It’s wedding bells for Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi…
The 27-year-old Chilean-American reality television star married her fiance Jionni LaValle in front of an audience of 500 guests, including family and friends, on Saturday, November 29.
Polizzi’s ceremony took place at St. Rose of Lima, a Catholic church in East Hanover, New Jersey.
Snooki donned a white traditional lace gown, while LaValle looked sharp in a suit with a bowtie. Her reality TV co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley served as maid of honor, while her former Jersey Shore castmates Sammi Giancola and Deena Cortese were among her 15 bridesmaids. They wore black gowns with bows on them.
The couple’s children also took part in the ceremony. Their 2-year-old son Lorenzo walked down the aisle, while their 2-month-old daughter Giovanna was escorted in a stroller.
“Lorenzo’s going to hold a sign saying, ‘Daddy, here comes mommy’ before I walk out,” Snooki previously said of her son’s role in the nuptials.
The ceremony was followed by The Great Gatsby-themed reception at The Venetian banquet hall in nearby Garfield. Snooki changed into a more fun dress to match the black-and-gold soiree, which was LaValle’s idea. “This is why I love this HUSBAND…’No old sport…I’m Gatsby’,” she gushed on her website.
The nuptials, also attended by fellow Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D, were filmed for her reality show “Snooki & JWoww“. As a sneak peek, Snooki posted a series of pictures from the big day, including the first look at her wedding dress and her first kiss with her new husband.
“Thank you all for all your messages of love and support!” she told her fans online. “We had a magical ceremony and I can’t wait to share more with you soon! Make sure you tune into Snooki & JWOWW at 10/9c on MTV to see all the precious moments!”
Snooki and LaValle were engaged in March 2012 after dating for more than a year. She gave birth to their first child several months later in August and welcomed their second child in September this year.
