"This evening for her will be all about making memories with those she loves the most. That's what's important to Jen now."
The nuptials will be Theroux's first and Aniston's second - she was previously married to Brad Pitt.

Puerto Rican rappers Calle 13 are set to be honoured by New York City officials. Rene Perez Joglar and Eduardo Jose Cabra Martinez will be feted by Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito for their social justice efforts ahead of Sunday's (08Jun14) Puerto Rican Day Parade, which Joglar will lead.
Mark-Viverito tells Buzzfeed.com,"I approached (de Blasio) and told him I would like to jointly host (the reception at the mayor's official residence of Gracie Mansion) since I'm the first Puerto Rican in (my) position."
She adds of Calle 13, "I believe when you have a level of notoriety or a prominent position it's important when you're not afraid to express an opinion, especially the way they challenge through their lyrics. They speak out against injustice and issues that others may shy away from. I may not agree with them on everything, but the fact that they even dare to challenge people is good."
Joglar admits he is honoured to be recognised and is looking forward to hosting the parade.
He says, "I am proud to have been chosen to preside over the Puerto Rican Day parade in New York. This is a celebration that permits us to come together to honour our culture and celebrate our nationality and identity."

Rocker Morrissey was booed by large numbers of his own fans on Tuesday (13May14) when he stormed off stage during a gig. The former The Smiths frontman, who abandoned a concert in San Jose, California last week (ends11May14) over a stage invasion during the encore, abruptly ended his show in El Paso, Texas.
He stopped a song midway through without warning and simply told the crowd, "Sorry, sorry" before walking offstage and gesturing to his backing band to follow.
In footage of the incident posted online, loud boos can he heard ringing out as the singer exits.
It is unclear why Morrissey again abandoned a show during the encore, with some witnesses blaming over-zealous security guards for the incident while others suggest the rocker was upset when an audience member tried to grab his crotch.
The star is due back on stage in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Wednesday (14May14).
British rocker Morrissey's comeback gig in San Jose, California on Wednesday (07May14) was abandoned midway through the encore when enthusiastic fans invaded the stage to hug the singer. Last year (13), Morrissey was forced to axe 60 concerts and scrap his American tour after a string of health woes.

Legendary salsa star Cheo Feliciano has died in a car crash at the age of 78. A vehicle driven by Feliciano, real name Jose Luis Feliciano Vega, collided with a post in the Puerto Rican city of Cupey in the early hours of Thursday morning (17Apr14), according to a spokesperson for the country's police.
Feliciano began his career as a percussionist in a number of high-profile salsa bands, including Tito Rodriguez's orchestra, before becoming the singer for the Joe Cuba sextet. He later joined Fania Records' Fania All-Stars.
The musician became a determined anti-drug campaigner after beating an addiction to heroin at the end of the 1960s, and he volunteered to help with the rehabilitation of other salsa stars who had were battling drugs.
In 2008, New York's then-mayor Michael Bloomberg declared 20 June Cheo Feliciano day in honour of his 50-year career in the music industry, and he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Latin Grammy the same year.
Feliciano was inducted into Puerto Rico's Music Hall of Fame in 2013, months after announcing he had been diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer. It is not known how far the illness had progressed when Feliciano died.
