So, how entertaining does a Gatsby-themed wedding for a former Jersey Shore star sound? That’s right… Nicole Polizzi, also known as "Snooki," tied the knot over the weekend in New Jersey. The mother of two married her longtime fiancé and father of her children, Jionni LaValle.
Inspired by The Great Gatsby, Nicole Polizzi walked down the aisle wearing a custom lace gown in front of nearly 500 guests before changing into her 1940s-inspired reception second dress on Saturday. With a generous amount of wedding guests, it’s also no surprise that the wedding party involved 32 of the couple’s closest friends, including Snooki’s Jersey Shore BFF Jenni "JWoww" Farley.
The Jersey wedding comes as no surprise as the bride-to-be had been sharing secrets for the big day over the last few weeks. Via Instagram, the 26-year-old gave her fans a peek of her rehearsal dress anticipating the upcoming ceremony. The young mom also shared the plans for involving her two children, Lorenzo, two, and Giovanna, three months.
“Lorenzo’s going to hold a sign saying, ‘Daddy, here comes Mommy’ before I walk out, and hopefully he’ll walk down the aisle. You never know [with a 2-year-old], I might have to bribe him with a candy bar.”
Snooki and now-husband LaValle began dating while Polizzi was still on Jersey Shore almost four years ago. Fans were rooting for their on-and-off relationship to make it. The two then welcomed their first child Lorenzo in August 2012. Second child, Giovanna, arrived just three months ago (Snooki’s tiny frame shows no signs of a recent pregnancy…you go girl!).
Congratulations to the star who has made a complete 180 from being reality TV’s biggest party girl to being a wife and mom…always a Jersey girl though!
