Weddings are comprised of countless details: the bride's gown, the groom's tux, the rings, the bouquet. But, as many married couples have come to realize afterward, it's usually the unexpected moments that tend to make their big day, well, simply unforgettable.
Just ask the newly minted Mrs. Nicole LaValle.
It's no secret: Nicole and Jionni's nuptials was one for the ages. From Snooki's gorgeous dresses (yes, there was more than one!) to the up-all-night reception, the lavish "Great Gatsby"-themed affair would have been quite the envy of any West Egg partygoer.
Before we get an intimate glimpse of the wedding of the year on an upcoming episode of "Snooki & JWOWW," here's some inside information about the ceremony and reception -- straight from the blushing bride herself:
1. All the guests cried at the sight of Snooki.
"It was a very emotional day for everybody -- my friends crying seeing me in the dress, crying down the aisle. My dad in tears, my mom in tears," Snooki revealed in a podcast. "Everybody was crying -- but good cries. It was all good cries."
2. Queen Bey vibes were present, thanks to the paparazzi.
"[Pulling up to the church], I felt like freakin' Beyoncé. I'm like 'Why are all these people here?'" Nicole admitted. "It's not that big of a deal. I felt like Beyoncé. It was pretty awesome."
3. Lorenzo, um, struck gold as the ring bearer.
4. Vodka played a part in the pre-wedding preparations (and the afterparty, of course).
"I had the worst jitters that day and had to have vodka to calm down my nerves!" she wrote on her website.
5. The bride's glamorous pumps broke during the first dance.
"I was dancing so much that I broke the heels," Snooki revealed.
6. A shirtless Sasha Farber showed off his sexy moves.
7. McDonald's = the perfect finish for any celebration.
After the party came to a close, Snooki and Jionni "went to McDonalds and got everything." "Double cheeseburger, nuggets, fries… everything. I literally ordered the entire menu, and I ate it all," she dished on her website. We're lovin' it!
