Maci Bookout of MTV's Teen Mom is a single mom no more! The reality star just married her sweetheart, Taylor McKinney, in a dazzling destination wedding in Greenville, Florida, saying their "I do's" in front of friends, family, and Maci's three children.
After almost four years together and the birth of their first child (and Bookout's second), McKinney and the 16 and Pregnant alum got engaged back in January, with the groom popping the question on the beach in front of MTV's cameras. Now, after expanding their brood by one more, the pair finally tied the knot on Saturday, October 8. "I am so excited because I don't use the word 'fiancé' because I think it's kind of silly!" Bookout explained to Us Weekly. "So I'm excited to finally be able to call him my husband."
The newlyweds married at Florida's Honey Lake Resort in a beautiful rustic wedding, so stunning it deserves its own reality show! Before the ceremony, Bookout got ready with her gal pals in matching flannel shirts, and then, carrying a bouquet of burgundy and peach peonies, Bookout walked down the aisle of the property's charming chapel in a unique and über-romantic Riki Dalal Haute Couture wedding dress in a soft mauve hue. There, the couple was pronounced officially wed by Bookout's pastor grandfather after reading their own vows. "[It was] really special," notes Bookout.
After tying the knot, the pair headed to their reception, where tables were decorated with centerpieces of babies' breath, sunset roses, white hydrangeas and Dusty Miller, and where fellow MTV stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were there to celebrate their newlywed status. Bookout and McKinney shared their first dance to John Legend's "All of Me," and then after hours of grooving, guests dined on a tiered arrangement of doughnuts (so trendy!) in lieu of a traditional wedding cake.
So what's next for these newlyweds? A honeymoon in the Caribbean, according to Bookout! "We're going for seven nights, eight days," said the bride. "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."
