by Madison Miller

After a lot of on-and-off between Bear Brown and Raiven Adams, the two finally tied the knot. The two first met while filming the popular reality TV series, “Alaskan Bush People.”

The two got married on Sunday while surrounded by some of their close family and friends. Also present was their adorable 1-and-a-half-year-old son, River.

The exciting ceremony brought the entire family together. Sadly, the patriarch of the family, Billy Brown, doesn’t get to see his son get married. He passed away in February at the age of 68 from a seizure.

His absence was felt by his family, especially Bear Brown.

“It feels really good to be a married man, I’ve loved Raiven a long time and it’s a honor and a privilege to finally call her my wife. She is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen and still takes my breath away! I only wish Da had been there, but I know he was watching from the best seat! I look forward to building a life, a family and a home with Raiven, she’s the love of my life and my heart belongs to her and her alone,” Bear Brown said to People.

It’s been a difficult couple of years for the “Alaskan Bush People” family. Not only did they lose Billy Brown, but a fire also destroyed a lot of their land. Their mother, Ami Brown, has also had her share of health problems that caused the family to move to Washington state.
