Snooki is officially married!

Reality star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, 27, married her longtime beau Jionni LaValle, 27 at St. Rose of Lima Church in East Hanover, N.J., on Saturday, People confirms.

Here's a first look at the bride from her blog.


Snooki also shared their first picture as a married couple and called the ceremony "magical."


The theme of their wedding was Great Gatsby, and they celebrated in a lavish reception at the Venetian banquet hall.

For her reception, the bride changed into a different dress for reception. The "Elite" style was designed by Ines DiSanto. Take a look at the happy couple's first dance.

LaValle even posted this Instagram pic of Leonardo DiCaprio from the movie in excitement the morning of the big day.

Snooki tweeted a link to the image, adding, "And this is why I love this husband." 

A month ago, Snooki teased the big day, telling ET, "The colors are gold and black and the party is just going to be insane. I mean, you know we can throw parties."

LaValle had 17 groomsmen while Snooki had 15 bridesmaids, including her former Jersey Shore castmates and friends Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi Giancola and Deena Cortese.

However, not every cast member was invited. Snooki told ET on Oct. 31 that Mike Sorrentino and Vinny Guadagnino were not on the guest list. She said,"We all know me and Mike [Sorrentino] aren't friendly. I still wish him the best, but me and Vinny [Guadagnino] don't really talk either."

The couple's two children were also a big part of the day. They have a 2-year-old son named Lorenzo and daughter Giovanna, who was born in September.

Snooki told NJ Advance Media recently, "Our children are our lives, so it would be wrong not to include them on our special day," she said. "A wedding resembles a family's commitment to each other and I feel like the kids need to be involved."

The duo first met during Snooki's partying Jersey Shore days, and Jionni was first seen on Season 3 in 2011. At the time, Snooki even referred to him mistakenly as "Bernard" after drunkenly meeting him at club Karma.

Fast forward a year later, and in March 2012, they shared two big announcements, an engagement and their first child.

The ring was a precursor to the lavish affair. According to MTV, the custom-designed ring he gave her runs $55,000, and the jewelry store owner shared that the proposal -- without cameras -- took place at the W Hotel in Hoboken, N.J.

Congrats to Snooki and Jionni!
