When Teen Mom OG wrapped season six, fans witnessed a horror show, on Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer’s road to the altar.
The couple’s rushed ceremony occurred on May 15, in Hamilton County, Tennessee — right before the MTV dad entered rehab.
Their wedding episode was so alarming that MTV even warned that disturbing images were on the way — before revealing Ryan, doped and zoned out at the wheel of a moving car. His fiancee noticed, but rather than demanding that Ryan pull over, Mackenzie just moved to shut down the dashboard mounted camera.
Well after the embarrassing spectacle, the reality TV couple are now holding a do-over-wedding ceremony. And while Ryan’s son Bentley, 8, and baby mama Maci Bookout, were not invited to the first wedding, they’ll be in attendance at re-do wedding.
“She invited us to her wedding. Everything is just kind of at a resting place right now. It’s about our boys.” Mackenzie told E News. “This is a day about us, yes, but it’s also about us becoming a family. The boys have no idea that we’re already married. Bentley doesn’t even know that. So you know, for them, this is a huge day. And if that makes them happy, then that’s what we’ll do.”
The newlywed shared details on her ceremony and reception.
“It’s been in the works since the day we got engaged. It was never just decided upon — we knew from day one this was going to be it. It’s in this little cathedral-type church and it’s just absolutely beautiful. We went for a rustic-chic theme so there are elements that are super formal and elements that are just very laid-back. But it’s gorgeous. There’s a reception afterwards that’s in this old warehouse-type space that’s been redone. The wedding ceremony is me: super urban, super chic. But the reception is Ryan, where it’s rustic. It’s a great mix.”
As readers know, Maci exposed her baby daddy’s drug addiction on Teen Mom OG. According to Mackenzie, she’s impressed with Ryan’s progress.
“He’s doing amazing. I’m really truly impressed. I’m so proud of him and he is trying so hard. I mean, I can’t imagine what that’s like. I’m so proud.”
As reported, Ryan was busted for trolling for women on Tinder in August — the married MTV-er was caught sending provocative texts and dick pics to a woman he met on the popular app.
