Kenny Braasch & Mari Pepin tie the knot in Paradise! Cue the champagne showers!

It was a tale as old as time, or at least as old as Bachelor in Paradise, when Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin made their triumphant return to the sandy shores of Paradise for the ultimate beach wedding. The season 9 finale, which aired on December 7, saw these lovebirds exchange vows in front of their fellow Paradise pals, proving that love truly does conquer all – even the chaos of reality TV dating.

Mari, in her stunning halter wedding gown, made her way down the sandy aisle with romance in the air and the sound of crashing waves in the background. And who was there to officiate the ceremony? None other than the dashing Jesse Palmer. As the couple read their personalized vows, it was clear that their love for each other was as strong as ever.

But wait, there’s more! Kenny surprised Mari with a beachside proposal, and she couldn’t say “yes” fast enough. The couple then exchanged rings, with the ever-charming bartender Wells Adams playing ring bearer. As they said “I do” with the sun setting over the ocean, it was clear that this was a love story for the ages.

And the celebration didn’t stop there. After the vows were exchanged, it was time to party, Bachelor in Paradise style. The wedding reception turned into a full-on rave, complete with neon lights and pounding music. There’s nothing quite like dancing the night away with your fellow reality TV cohorts.

But this wasn’t the couple’s first trip down the aisle. In fact, Kenny and Mari had already exchanged vows in a second wedding ceremony in Puerto Rico on November 11. As Mari had previously revealed to Us Weekly, the couple had plans for multiple wedding events to accommodate their family and friends.

With their beach wedding and Puerto Rico celebration in the books, there’s no doubt that Kenny and Mari know how to throw a party. And who could blame them? After all, when you find love in Paradise (twice!), there’s certainly cause for celebration.

So here’s to Kenny and Mari, the ultimate Bachelor in Paradise power couple. May their love continue to shine as bright as the sun on a tropical beach, and may their marriage be as strong as the waves crashing upon the shore. Cheers to the happy couple!
