January 17, 2022

Congratulations to the happy couple! Bear and Raiven, who share 1-year-old son River, tied the knot surrounded by friends and family on the evening of Sunday, January 16.

"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," said Bear. "She is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen and still takes my breath away!"

The day was bittersweet for the groom, with Bear's father Billy Brown passing nearly a year ago.

"I only wish Da had of 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."

Raiven, who wore a white lace gown and beautiful veil, was thrilled to stand by Bear in a maroon suit and bow tie.

"Was so very happy to have our friends and family that were able to make it," said Raiven. "Bear looked very handsome and I’m very grateful for the family we’ve made."

Raiven has previously gushed about raising her son with Bear, who had to delay meeting his son for the first time due to complications stemming from COVID-19.

"I can’t imagine a better feeling than watching someone love our son as much as I do," said Raiven. "It was like he had met him from day one – they just got along immediately. Like he just knew.”
