to the Southern-style dishes, the couple also offered guests a special signature cocktail: the Old Fashioned—a tried-and-true Kentucky favorite.
Late Night Food Trucks
As a self-proclaimed junk food lover, it’s no surprise Lawrence’s wedding involved a collection of scrumptious late night snacks. While there haven’t been any reports of pizza (one of the star’s favorite foods) at the reception, there were burgers. Around 11 p.m., a food truck from Boston’s Baddest Burger and Sandwich Company parked in front of the venue, according to People. The food truck served traditional burgers, chicken sandwiches, veggie burgers and hot dogs, according to the founder of Boston’s Baddest Burgers (via the Boston Globe).
