Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout has wed her boyfriend of four years, Taylor McKinney.
Bookout and McKinney got married at the scenic Honey Lake Resort in Greenville, FL, in front of 165 guests on Saturday, October 8, Us Weeklyreported.
Before walking down the aisle in a beautiful Riki Dalal Haute Couture wedding dress and exchanging vows inside a chapel with her pastor grandfather officiating "a very traditional religious ceremony," Bookout tweeted, "Today is the day."
"I am so excited because I don't use the word 'fiance' because I think it's kind of silly!" Bookout, 25, told Us. "So I'm excited to finally be able to call him my husband."
Fellow Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell and her husband Tyler Baltierra were among the wedding guests despite threats from Hurricane Matthew.
The rustic wedding was "really special," said Bookout, whose three children were also in attendance.
Bookout is mom to seven-year-old Bentley from a previous relationship with ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards as well as two kids with 27-year-old McKinney -- daughter Jayde, 1 year, and son Maverick, 11 weeks.
Bookout's floral arrangements included babies' breath, sunset roses, white hydrangeas and dusty miller. Instead of a cake, guests reportedly enjoyed a tiered display of doughnuts, and the couple's first dance was to John Legend's 2013 ballad "All of Me."
"I just love our teamwork. It's hard to find somebody," Bookout gushed of her tight bond with McKinney.
"We both are always willing to help each other and we both get things done; 95 percent of the time, for our lives to be so crazy, it's actually very calm, in a weird way. So I think our partnership is very, very strong."
The reality TV star and McKinney got engaged in January 2016, just one month before announcing they were expecting their second child together. McKinney had proposed with cameras rolling and the special moment aired as part of Teen Mom OG's sixth-season premiere in August.
As for what's next, the newlyweds will embark on a relaxing honeymoon in the Caribbean.
"We're going for seven nights, eight days," Bookout told the magazine. "So eight days with no children and beer and a beach, it's going to be awesome. I'd say by day five, though, we're probably going to be missing the kids a lot! But we'll try to enjoy it."
