After it was revealed earlier this month that Ryan Edwards married his fiancée Mackenzie Standifer before going to rehab, fans are now going to get a glimpse at their ceremony on the season finale of Teen Mom OG!
In a sneak peek for the upcoming episode, Ryan and Mackenzie let cameras film their extremely private ceremony that took place outside with a priest. The only people who were there to witness their wedding was Ryan’s parents Jen and Larry — and Jen was seen crying because she felt that rushing their wedding was not right, especially because Ryan’s son Bentley was not there on his dad’s big day.
“I don’t think we’re [going to tell Bentley],” Edwards tells his dad, Larry, in the clip. “If he does find out, we’re gonna sit him down.”
Ryan and Mackenzie tied the knot about one week before he went to seek treatment at a rehab facility for substance abuse. According to Hamilton County Clerk’s office records obtained by In Touch, Ryan and Mackenzie tied the knot on May 15 in a religious ceremony in their home state of Tennessee.

Ryan and Mackenzie’s wedding is the silver lining in the drama that’s been surrounding them ever since Teen Mom fans started speculating that Ryan was using drugs. Viewers noticed that something was off about the 28-year-old in the scenes that he filmed earlier this season and it wasn’t until his ex-fiancée Maci Bookout finally addressed the issue on camera that his struggle with addiction came to light.
Maci — who shares seven-year-old son Bentley with Ryan — opened up to her TMOG co-stars Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell about her baby daddy’s drug use during last week’s episode.
“Ryan’s f–ked up. I watch it. I see it. I know it,” the 25-year-old said, and she said that she wanted to try to convince him to go to rehab because if not, she’s worried that he might die from a drug overdose.
“I’m just gonna be like, ‘You have to go to rehab,'” she told her husband Taylor McKinney. “It’s about saving his life.”
It looks like her intervention worked because sources confirmed to E! News that Ryan checked himself into a rehab program about two weeks ago and so far, he’s “doing well.”
Meanwhile, Ryan’s wife Mackenzie has been silent on social media and she has yet to comment on their wedding or her husband’s rehab treatment. But she did defend herself from a fan who asked her if she was ready to worry about if Ryan is getting “high” for the rest of her life.
“Here’s a thought… maybe instead of making assumptions and tearing people down, you could spend that time praying for us instead,” the 20-year-old hit back.
