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."
