Ever since Alaskan Bush People star Bear Brown and his new girlfriend, model Raiven Adams, decided to take their relationship public, we’ve been dying to know all the details. Luckily, we’re starting to get some, because on Thursday, July 25 Radar Online revealed the couple actually met nearly a year ago at little brother Noah Brown‘s wedding to Rhain Brown. Apparently, Raiven and her mom showed up to take photos of the nuptials, and she and Bear hit it off pretty much immediately.

“She was welcomed into the Brown family with open arms. Bear has also met her family and they are so happy together!” a source told Radar. Though Bear, 31, and Raiven, 21, have quite the age gap, it doesn’t seem to have stopped them from connecting, and the Discovery Channel audience will be able to judge that for themselves. “Fans will get to see Bear fall in love for the first time,” the source said. “Raiven has been a great addition to the cast.”

The model was the one who first introduced herself to ABP fans. Though her social accounts are set to private, she did chat a little with Radar. “I am so happy and feel so complete with Bear in my life, and I know that we can get through anything,” she told the outlet. “I am living my life as best I can and I am trying my best to not get overwhelmed by all of the new experiences.”

Those new experiences include filming a reality show, but we’re willing to bet she’s also referring to all kinds of extreme activities, like climbing trees, howling at the moon and punching fish. According to Bear’s little sister Rain Brown, the model has already started adapting to “ranch life,” and her mom, Kassy Michelle, seems to back that up. “Seriously so beautiful!” she called the photo of Raiven, Rain and Bird, and we can’t help but agree.
