That was fast!
Less than one month after Renee Oteri got engaged to Bracy Maynard
, the happy couple
are now husband and wife.
"And THAT just happened. I married my best friend of 22 years!" wrote newlywed Oteri, captioning an Instagram photo
of her smiling, clad in a long white lace gown and holding pink blooms.
Oteri, who was left in tears on The Bachelor
after Juan Pablo Galavis
bid her farewell after hometown dates
, has known Maynard since she was 12 years old, PEOPLE confirms.
A special wedding party addition was Oteri's son, Ben, who was introduced to Maynard five years ago, when the boy was 3.
"And our best man is out like a light :)" Oteri captioned a photo of her son in a tie, fast asleep.
Tweeted Desiree Hartsock
, Oteri's friend and Bachelorette: "I just witnessed the most romantic elopement ever! Congrats to the newlyweds. You know who you are."
