“Bachelor” star Juan Pablo Galavis might have left Renee Oteri in tears, but the 32-year-old is now a smiling bride.
Less than a month after getting engaged to Bracy Maynard, the happy couple made it official on Thursday.
“And THAT just happened. I married my best friend of 22 years!” the new bride wrote on Instagram.
Renee wore a white gown and nude heels to the ceremony, which appears to have been held at a courthouse or a city hall. The groom sported a tan suit with a blue tie.
Renee’s son, Ben, 8, was also part of the wedding party, but by the end, was fast asleep in a photo the bride posted.
“And our best man is out like a light :),” she captioned in the pic of her son asleep in the backseat of a car.
During “The Bachelor” Season 18, Juan Pablo ended things with Renee after her hometown date in Sarasota, Fla., but Renee spoke highly of the controversial “Bachelor.”
“He’s a great guy with a great personality. He’s super funny, outgoing and naturally good with people and kids. He’s very emotional and sincere,” she told People of Juan Pablo after her exit from the ABC series.
Adding, “I have nothing negative to say. He’s a class act. I still feel the same as I did the moment I met him.”
