Jennifer’s Lawrence’s wedding menu has been revealed, and we’re honestly a little surprised it doesn’t include pizza. The famously down-to-earth actress is reportedly marrying her art gallery director fiancé Cooke Maroney this weekend, after which the newlyweds will apparently dine on cuisine that any foodie would surely say “I do” to as well.
Despite her status as a self-proclaimed junk food aficionado, it would seem Lawrence and Maroney opted to go a more upscale route for their nuptials. According to TMZ, guests will have their pick of four hors d’oeuvres: sweet potato flat cakes, brussels sprouts with cured egg yolk, smoked pork belly with pickled apple, and salt cod beignet. For the main course, the choice is either wood-roasted fish with herbs and lemon-infused butter, or five-week aged leg of beef with forager’s sauce. Other accouterments include a variety of veggies, such as heirloom roasted carrots, smoked new potatoes and whey-braised cabbage.
Even dessert sounds bougie — for the most part. Decadent dishes like fire-baked sourdough bread pudding with chocolate, salted caramel and fresh apple, and cauldron fritters with bourbon cream and cinnamon sugar are all in keeping with the refined nature of rest of the offerings. If Lawrence’s laidback nature is reflected anywhere, it’s in the house-made marshmallow s’mores rounding out the menu. Oh, and to wash everything down, guests will down Old Fashioned cocktails and gin cucumber lavender champagne.
Sounds like a foodie’s dream, right? Still, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t expecting a few more nods to Lawrence’s everyday noshing. In case you’ve missed her many references to food during red carpet interviews, she’s a big fan of it — and not necessarily food that qualifies as fine dining. In a 2017 interview with Foodiamo‘s Roberto Croci, Lawrence gushed about her penchant for carbs like “pizza, pasta, Philly cheesesteak, fries” and more. She (rightly) proclaimed that “pizza fixes everything.”
Lawrence’s unexpectedly elegant menu isn’t the only detail being reported about her and Maroney’s big day. For starters, it’s soon. Numerous outlets claim the couple will wed on Saturday, October 19, in Rhode Island. Per the Daily Mail, the couple has hired wedding planner Mark Seed to oversee everything. And they’ve reportedly kept it relatively intimate, as far as celebrity weddings go, with 150 guests. Wish we could go!
