Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin are married

Bachelor in Paradise couple Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin met on Season 7 of the hit spinoff. Now, two years later they are officially married. The couple made it official in Puerto Rico surrounded by 65 of their closest family members.

People shared all about Kenny and Mari’s special day. She believes in signs and she chose her wedding day carefully. Mari said, “I do believe in signs and numbers, and so 11/11 is obviously seen as a special number and it means good things.”

Mari who is 27 also revealed that having their wedding on Veteran’s Day was extra special. Her dad served in the military for over 25 years. She said, “I’m his only daughter, so that’s special. He hasn’t had the best association or memories with Veterans Day, so hopefully this year we’ll change that and for Veterans Days moving forward.”

Braasch, 42, and Mari insisted on having their two dogs, Dice and Monster, be a part of their wedding. So, they flew to Puerto Rico with them and wore tuxedos for the event.

Mari wore two different dresses throughout the day. Both were designed by Justin Alexander. She ended up choosing a gown she had never really thought she would. She said, “It was completely different from what I had envisioned before I was actually starting to plan everything. I went and tried on dresses and I ended up going complete opposite of what I thought I was going to have.”
