Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi from the hit reality show The Jersey Shore married her longtime love Jionni LaValle last Saturday, November 29. The wedding took place at the St. Rose of Lima church followed by a reception at the Venetian hotel in Garfield, New Jersey. The pair have been engaged since March 2012 and have two children together, Lorenzo, 2, and Giovanna Marie, 3 months.
Snooki apparently stayed calm leading up to the big day, saying, “It’s not that hard to plan a wedding. For me, it’s just that I don’t let myself get stressed out. I just enjoy the moment and I try to be positive about everything.” (I guess we would have to check with Jionni and her friends to see how true this statement was.)
Approximately 500 guests attended the nuptials. Other Jersey Shore guests included their friend Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, who looked conservative and crisp in a navy suit and tie. (What, no tank shirt and gold chains?)
The wedding was arranged in a black and gold color scheme in a “Great Gatsby” Roaring 20′s theme, complete with cigar and scotch bar. Snooki’s BFF Jenni “JWoww” Farley and fellow reality stars Sammi Giancola and Deena Nicole Cortese served as bridesmaids, wearing sexy strapless black dresses with bows. All rocked glittering headbands that were a nod to the “Roaring 20′s theme.
The simple but elegant bridesmaid bouquets were done up in shades of cream and white, which nicely contrasted with the black dresses.
Snooki wore two dresses, both from Bridal Reflections, for her special day. For the ceremony she wore a cream-colored, traditional lace gown in a vintage style. She changed into a strapless dress for the reception. (Nope, no leather or animal prints in sight.) She posted a photo of the gown on her official website an hour before the ceremony.There was still bling to be had in the gown’s detailing, and a lot of it added to the wedding bouquet.
There was also a lot of glitter on her fit-and-flare style reception dress, the “Elite” style gown designed by Ines DiSanto, which Snooki wore with a bejeweled headband and fingerless gloves.
After after a big night of celebrations that included free-flowing scotch, the new husband and wife woke on their first morning as a married couple feeling a tad under the weather, in true Jersey Shore style. “Hungover with my husband (That will not get old),” Snooki shared via Twitter on Sunday morning. “Getting mcdonalds and being slobs together. Waiting for walking dead tonight,” she added.
Later in the day, the newly minted husband-and-wife posted a photo of their sparkling wedding bands.
“Thank you @bandbjewelry for our gorgeous wedding rings,” Snooki wrote. “We couldn’t be happier!!”
Snooki has already updated her name on her Instagram account and seems to be proud and happy to be “Mrs.Nicole LaValle.” We wish them all the best (and seeing as there was no pre-nup signed, we assume Snookie will make every effort to make the marriage last!)
