After more than two years of being engaged and two children later, reality television star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi married her fiance Jionni LaValle Saturday afternoon in a ceremony in East Hanover, New Jersey. Snooki, who rose to fame as the result of the MTV reality tv show “Jersey Shore,” tied the knot in a much more traditional setting than that for whichPolizzi is typically recognized.
The Catholic ceremony and reception was attended by many of her reality TV friends, including fellow co-stars Jenni “Jwoww” Farley, Sammi Giancola and Deena Cortese, who all took part in the wedding as one of Polizzi’s 15 bridesmaids.
Polizzi’s fans got a first look at the bride ahead of the ceremony when she took to Instagram and Twitter, posting a photo of herself in her gown and veil holding her bouquet of flowers along with a message to promote the TV show that filmed her nuptials, saying: “Hey booboos! Here is my first photo from my wedding today! Make sure you tune into Snooki & JWOWW on MTV 10/9c to see me walk down the aisle and marry the man of my dreams. xoxoxo Love always, Nicole.”
According to a report by Hollywood Life, the nuptials had a Great Gatsby theme, which was the groom’s idea, inspired by the Leonardo DiCaprio-led remake of the classic film and novel. Fitting with the theme, the bridesmaids wore strapless black gowns with period hairstyles and matching prohibition-style headpieces.
Polizzi and LaValle’s two children, their 2-year-old son Lorenzo and their 2-month-old daughter Giovanna were also reportedly part of the ceremony.
