Renee Oteri has not wasted any time at all in making her relationship with Bracy Maynard official! The two were engaged for a short time and now Wet Paint reported on March 21 that Oteri eloped Thursday.

Oteri was on Juan Pablo’s season of “The Bachelor” 2014 and made it all the way to hometown dates before being sent home. This heartbreak turned out to be the best thing for Oteri! She reunited with Maynard, who she has known since the age of 12, and has now vowed to love him forever.

The small ceremony took place with just a few people present, including her son Ben and former “Bachelorette” Des Hartsock. Oteri went to her Instagram account and posted pics of the special day. In a caption placed on a photo of her looking stunning in a white dress she wrote, “And THAT just happened! I married my best friend of 22 years!”

There was speculation that perhaps Oteri had wed when Des Hartsock took to her Twitter on March 20 and wrote, “I just witnessed the most romantic elopement ever! Congrats to the newlyweds. You know who you are.”

It is always a happy moment when a reality show fan favorite finds happiness. Congratulations and best wishes to Renee and Bracy on their new marriage!

Don’t miss the new season of “The Bachelorette” set to premiere in May.
