The weather didn’t cooperate for Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi’s 26th birthday bash, but it didn’t stop the Dancing with the Stars alum from having the time of her life. Despite freezing rain, Nicole’s closet pals made the trek out to Queens hotspot Cavo to celebrate with her. And of course, Snooki’s groom-to-be Jionni was never far from her side.

Once indoors and safe from Mother Nature, Nicole and her guests danced the night away, taking breaks to enjoy a red velvet custom cakes by Dina’s Delights as well as ones from Sweet Spot Bake Shop. The treats were then washed down with an ample supply of ZING red velvet cocktails. Hmmm, we’re noting a theme here - do you think Snooki likes red velvet much?

And while not all of her Jersey Shore co-stars were able to make it to the bash, Pauly D. recently told Wetpaint Entertainment he’s super stoked to DJ Snooki and Jionni’s upcoming wedding. “I think it’s going to be soon,” he exclusively told us. “It’s coming up.”

For her part, Nicole says she’s counting down the days until she’s Mrs. Jionni LaValle. “We can’t wait,” she told Wetpaint Entertainment. “I’m so excited to marry my best friend and have more babies together!”

We can't wait, either!
