Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer Tie the Knot in Second Wedding Ceremony (REPORT)
They're getting a do-over! It's safe to say that Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards' first wedding to his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, wasn't exactly the perfect, fairytale wedding that one would normally dream of, so they got a second chance at saying, "I do!" Ryan and Mackenzie tied the knot — again — in a second wedding ceremony this weekend in Chattanooga, TN.
"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," Mackenzie told E! News, and said that Ryan's ex, TMOG star Maci Bookout was also invited. "Everything is just kind of at a resting place right now. It's about our boys. This is a day about us, yes, but it's also about us becoming a family."
According to RadarOnline, "Mackenzie received Maci’s response card. Yes, she will be there," a source close to Mackenzie told the publication. "They are getting along." Ryan's baby mama and her husband, Taylor McKinney, are reportedly the only cast members attending the event, as only the couple’s "closest family and friends" were invited.
Earlier this week, Mackenzie confirmed the nuptials by posting a photo with her friends at her rehearsal dinner. "Rehearsal dinner ft. my girls! (Minus @alivingston11 , missed you!!!)," she captioned the fun snap.
The Ashley reported, "They will be filming at the wedding, and a crew has been there capturing the pre-wedding stuff too," a crew source revealed. "For a while, [production] wasn’t sure if Ryan and Mackenzie would allow the wedding to be filmed since they declined to come to Los Angeles to film the special with the rest of the cast in October and some other things. But they are filming it."
The second ceremony — which will take place on Sunday, Nov. 18 — will be completely different than their first one, which was rushed, to say the least. During their first wedding — which was featured on the previous season of Teen Mom OG — Mackenzie wore a traditional wedding gown as she said her vows to Ryan while he was high on drugs, and MTV even documented Ryan driving while under the influence to their ceremony. The only people who attended the first wedding was Ryan's parents and it wasn't a very happy affair, since Ryan's mom cried the entire time — and they weren't necessarily tears of joy.
This time around, things will hopefully be more positive. According to The Ashley, the couple will have a full-on wedding complete with a bridal party and Mackenzie's son Hudson from her previous marriage will be in attendance as well as Ryan's son, nine-year-old Bentley Edwards. So exciting!
