Bachelor cast-off, Renee Oteri, may not have received the final rose from Juan Pablo Galavis, but she’s grinning from ear to ear as she found her happy ending and is now a married woman.
On Thursday, Renee Oteri tied the knot with her “best friend of 22 years” Bracy Maynard, only weeks after publicly revealing she was engaged.
The 32-year-old married her childhood sweetheart and proudly posted pictures on her Instagram account of the blissful event.
The bride was beaming in a simple white dress that she paired with tan heels while holding a small bouquet of pink flowers. Her long brown hair was curled and flowing past her shoulders, and she wore just a hint of make up. Renee captioned one of the pictures saying ”THAT just happened! I married my best friend of 22 years.”
The Florida mom’s 8-year-old son, Ben, from a previous relationship also joined in the celebration by fulfilling the very important role of serving as best man.
From the photographs, it appears their intimate ceremony took place at the local courthouse or City Hall.
Desiree Hartsock, a former “Bachelorette” was possibly present for the nuptials as she sent out a special tweet that read “I just witnessed the most romantic elopement ever! Congrats to the newlyweds. You know who you are.”
Since Hartsock resides in Seattle with her fiancé, Chris Siegfried, this only makes sense as it has been reported that Renee recently moved to Washington to be with Bracy, who is employed there.
Although Juan Pablo sent her packing after the hometown dates, Renee Oteri remained her classy self and said she harbors no ill will, describing him as “a great guy with a great personality.” She told Chris Harrison during The Bachelor: Women Tell All special that she had already moved on and was “ in a situation”.
Good for you Renee…Bachelor Nation is cheering you on!
