Anthony Serrantonio

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is a married man.

The Jersey Shore star wed his longtime girlfriend Lauren Pesce at The Legacy Castle in Pompton Plains, NJ on Thursday. 

The bride wore a beautiful gown with lace detailing and a long veil. The reality star also looked dapper is a classic black tuxedo.

"She looked stunning, and he looked very handsome," an insider told E! News. 

A guest said Sorrentino even teared up after he saw her in her bridal attire for the first time.

Pesce walked down the aisle carrying a bouquet of white roses. Of course, several of Sorrentino's cast members were there to celebrate this new chapter, including Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley. According to Us Weekly, their daughters, Giovanna and Meilani, served as flower girls. Other guests included Deena Nicole Cortese, who is pregnant with a baby boy, Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. In fact, a guest said that many of his co-stars were actually his groomsmen. 

The insider described the ceremony as "emotional," and the guest noted that the two exchanged self-written vows that were "all love and positivity."

"After all they've been through, everyone was thrilled to see them at such a happy, solid place," the source said.

Before the reception, attendees enjoyed a cocktail hour, where they wined and dined.

"The cocktail hour was ridiculous," the source continued. "So much food. People got stuffed at the cocktail hour. The sit-down menu was Venetian-style."

Then, it was time to get on the dance floor as the couple had hired a band to play during the reception.

"It was a great, heartfelt party," the guest said. "People were so happy for them. It was jubilant."

The wedding décor was also beautiful and included trees as centerpieces.

All in all, it seems like everyone had a blast.

"There was no drama," the insider continued. "Everyone seemed to be getting along and on their best behavior. It was a really happy night."

Sorrentino posted a sweet tribute to his bride just a few hours before tying the knot.

"Today I marry my best friend , My College Sweetheart, My everything," he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of them sharing a kiss. "Together as a team we can accomplish anything. I am so grateful that you are by my side. I promise to be my best self everyday & make you proud to call yourself Mrs. Sorrentino. Love you with all my heart. Here's to our big day."

Of course, Pesce had a sweet tribute for her groom, as well.

"We are happy to put an end to this chapter and excited to move forward in our future," she wrote on the social network. "We are blessed to have our health and the outpouring of support from family, friends & fans. We love you." 

The wedding came about six months after the MTV star popped the question. It also came less than a month after Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion. 

Congratulations to the happy couple!
