Dog the Bounty Hunter's daughter and her partner shared glimpses of their special celebration on Instagram for fans to have a preview of their wedding.
LYSSA CHAPMAN AND LEIANA EVENSEN HAD A BEACH WEDDING
In one of Chapman's posts, she and Evensen stood holding hands by the calm ocean to exchange vows. She wrote:
“With our feet in the water, we connected ourselves to the power and vastness of the ocean. We hugged by the majestic Ko'olau mountain range that will continue hugging us as we live and spend the rest of our lives together.”
Chapman also detailed that they rode a boat at seven in the morning to reach the location along with their seven closest family members.
Although the skies were partly clear, it drizzled upon them later on. The couple also had a source of entertainment through a school of baby sharks that passed by their venue.
"We planned and kept this day a secret, and that would not have been possible without the help of Wesley," she added.
Chapman looked breathtaking in a long white gown with ruffles along the neckline and a flower crown on her head. Meanwhile, Eversen looked fresh in a white long-sleeved button-down top and shorts.
HOW DID LYSSA CHAPMAN AND LEIANA EVENSEN MEET?
Evensen also shared photos from the celebration on Instagram, alongside a lengthy caption of their love story. She wrote:
“Lyssa and I met when I came into her shop as a client. We both remained professional, of course, but could not deny the instant magnetism we had toward each other.”
In 2017, the pair got engaged during a trip to Seattle. Chapman didn't hesitate to share the good news with her Instagram followers and said she was still in shock.
By then, Chapman had two children from previous relationships, Abbie Mae and Madalynn Grace. Evensen became close to both girls, happily accepting her into their family.
WAS DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER AT LYSSA'S WEDDING?
Unfortunately, Chapman's father was not present during the ceremony. It was difficult for the reality star to return to Hawaii after his wife, Beth Chapman's death in 2019.
"He was, of course, on the phone with me all morning and during," the bride said. "We FaceTimed him a bunch. He was there in spirit and also electronically."
Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman previously tied the knot with Francie Frane in Colorado. The pair married amidst Duane's family feud but wanted to settle down with his then-fiancée. The couple both lost their previous spouses around the same time.
