Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese may have missed out on the Jersey Shore Road Trip, but she didn’t need the cameras to have her very own squad reunion this weekend… at her wedding! The reality TV star said “I do!” to her longtime BF, Christopher Buckner, on Saturday, with most of the cast on hand to help her celebrate.
Just last month, the GTL crew surprised the 30-year-old bride-to-be with a super sweet engagement party and yesterday, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenny “JWoww” Farley, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, DJ Pauly D, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino came together again for her big day.
Minus one Ronnie Magro-Ortiz, the cast showed up in their finest formalwear, with black and printed dresses for the ladies and sleek black suits for the guys.
Snooki’s partner in crime also looked positively stunning as she walked down the aisle at the Laurita Winery in New Egypt, New Jersey, wearing a white strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline, floral appliqué, and a full skirt. She completed her look with a simple pearl necklace and flowing locks.
She also had an extra-special accessory on the inside of her dress —. a small piece of her late dad John Cortese’s shirt, which she had sewn inside the bodice next to her heart. “Even though you won’t be with me tomorrow physically… I’ll have a piece of you with me and close to my heart while I’m walking down the isle,” she wrote on Instagram, also sharing a small photo of her dad with two charms tied together with a white ribbon. “I love and miss you daddy.” Awwww!
It was a day filled with great joy for the happy couple, who began dating way back in 2011 and got engaged in November of last year during a romantic vacation to Riviera Maya, Mexico.
Kicking off with an outdoor ceremony at the vineyard before moving inside for the reception, where the group goofed around in a photo booth. Oh, how we would’ve loved to be a fly on the wall for THAT celebration!
Congrats, you two!
