The Jersey Shore’s Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is getting married to his longtime love Lauren Pesce, and his BFFs/castmates are here for him. In the hours before Thursday’s scheduled festivities, Angelina Pivarnick, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Deena Cortese sent out love via social media.
"Today is the day that the @jerseyshore family gets to see @mikethesituation marry his college sweetheart @lauren_pesce #hitchuation," Pivarnick wrote. "@chris_e_piss_e and myself are honored to be able to spend this amazing day with you guys. See ya later."
Farley acknowledged their roller-coaster relationship, saying she has nothing but love for him now.
"I keep trying to come up with a caption for this, but I truly can't put into words how much this guy means to me. From the crazy up and down friendship we once had, to someone I now call my brother," Farley wrote to him along with a video montage of their photos together over the years. "@mikethesituation, big daddy Sitch, BDS, the inspiration... you are an incredible human. I'm so honored to call you my friend. Your star shines brighter everyday. Can't wait to see you and @lauren_pesce tie the knot."
The Situation also had some sweet words to share.
"Today I marry my best friend , My College Sweetheart, My everything. Together as a team we can accomplish anything," he wrote. "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."
Sadly, the love fest has a shadow over it. The Situation won’t have much of a honeymoon as he’s set to head to prison for an eight-month sentence for tax evasion January 15th. A rep told People that he’s s "grateful to continue work, celebrate the holidays and his three years sober milestone" before turning himself in.
"He looks forward to completing his sentence and coming home to Lauren, family and friends," the rep added.
