The pair, who got engaged last year during a trip to Mexico, tied the knot Saturday at Laurita Winery in New Egypt, New Jersey.
The evening ceremony took place outside among the vineyards, and then guests — including her former MTV castmates Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino — moved inside for the cocktail hour and reception. Jersey-based bakery Chocolate Carousel made the wedding cake.
DelVecchio, Farley, Giancola, Guadagnino and Polizzi all surprised Cortese last month by kicking off her bachelorette party weekend with dinner at Martorano’s in Atlantic City.
“I love all these people so much,” Cortese, 30, wrote on Instagram Sept. 23. (The reality star’s bridesmaids also threw her a bachelorette weekend in New Orleans in August, which included partying in the French Quarter and a drag brunch.)
Giancola, 30, has been supporting Cortese throughout her journey to the altar, having attended her former housemate’s bridal shower back in May.

“I’m so happy my sweetheart was able to come and celebrate with me today,” Cortese captioned a May 20 Instagram shot. “You have no idea how much it means to me Samantha. I love you mama.”
Cortese and Buckner have been counting down to the big day since their rehearsal dinner started last weekend at Italian eatery San Marzano in Freehold, New Jersey, the same town where the newlyweds met in 2011.
