Jennifer Lawrence is tying the knot with New York City gallery director Cooke Maroney.

Their romance has evolved over the last several months, with a source confirming to PEOPLE in June that the Oscar winner, 28, was dating the art dealer, 34.

The two also enjoyed a trip to Paris and later Rome in August. A source told PEOPLE the couple “seemed happy, occasionally holding hands” while in the French capital.

Lawrence began dating Maroney after splitting from her mother! director Darren Aronofsky in November 2017.

Maroney works in the New York art scene and reps clients like Lena Dunham’s artist father Carroll. The two reportedly met through one of Lawrence’s close friends, according to Page Six TV, the outlet first to report the news.

The actress called the director her “very good friend” when they reunited as she was presenting Aronofsky an award at the BAM Gala in Brooklyn in May 2018.

In February 2018, Lawrence said on WTF with Marc Maron that she still loved Aronofsky and that she’s on good terms with all her former beaus.

“I’m friends with all my exes, actually,” she said. “For the most part, yeah, I have a theory: I think it’s because I’m blunt. I don’t think that you can have any sort of bad relationship with anybody if you’re just blunt.”
