Now they’re newlyweds! Lawson Bates and Tiffany Espensen are married lower than one 12 months after getting engaged.

Bates, 29, confirmed the pair exchanged vows on Friday, May 13, through his Instagram Story.

Us Weekly confirmed in October 2021 that the Bringing Up Bates alum proposed throughout a visit to Italy. The couple took their romance public in February 2021 and collaborated on the truth star’s music video for his music “The Way I See You.” Bates gushed over working with Espensen in a love Instagram put up that summer season.

“When I first had the idea to write this song, my goal was to capture a genuine and heartfelt message of empowerment, hope, and validation to someone who may be feeling overwhelmed, overlooked, and under appreciated,” he wrote in July 2021. “I wanted to make sure I had a broad perspective on things in the writing session, so I reached out to two of my favorite co-writers @janellearthur & @thejordanrainer. After an incredible 3 hour session, it all started coming to life!”

Gil and Kelly Jo Bates‘ son continued, “Little did I know before this song released that the girl of my dreams would be in my life and I’d be singing it for her 🤍.”

Ahead of their large day, the “Crazy Love” performer and Espensen answered followers’ burning questions on their wedding ceremony plans in a prolonged YouTube vlog. The couple defined why they selected to change vows on the West Coast regardless of the singer’s southern roots.

“For me, I’m super easy, I would have been like, ‘Let’s go to the courthouse,’” the previous actress stated within the April video. “We just kind of blended … and said, ‘OK, we’ll have it in San Diego.’”

Lawson chimed in, including, “Well, there’s a few reasons. A, traditionally, you always have the wedding in the girl’s hometown. … But everything’s not traditional, and that’s fine. Tiff said, ‘Let’s go to the courthouse,’ which would have been cool too. But I also thought that [San Diego] would be cool because there’s just so much beauty here. This is where I met Tiffany in person [and] fell in love with her, so I think it just made sense to have it here.”

The former UPtv character stated that the marriage’s location factored into the celebration “being on the smaller side,” explaining, “We want to keep it kind of [to] just our really close friends and family. Right now that’s putting us [at] about 200 folks, which is perfect.”

Lawson is the fourth of 19 Bates kids, all of whom have been featured on Bringing Up Bates earlier than it was canceled earlier this 12 months. Last month, the songwriter teased that he had one thing particular up his sleeve for his bride on as they ready to stroll down the aisle.

“I did write a song for the wedding,” he stated throughout their pre-wedding YouTube Q&A. “I love love songs now. A lot of you guys who listen to my albums know that I really love heartbreak songs, but I am definitely on the love trend right now. … This isn’t like anything I’ve ever done before. I feel like it matches Tiffany’s personality more than anything that I’ve written for her.”
