Well that didn’t take long! Just a month after announcing that she was engaged, Renee eloped and said ‘I do!’ Apparently it’s good that Juan Pablo sent her home!
Congratulations to the happy couple! While Juan Pablo left Renee Oteri, 32, in tears when she was eliminated after hometown dates on The Bachelor, she actually beat him to the alter! On March 20, the stunning mother of one walked down the aisle with her “best friend,” Bracy Maynard — and shared beautiful pics.
Renee Oteri Married To Bracy Maynard
“…and THAT just happened! I married my best friend of 22 years!” Renee wrote on an Instagram picture on March 20. In the photo, she was wearing a gorgeous, simple white dress with nude kitten heels. She was holding a small pink bouquet!
The lucky man is Bracy Maynard, who she has known since she was 12, People confirmed. She introduced him to her son Ben five years ago when he was three.
Now, they must be close — she posted a pic of her with Bracy and Ben on March 19, with the caption, “I love my boys.” Plus, she posted a photo of her son sleeping after the wedding writing, “And our best man is out like a light:).” So cute!
We know that they actually eloped, too!
Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock tweeted out her support to Renee:
I just witnessed the most romantic elopement ever! Congrats to the newlyweds. You know who you are 😉

Plus, we know it was Renee since she responded with three hearts!
Juan Pablo Wanted To Go To Her Wedding
Renee was emotionally sent home after bringing Juan Pablo to meet her family on The Bachelor, but the fan favorite looked glowing on the Women Tell All special and said she is “very happy” with her life now — we see why!
However, we’re pretty sure JP didn’t get invited to the big day — even though he wanted to go.
“At the end of it all, I’m very happy that Renee found someone and want to send her my congratulations,” Juan Pab wrote on his blog following the Women Tell All special. “I hope to be invited to the wedding some day.”
Maybe he was there — he’s from Miami and she’s from Sarasota — which is only about a three and a half hour drive! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked she already found her prince? Let us know!
UPDATE: Renee and Bracy are now expecting their first baby together!
