If you think you know everything there is to know about Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra’s wedding then think again! From their first dance to the vows to who almost stole the spotlight (!!!), get all the secrets on the biggest wedding of the year!
The couple’s daughter Novelee was the flower girl, as she was pushed down the aisle in a white wagon by Tyler’s niece Alexis. “She was playing with the petals inside,” Tyler told Us Weekly. “It was adorable.” As for the ring bearer, RadarOnline reported that the role went to Catelynn’s little brother Nicholas, 9.
Catelynn and Tyler opted to write their own vows instead of going the traditional route. “I knew I wanted to start with, ‘From the moment I first met you, I prayed that you would be my husband,” Catelynn told Us of her vows.
“Tyler said Cate was his middle school sweetheart and mentioned they had two beautiful children together,” a source told Radar of his vows to his longtime love. Catelynn added of her hubby’s words, “He said he wants to love me forever until his last breath.”
Once the ceremony was over, the couple took the stage for their first dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” During the dance, Tyler dipped his bride as “flames shot up on each side.” Talk about a show-stopping number!
Although their daughter Carly, 6, who they placed with adoptive parents Brandon and Teresa Davis, wasn’t in the wedding, she shared a special dance with Tyler. “She just squeeze me the whole time and wouldn’t let me go,” he said. "So I soaked it in.”
Although Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood and Kailyn Lowry were in attendance, on-again, off-again friend Farrah Abraham was MIA. “Farrah has a tendency to make everything about her," an insider told Radar. "If she had shown up, she would have created a spectacle." And the sex tape star wasn’t missed! "No one talked about Farrah," source added.
Tyler’s father Butch’s ex-wife April (who is Catelynn’s mother), were both in attendance. “There was no drama,” a source told Radar. “There was only crying out of happiness.” Phew!
Speaking of Butch, he was recently released from prison after a 4-year sentence for drug abuse and domestic violent. “He apologized for missing a lot of the important days in my life and kind of being an absentee father,” Tyler told Us of his dad’s toast. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the whole place.”
The couple danced the night away, leaving no time for food! “We didn’t even eat the food we paid for,” Catelynn said. “I had, like, three bites of mashed potatoes.”
After the ceremony, the couple skipped out on an after party and focused on themselves – and eating! “We sat in the kitchen and had fried chicken, cheese and crackers,” she told Us of their 4am rendezvous!
