Renee Oteri didn't waste any time once she got engaged.
The eighteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette wed her fiance Bracy Maynard on Thursday just three weeks after confirming her engagement on Instagram.
The 32-year-old single mom from Sarasota, FL, who recently moved to Seattle, WA to live with Maynard, has been sharing pictures from her big day on Instagram. It appears the newlyweds tied the knot in City Hall or a courthouse.
In one of the photos featuring Oteri in her simple floor-length white gown, nude heels and a pink bouquet of flowers, she wrote, "... and THAT just happened! I married my best friend of 22 years!"
Oteri captioned another photo of the couple, "'The Bourne's' #wedidit."
Oteri's eight-year-old son Ben apparently served as the groom's best man and his mom is "the happiest girl in the world."
"She is so happy and has wanted this with her fiance for a very long time! We're all so happy to see them back together!" a source told Us Weekly at the time. "He is always the one everyone wanted to see her with! She couldn't be happier."
Oteri was sent home during aThe Bachelor episode last month although her elimination filmed back in October.
Maynard is a childhood best friend of Oteri's who was also reportedly her first kiss and they had actually dated after Oteri had divorced her ex-husband in 2008 following four years of marriage.
