How Did Deena Nicole Cortese Meet Her Husband?
Deena Nicole Cortese met her now-husband, Christopher Buckner, at a local bar in 2011. Their chance meeting happened just after she had finished filming for season 4 of ‘Jersey Shore’ and her friends had planned to watch a match of football while enjoying drinks at Metro in Freehold. Chris was one of the two people who had walked in later, and his coyness intrigued the reality TV star instantaneously. Chris was left awe-struck as he laid his eyes on Deena for the first time.
Unlike him, curiosity got the better of Deena, and she went into a full-on stalker mode, which included finding him on Facebook and sending him a friend request. What started as a casual approach ended into a fairytale love story. The next time Chris showed up at the bar, Deena could not restrain herself from going up to him and introducing herself. Owing to the show’s success and popularity, he and his family not only knew her but were also huge fans.
They kickstarted their relationship right away and spent the next five years drunk in love. The adorable couple ticked all the check-boxes, including getting a pet, a dog named Cali, and buying a house together. In November 2016, her beau finally popped the question while the two were on a trip to Mexico. On October 28, 2017, they shared their wedding vows at Laurita Winery in New Jersey.
