Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is officially a married
The former Jersey Shore star and fiancé Jionni LaValle got married on Saturday in a flashy and extravagant (would you expect anything less?) Great Gatsby-themed wedding ceremony in New Jersey, her rep confirmed to E! News.
The two lovebirds swapped vows in front of their large wedding party of 32 pals (17 groomsmen and 15 bridesmaids, including Jenni "JWoww" Farley), nearly 500 (!) of their nearest and dearest and, of course, their two adorable children who each played a special role for their mama's big day. Their son, Lorenzo, 2, walked down the aisle, while their baby daughter Giovanna was escorted in a stroller.
"All of the nieces and nephews, so there's eight total, including my kids," Snooki had said. "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 posted a photo of herself in one of her wedding dresses. She looked stunning in an off-white, lace ballgown and cathedral veil with a lace trim. And her bouquet was bling-tastic!
The bride told NJ.com that she had purchased a more form-fitted, Great Gatsby-style wedding dress at the reception, set to be held at the Venetian in the city of Garfield. after the ceremony, Snooki and her husband filmed scenes for MTV's Jersey Shore spinoff, Snooki & JWOWW.

Snooki's fellow Jersey Shore alumni Deena Cortese and Samantha "Sweetheart" Giancola, were also bridesmaids and had a sleepover before the big day. Former co-star DJ Pauly D also attended.

So did Snooki's 2013 Dancing With the Stars partner, Sasha Farber.
She prepared for the big day by de-stressing with some music.

And she also got her lashes done.
The wedding planning began a while back, and the young reality star has been sharing every step along the way with her social media followers. Earlier this week, Snooki posted a gorgeous photo of herself in a dazzling white dress that she wore to the rehearsal dinner (that also became a Jersey Shore reunion), and we caught glimpses of her bridal shower and wild bachelorette weekend in Miami.
You can watch footage of Snooki's wedding on Snooki & JWoww on MTV at 10/9c.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
