Snooki & Jionni LaValle married in a Gatsby-themed wedding


These are photos from Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s wedding on Saturday. She and Jionni LaValle married on Saturday, and you can see her dress on Facebook and Instagram. She usually gives exclusives to Us Weekly (and sometimes People), so there may be a cover story. I’m including our agencies’ pictures from outside the Great Gatsby-inspired ceremony. J-Woww was a bridesmaid, and her dress was surprisingly tasteful.

I never thought these two crazy kids would make it down the aisle. They finally married after a nearly 3-year engagement, 2 babies, and a combined 5 years of dating. These two first hooked up during Jersey Shore, and it didn’t seem like a lasting union. Snooki flashed her bits in an Italian nightclub and Jionni fled Europe. They got it together, mostly. Are they still living in his parents’ basement? I don’t know.

Snooki’s still a mess, and she slips up a lot. She had the sense to evict herself from the Shore house during her first pregnancy. She wanted to revamp herself as the next Kourtney Kardashian and a super fit mom, but I still suspect disordered eating is at the root of her fitness. Jionni almost called off the engagement after a wild girls’ night out where Snooki made out with Ryder. I have so much shame for watching those shows.

Anyway. There was a wedding! Us Weekly has the details:

The proud parents to Lorenzo, 2, and Giovanna Marie, 3 months, celebrated their love with a Great Gastby-themed wedding, complete with a cigar and scotch bar.

Polizzi, 26, donned two dresses from Bridal Reflections for the big day: an off-white, traditional lace gown for the ceremony and a more “fun and Gatsby-themed” dress for the reception, the bride previously shared with Us. (An hour before the ceremony, she showed off her gown on her official website.)

Her bridesmaids, including BFF Jenni “JWoww” Farley, wore black gowns with bows on them. After the couple exchanged vows, the bridal party and family and friends danced to eighteen-piece band Time Machine.

Leading up to her big day, the former party girl kept cool.

“It’s not that hard to plan a wedding,” Polizzi told Us of her black and gold-colored fete. “For me, it’s just that I don’t let myself get stressed out. I just enjoy the moment and I try to be positive about everything.”

Polizzi and LaValle, 27, got engaged in March 2012 after dating for over a year. At the time, the reality star told Us: “I have different priorities now. I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”

Some more details: Most of the Shore cast attended. J-Woww, Sammi Sweetheart, and Dina Cortese were all bridemaids (along with 12 other girls). Pauly D and his blowout were there. Vinnie and The Situation were not invited (because Snooki slept with both of them). The reception included cigars and a scotch bar as part of the theme. I question whether Snooki has even read The Great Gatsby or could explain the signficance of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg’s glasses. She probably just liked the fashion. Congrats to the meatballs!

    Newbie Aussie here.

    I hardly know anything about this lady and have never watched whatever show she’s on or was on, but I get the impression she’s a bit of a messy minx. Of course, I’ve seen pictures of her and read bits and pieces, and conclude she’s lacking in class? Correct me if I’m wrong, please. I’m not on Facebook or Instagram, so can’t see any bride photos.

    Apart from the silly headband, the bridesmaid looks lovely.

    I’ve not been on Celebitchy very long at all, but I love reading the well-informed, enlightening and humorous comments from everyone.

      Disgusting and messy for sure. Also quite stupid. But nothing remarkable comes to mind. Like so many other insipid, idiotic party girls. Harmless but awful.

    • It is what it is says:

      Your conclusions are all correct and messy minx is an amazing phrase!! I love Aussies 😊

      • sally says:

        I have to defend Snooki. I watched Jersey Shore and she was a total mess on there. But since leaving the show, she really has matured. She is a mommy to two kids, her and Jionni now have a beautiful home together, her instragram shows her with her kids a lot as well as doing DIY home projects. She has a personal trainer and you can see from her pics she is fit with lots of muscle tone. In the last three years, she has a made a total image overhaul with a book, clothing and perfume line to support her family.

    • Sabrine says:

      No prenup and she’s got all the money. She’s obviously not overly bright.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      “messy minx” takes the day!

    Ah yes, just as F Scott Fitzgerald imagined…

    I like Snooki, for the most part since she’s had her son, she’s toned everything down. Partying, drinking even her hair & make-up.
    She & Nicole Richie were who I thought Kim would be after her pregnancy.

    • Ari says:

      I like her too. She has grown into a decent person from what I can see. Its not like most people don’t get a little messy when they are younger, let’s be honest. I am happy they are finally married I think family and friends are really important to her.

    • Kcarp says:

      I like her too since she had her son. I’m ashamed to admit I watched jersey shore. I ended up kinda liking her on that. She was way better than Sami Sweetheart and whatever his name fighting all the time.

  6. Am I the only dummy who thought she and whoever she’s with were already married?

    And I kinda like her these days (never saw her show, past or present), but she seems to have grown up.

  7. Nicole says:

    I like her. I think she’s a lot smarter than her onscreen persona. Hope she stays married and happy.

  8. snowflake says:

    love that idea. nice and origina. congrats snooki! I like snooki and jwwow, they seem like they have a good heart. i think nicole was looking for love and I’m glad she found it.

  9. scout says:

    Good for them! Who knew Snooki could be a proper married lady with 2 beautiful kids one day after all that “Jersey Shore” antics!

  10. Dani says:

    I love those bridesmaids dresses. Not crazy about the theme/her dress but hey, whatever floats your boat. I can’t get past the 15 bridesmaids though. What a long ceremony.

  11. Murphy says:

    That can’t be the reason Vinny wasn’t there.

    I don’t mind Snooki much these days but I don’t love the dresses. Whatever makes her happy is whats important though.

  12. jenn12 says:

    This has to be a wedding planner’s idea and I am amazed she thought it fit. Everything does look nice, though out of place on these meatballs. My dad couldn’t remember Snooki’s name, but calls her “that girl who’s famous for being on the beach all the time”.
