The Oscar winner and her fiancé were spotted at New York City’s marriage bureau on Monday, September 16.
“Jennifer and Cooke were at the weddings bureau together on the morning of September 16,” a source tells Us Weekly. “They had a female friend and a photographer with them the entire time. They sat in the couches to the left and were trying to remain unseen. Their photographer and friend were standing in the front of them. Jennifer had her head rested on Cooke’s shoulder and they were holding hands. The two looked very much in love. I didn’t see them enter the ceremony room, but they did take pictures in the courthouse in front of the area where newly married couple usually do. They were posing for pictures together in front of a big New York backdrop.”
As Us Weekly previously reported, the newlyweds wanted their “wedding to be simple and sophisticated.” The insider also noted that the couple’s nuptials would not “be an over-the-top celebration.”
Maroney proposed to the Hunger Games actress in February after beginning their whirlwind romance less than a year prior. Lawrence’s longtime friend Laura Simpson introduced the star to her art gallery director spouse. They later began a relationship in the spring of 2018.
The couple celebrated their engagement in New York City with a party attended by close friends and family on May 12. Stylists Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson shared a picture on Instagram of the then-bride-to-be wearing a dress from L. Wells Bridal, captioning the moment: “Here she comes! We couldn’t be happier and more excited for #jenniferlawrence to become a #MRS.. this weekend we toasted Jen and her groom to be.. too good of a time was had by all.”
While Lawrence tends to keep a relatively low profile, she has publicly commented on her involvement with Maroney before. She first opened up about her now-hubby in a June 4 interview with Entertainment Tonight, where she admitted that agreeing to his proposal “was a very, very easy decision.”
“Well, he’s just the best person I’ve ever met in my whole life,” she shared to ET at the time.
Maroney, like Lawrence, has been quiet when discussing his relationship with his now-wife. When the couple were first linked, a source told Us that the New York University graduate “plays very coy when speaking about her to his friends and colleagues.” But the insider further noted that “he is clearly smitten about her.”
