Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is officially a married man!
According to Us Weekly, the reality star married his longtime girlfriend Lauren Pesce on Thursday (or, ahem, “Jerzday”) in New Jersey, surrounded by friends, family and of course, his ’Jersey Shore’ castmates.
Lauren said “I do” wearing a traditional white wedding gown and cathedral-length veil, while Mike looked dapper in a black tux.
Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Deena Nicole Cortese, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Pauly DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino and Angelina Pivarnick were among those in attendance for the celebration, with Jenni and Nicole’s 4-year-old daughters, Meilani and Giovanna, respectively, serving as flower girls.
Ronnie’s on-again/off-again girlfriend, Jen Harley, also attended the event with her and Ronnie’s daughter, Ariana. (Let’s just hope the couple kept their public feuding to a minimum as a wedding gift to Mike and Lauren… )
Before walking down the aisle, Mike shared a heartfelt post to Instagram dedicated to the soon-to-be Mrs. Situation.

Mike and Lauren’s ceremony took place at The Legacy Castle in Pompton Plains—an extravagant venue boasting four balconies, 10 bars, a helicopter landing area, two lakes, a 21-foot fountain and a grand lobby with 55-foot high ceilings, multiple chandeliers and a dual-floating staircase.
“We are so incredibly excited to begin our journey as husband and wife,” the couple told Us Weekly following the wedding. “We are each other’s best friend and together we can handle anything. Thank you to all our family, friends and fans who have supported us every step of the way. Gym, Tan, Laurens is the new GTL!”
Unfortunately for the newlyweds, the celebratory clink of champagne glasses will soon be followed by different kind of clink…
Following his eight months in the slammer, Mike has two years of supervised release.
