Mackenzie Standifier and Ryan Edwards, the lovely couple from Teen Mom OG, renewed vows for the second time as they tied a knot once again in mid-November 2017 at a church.
The reality star duo had gone for the nuptials a second time after their first eloped wedding. A year later of their second marriage, the married pair welcomed their first bundle of joy. But it could be all over the family of five as Ryan's drug problems get worse with each passing day.
Today, let's take a peek at the couple's recent wedding, along with the details of their relationship in detail and more!
Mackenzie Married Ryan Edwards In "Original" Wedding
As confirmed by E! News, Mackenzie, age 22, and Ryan, age 31, got married for the second time in a church ceremony amid dozens of their closest friend and family members on 18 November 2017.
Then-newlywed bride, who exchanged the vows in an 'original intended' wedding ceremony, said:-
“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.”
The celebration of the wedding got held in a converted warehouse-type space. While there were several attendees on the big day, Ryan's ex-fiancee TMOG's Maci Bookout and his then-nine-year-old son with Maci, Bentley missed the day even though they got invited to the ceremony.
Talking about Bentley, Mackenzie told that he didn't know she was already married to his dad; but above all, she was happy that the day of their wedding arrived. She shared her feeling after getting married by saying:-
“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.”
Well, the reality star also has a son named Hudson from her former partner, Zachary Stephens.
Mackenzie previously talked to E! News to hint the big day with her partner, where she said that they were getting married in a cathedral-like church and the reception would take place in an old warehouse. Adding to that, she also divulged that MTV cameras would be covering their lifetime moment.
The couple had previously tied a knot secretly in Tennessee earlier in May 2017 before Ryan headed to rehab.

Ryan popped up the question to Mackenzie over a romantic meal in December 2016. He shared a picture from the day, flaunting the engagement ring on Mackenzie's finger. Both the events were indeed captured in episodes of TMOG as well.
The couple's relationship also faced challenges at times; the rumors regarding their split surfaced back in August 2017. The false stories then took an interesting turn, as they later were said to have divorced.
However, she made a quick response to the issue and affirmed Radar that Ryan was still in the relationship with her. She said:-
“Ryan has not moved out.”
Further addressing the divorce rumors, Mackenzie said:-
“Those are not our plans.”
Well, those were all the bitter past. The couple, now, has already refreshed their vows, which leads their fans to believe that they are on their way to meet every relationship goal in future!

Teen Mom OG Alum Welcomes First Baby Amidst Divorce Rumors
Little over a year after exchanging their vows for the second time in an original wedding, Mackenzie and her husband Ryan Edwards welcome their first baby, a son named Jagger, in October of 2018.
It was Ryan's mother Jennifer, who had first confirmed the news after sending out a cryptic message that read, "Blessed!"

The news of the former Teen Mom OG stars welcoming their bundle of joy came five months after Ryan got arrested for possessing heroin. A month before the birth of their son Jagger, he admitted himself to rehab in September 2018 and only returned home when the holiday season kicked in.
Because he was still seeking treatment at a rehab center in Alabama, Ryan missed the birth of Jagger. His parents, Jen and Larry, were there to support Mackenzie in his absence.
Despite Ryan seeking redemption, fans believed that it might be a little too late to save their marriage from ending in divorce. A close source to the married duo told Radar Online,
“If he relapses again, she’s going to file for divorce. She’s serious. She doesn’t want to continue to be with someone who doesn’t help himself.”
Mackenzie's marital life might have been facing rough time at the time being, but she seemed hell-bent on making another couple's dream come true. In August 2018, she announced her newest wedding and event planning venture.
Pregnant With Baby #2
With her husband Ryan now on the road to recovery, Mackenzie and the kids were as happy as any family could be. Their joy doubled when they learned about the prospect of welcoming a new addition to the crew.
In July 2019, the Teen Mom OG sensation revealed being pregnant with baby #2, a daughter. Via Instagram, she shared a sonogram. The accompanying caption announced January 2020 as the due date.
