In the recent one-hour season finale of “Bringing Up Bates” on UPtv, viewers watched Kelton Balka surprise Josie Bates with a romantic proposal in Utah. Friday afternoon, the young couple were married at Cove Lake State Park in Tennessee with the Smoky Mountains serving as a picturesque backdrop. The sun periodically peeked out from behind a cloud during the wedding, but the one thing that shone through the entire time was the couple’s love for each other.

View photos — including exclusive pictures — of the wedding day, and hear from the Bates family siblings as they discuss the beautiful ceremony and offer best wishes to the newly married couple. Watch the wedding in a future episode of “Bringing Up Bates” — Season 8 premieres Thursday, January 3 at 9 PM ET on UPtv!
