Reverend Marty Gute, the minister at the Catlettsburg Wedding Chapel, revealed he received a phone call from an MTV producer on Tuesday asking him to sign a waiver allowing the network to film in the chapel.
“When I asked what was going on, they said it was for the Leah Simms wedding, and that name didn’t ring a bell at first,” Gute said. But Gute’s wife and daughter knew exactly who Leah was when he went home and told them the news.
Gute said the wedding was casual and there were only around 20 people in attendance, including the cameramen and show’s producers.
Leah’s mother and Jeremy’s mother both served as witnesses at the small ceremony. Messer’s 2-year-old twin daughters, Aliannah and Aleeah were also in attendance.
The camera crew recorded Messer and Calvert as they obtained their marriage license and wedding rings before the wedding.
The reverend said, “Everybody was happy and joyful and took a ton of pictures.”
“I think they wanted to keep it out of the news, but the producer said he knew it would hit Facebook soon,” Gute said. “He asked my daughter not to tweet about it, though.”
This is the second marriage for the 19-year-old reality star, who was previously married for six months to her baby-daddy, Corey Simms.
Earlier this year, Jeremy and Leah were reportedly expecting a set of twins but Leah suffered a miscarriage.
Messer said she feels Calvert is the one for her, explaining, “We have a really good connection. It’s different from Corey and my relationship, because we were kinda like forcing it… With Jeremy, you know when you’re supposed to be with somebody and you’re not.”
We bet we will get to see the wedding ceremony when “Teen Mom 2” returns next season.
