‘Jersey Shore’ Star Mike Sorrentino Marries College Sweetheart Ahead Of Jail Sentence

by Olivia Jakiel

“Weddings. They bring everyone together!” — one of the vampires from Twilight, and also, me.

Come on, now; if you don’t love a wedding, there has to be something seriously wrong with you. Watching two people come together and commit themselves to each other for the rest of eternity is a beautiful thing. It’s an event meant to celebrate love, triumph, and, in this case, fist-pumping.

Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino got married to college sweetheart Lauren Pesce in a beautiful ceremony at The Legacy Castle in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, on Thursday, November 1. They were joined by friends and family, including the cast of Jersey Shore.

In an exclusive statement to US Weekly, the newly hitched couple gushed: “We are so incredibly excited to begin our journey as husband and wife! 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! With Love, Mr. & Mrs. Michael Sorrentino.”

Mike and Lauren tied the knot ahead of the reality star’s shocking prison sentence. He was found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to eight months in prison, and he is set to serve his sentence starting January 15, 2019.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock since 2009, you know of this group of stellar individuals.

They’ve been through a lot together, from the moment they appeared on MTV’s first season of Jersey Shore to huge milestone events in each of their lives.

Some of the Jersey Shore stars have had babies.

How adorable are JWoww’s two kids?

Snooki has two mini-mes of her own.

And Deena, who joined the cast in season three to replace Angelina (who everyone is friends with now; keep up with the drama, please), married longtime partner Christopher Buckner in 2017.

She’s now expecting a little one of her own any day now!

One of the Jersey Shore cast members, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, has been with college sweetheart Lauren Pesce for quite some time now.

Lauren and Mike got engaged in April 2018; you can see her stunning ring in the picture above.

The two had an incredible engagement party earlier this year. Check out those matching outfits! Can you say “couple goals”?

And can we talk about Lauren’s incredible rehearsal dinner outfit? Where can I get one of those jackets?

Last week, the longtime lovebirds got hitched in a beautiful ceremony in New Jersey. Both Mike and Lauren looked stunning in their wedding attire!

Ahead of the wedding, the couple exchanged some beautiful words about one another. Mike captioned this photo: “Today I marry my best friend , My College Sweetheart, My everything. 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 👰 🤵”

Did you grab some tissues? Are you crying yet? Just me? OK.

Congrats to the happy couple! We wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness!
