As Teen Mom OG fans know, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, both 23, tied the knot on Saturday after more than ten years together. Family and friends spilled some secrets on social media, but RadarOnline.com has all the exclusive details they missed!
The beloved reality couple only had 154 guests— including cast mates Amber Portwood and Maci Bookout, and Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry— at the Michigan nuptials, but millions more will be able to catch the action on MTV! "The wedding was filmed for the show," a source tells Radar.
Always unique, Lowell and Baltierra wrote their own vows at the altar. "Tyler said Cate was his middle school sweetheart and mentioned they had two beautiful children together," the insider says. (The couple placed daughter Carly up for adoption in 2009; six years later they welcomed Novalee, now 8 months.)
Hope there were tissues! After Baltierra read his heartfelt vows, "there wasn't a dry eye in the house," the source recalls. "It was the talk of the wedding."
Though guest Carly, now 6, wasn't a member of the wedding party, Catelynn's little brother Nicholas, 9, was a ring bearer, the source tells Radar.
Both Baltierra's father, Butch, and Lowell's mother, April— who are now divorced after a tumultuous marriage— were on their best behavior during the festivities. "There was no drama," the insider insists. "There was only crying out of happiness."

In order to insure such a drama-free event, sources tell Radar that Lowell and Baltierra refused to invite Teen Mom OG costar and Farrah Abraham, 23, despite representation from the rest of the cast. "Farrah has a tendency to make everything about her," the insider says. "If she had shown up, she would have created a spectacle."

Plus, Abraham has made mean comments about the couple's life decisions, and even called Lowell "white trash" earlier this year. Though she eventually apologized, "Farrah has made her feelings known," the source explains. "She has said terrible things about them."
So that's why her ears weren't burning! "No one talked about Farrah," the insider says.
After the party comes…bedtime? There were no wild after-parties for the responsible young parents post-reception.
All the guests had a blast. "It was an amazing event," the source sums up. "It was a long time coming!"
