Deena Cortese, self-styled “blast in a glass” star of MTV reality show ‘Jersey Shore’, tied the knot with longtime soul mate and fiancé Christopher Buckner at the Laurita Winery in New Egypt, New Jersey on Saturday.
“Finally the special day for these two amazing people together has come that will never be forgotten! So glad they shared the memories with her fellow cast mates who came out to show love and support to the ultimate duo,” Cortese’s rep is supposed to have told E! News.
Among the guests at the evening vineyard nuptial were Deena’s MTV co-stars Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
Here’s how some of them congratulated the doting couple in their own inimitable styles.

Following the open-air exchange of marital vows, the happy group moved indoors for the reception where cocktails and a wedding cake by Chocolate Carousel awaited them.
The former MTV reality star made it a point to remember her father, who passed away in June 2016, by sharing a picture of a pendant with his photo and a medallion with “I used to be his Angel now he’s mine” inscribed on it.
Hours before the magic moment, Cortese, 30, posted these endearing pictures of herself and her soon-to-be husband.
She followed it up by sharing a picture of a bunch of roses she received from Buckner along with a card which said, “For the love of my life! I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together.”
She responded to his message by captioning the post, “I can’t,” followed by two crying emojis, followed by, “this is the perfect day I love you so much baby .. you know how to put the biggest smile on my face .. the flowers are beautiful .. just a couple hours until we say I Do.”
