Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence got married over the weekend in Rhode Island during a ceremony and reception studded with Hollywood stars.

The “Hunger Games” star tied the knot with New York art dealer Cooke Maroney on Saturday, Oct. 19, at a Newport, Rhode Island, mansion.

Lawrence’s publicist confirmed to The Associated Press that the wedding took place, but did not provide additional details.

People.com reports that Emma Stone, Kris Jenner and Amy Schumer were among the 150 guests at Belcourt Castle, which is owned by Carolyn Rafaelian, owner and founder of the jewelry company Alex and Ani.

The Newport Daily News reports that about 100 fans stood outside the mansion hoping to catch a glimpse of a celebrity.

Earlier in June 2018, the pair were pictured holidaying together in Paris and Rome.

However, it wasn’t until February this year that things appeared to be serious between the two after Lawrence was spotted wearing a massive diamond ring on her wedding finger.

Although both have managed to keep their relationship relatively private, Lawrence did open up about her engagement during an interview on the podcast, Naked with Catt Sadler, earlier this year.

The Hunger Games star gushed that Cooke was her “best friend” and “the greatest person I’ve ever met.”

“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,” she told the former E! host.

The star added that the decision to marry was mutual between the pair, saying: “We wanted to marry each other, we wanted to commit fully.

“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!’ So I wanted to take that offer.”
