Renee Oteri completed her stint on The Bachelor without having found love. But it is in real life that she has finally tied the knot with her childhood crush, Bracy Maynard.
Things just did not work out between Juan Pablo Galavis and Renee Oteri on the set of The Bachelor. They were just not meant for each other and so a short-lived romance was followed by a tragic breakup and the heart-wrenching pain of loss.
But in reality this girl found true love in the form of her childhood love, Bracy Maynard. This was the boy she kissed for the very first time in her life. The marriage ceremony took place on Thursday. Their engagement had taken place a month ago and they had kept it under wraps.
But now it is official. They are man and wife till death do them apart. And the two make quite a charming and ideal couple. Renee blurted the truth on Instagram: “I married my best friend of 22 years.”
The photograph shows the excited Renee accompanied by her male partner. She is wearing a white lace gown and skin-colored pumps. In her hands is a bouquet of pink flowers.
Her prepubescent son from a previous marriage was the best man. But he was exhausted by the end of the day and went to the Land of Nod. Desiree Hartsock who was on set with Renee was present on the occasion too.
Maynard happened to be in the military once but he has taken up other pursuits now. The wedding ring he gave Renee appeared to be more or less an average version though. But as they say, it is the thought that counts.
To think that Renee finally kissed a man on her wedding day who was the same boy she kissed so many years ago. It seems like a miracle, yet it is true. However, some people do get what they have always cherished in their heart of hearts. At least, Renee Oteri did!
