Mike “The Sit­u­a­tion” Sor­rentino mar­ries long­time love Lau­ren

Pesce on Nov. 1. See their ex­clu­sive wed­ding al­bum!

Mike “The Sit­u­a­tion” Sor­rentino loves be­ing the cen­ter of at­ten­tion, as any Jersey Shore fan knows. But when he mar­ried col­lege sweet­heart Lau­ren Pesce on Nov. 1, nine months af­ter a ro­man­tic Valen­tine’s Day pro­posal, the MTV star was a big ball of nerves. “I was try­ing to gather my com­po­sure and not break down,” he tells Us. He cried happy tears “through­out the whole day,” he ad­mits. “It was just so un­be­liev­able.”

And ev­ery­thing went off with­out a, well, hitch. From the venue — Legacy Cas­tle in Pomp­ton Plains, N.J. — to the grooms­men’s red velour Sweatsedo track­suits to the pot-of­s­paghetti groom’s cake, “this was the royal guido wed­ding,” says Sor­rentino, 36. The day was de­signed to honor his love for Pesce, 33, of course, but also to be “al­most like an homage to Jersey Shore,” she ex­plains to Us.

“It’s a part of Mike, of us — the Jersey

Shore cast is like fam­ily to him.”

A HAPPY RE­UNION

And the gang was there to fist pump. Jenni “JWoww” Far­ley, 32, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 30, Deena Nicole Cortese, 31, and An­gelina Pi­var­nick, 32, were among the 205 guests. (For­mer cast­mate Sammi “Sweet­heart” Gian­cola, 31, de­clined, “I think be­cause [MTV] cam­eras were there,” says Sor­rentino, but “she sent a very heart­felt, sweet gift.”) Grooms­men Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVec­chio, 38, Vinny Guadagnino, 31, and Ron­nie Or­tiz-Ma­gro, 32, along with the groom’s brother, Marc, gave what Pesce calls “hi­lar­i­ous and heart­felt” speeches at the re­cep­tion, then threw on those track­suits to join The Sit­u­a­tion in a dance to “It Takes Two,” per­formed live by ’80s hip-hop star Rob Base — a sur­prise for the bride.

A hon­ey­moon will hap­pen — but not for a while. Sor­rentino is due to be­gin an eight-month prison sen­tence for tax eva­sion in Jan­uary, so “we’re just go­ing to en­joy the hol­i­days to­gether and be­ing new­ly­weds,” he ex­plains. Though they don’t have a vis­i­ta­tion sched­ule worked out yet, they have no doubt they’ll get through the time apart with­out a prob­lem. “It’s gonna be a blip on the radar,” says Sor­rentino, who’s fo­cused on start­ing a fam­ily with his bride as soon as pos­si­ble. “We’re ex­cited for lit­tle Sit­u­a­tions,” he says. “We want at least three!”

Be­sides a tra­di­tional cake from Con­fec­tions of a Rock$tar Bak­ery, there was “a fun groom’s cake for Mike,” says Pesce, shaped like a potof spaghetti.
