Snooki to Marry in North Jersey
Another New Jersey community is bracing for the arrival of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her film crew.
The former "Jersey Shore" star is going to hold her wedding to Johnny LaValle at The Venetian in Garfield this fall according to The Record. The taping of the wedding will take place at several locations around the Bergen County community.
MTV has applied for permits to film which has city officials concerned about how their city will be portrayed. "Some are afraid of the reputation from the show the 'Jersey Shore,' but I don't think they want to put Garfield in a bad light," Mayor Joseph Delaney told the Record "I think their intentions are to film her growing up. I think it's a good idea, especially since The Venetian is a landmark in the state. To even consider filming here is a great thing."
City Attorney Robert Ferraro is reviewing the contract and is concerned about possible blocked streets and overall safety.
Polizzi has been busy preparing for her wedding, which will have a Great Gatsby theme, and has posted pictures on her Facebook page of her hair & makeup. She also modeled her wedding gown and bridesmaids dresses in her column on Celebuzz.com.
Snooki and her friend Jenni "J Woww" Farley, were featured in their own show that has showed them sharing homes in Manchester, Jersey City and Pelican Island, after filming "Jersey Shore" for several seasons in Seaside Heights.
Polizzi was drawn into a war of words with Pelican Island residents and officials when she vacationed with her family last summer. There were concerns she would disrupt the quiet town in Barnegat Bay that is still recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
