Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond's firstborn daughter is officially a married woman — and no one is more proud than her celebrity chef mother!

In a blog post shared on her website Monday, Ree wrote a lengthy update on her daughter Alex's weekend wedding on the family ranch in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, to Mauricio Scott.

"It was such a meaningful, memorable night — beautiful flowers, great food, and so much fun...but what we all felt most of all was the love," Ree said in the post. "It was even more special than any of us could have hoped for."

She went on to detail every aspect of the evening. From the location on the family property, which Ree's husband Ladd chose, to why the bride and groom opted out of first look photos.

"When I thought about the wedding day, that’s what imagined: my dad getting to walk me down the aisle — especially considering his accident and everything that’s happened lately—and seeing Mauricio for the first time," Alex said in the blog post. Ladd Drummond was in an accident on the ranch while fighting a fire in March that left him in a neck brace and then kicked in the head by a cow last week ahead of the wedding.

Ladd recovered and was able to walk Alex down the aisle without his neck brace.

For her wedding gown, Alex chose a gorgeous strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and flowing skirt.

"The dress is simple but the details are so feminine and beautiful," she said in her mom's blog post. "Most importantly, it was comfortable enough to wear all night, and it twirls—which was great for the dance floor."

Alex Drummond and Scott met during their freshman year at Texas A&M University. They got engaged last August with their families "spying from a distance," the Pioneer Woman wrote at the time, "but we couldn't see much."

In a February blog post explaining why her daughter chose to get married at the family ranch, Ree expressed her love for her then-future son-in-law.

“I’m so excited for these two. I have loved watching their relationship grow, and it makes me happy that through all of it, the thing they do most consistently is laugh together," she wrote.

Paige Drummond, Alex's 21-year-old younger sister, served as the maid of honor for the weekend's ceremony. In an Instagram post, she wrote that the day was unforgettable.

"I can’t even begin to describe the feeling of standing beside Alex as she promised herself to one of the best guys I know," she wrote. "Alex, you are my biggest role model, my absolute best friend, and my inspiration to do better. I love you, I love Mauricio, and I love the sweet picture of the gospel that your marriage paints. I am soooo beyond excited for you two!! Cheers to the scotts!!!"

Ree and Ladd Drummond's other kids — Bryce, 18, and Todd, 17, as well as their foster son, Jamar, 18 — also joined in the festivities.

The Pioneer Woman wrote that her boys were "dapper as could be in their suits and tuxes. Handsome cowboys!"

The Pioneer Woman star, 52, said that while the couple — who got engaged in August 2020 — looked at several venues in Tulsa, "Alex and Mauricio ultimately decided that the ranch would be the best place for them to say 'I do.' "

"It's where Alex grew up, and it just feels like the right place," said Ree, who is also mom to sons Bryce, 18, and Todd, 17, daughter Paige, 21, and foster son, Jamar, 18.

Adding to the exciting news, Ree said that Alex, 23, got her wedding dress in Dallas last fall, which ended up being an emotional moment for the Food Network star.

"I have seen all those scenes in movies where the mom cries the moment her daughter finds 'the' wedding dress and I never thought that would be me...but someone must have been chopping onions in that bridal shop, because I'll be darned if I didn't tear up!" said Ree.

Alex and Mauricio, 23, have found their band for the reception, which will be held outdoors under an open tent, according to Ree. She also confirmed that the couple have finalized their guest list and intend to have attendees stay at her hotel, the Boarding House, bed and breakfasts in Pawhuska, or at the Frontier Hotel.

Regarding the guest list, Ree said, "It's pretty equally distributed among Alex's lifelong friends, Mauricio's lifelong friends, their friends they have together, our family, Mauricio's family (many of whom live in Mexico)...oh, and cowboys. (And they're pretty much family, so it makes sense.)"

The home cook even picked out her own dress for the wedding already — but admitted that she's "too frightened" to try it on just yet.

"But I will, because guess what? I have started exercising and eating less, which I've heard can maybe result in slimming down? I'm not sure if that's just a rumor or not, but I thought I'd give it a shot," she said.

Lastly, Ree said that her family members "are so excited" for Alex and Mauricio's wedding and are prepared for whatever may happen, likely referencing the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continuing to affect weddings around the world.

"I sense from speaking to friends and family—and just hearing from people through my blog and social media—a collective exhaustion from all the pain, change, chaos, upheaval, and loss," she said. "But I'm also starting to see a collective HOPE ❤️that things will get better sooner rather than later...and I'm embracing that feeling."

Ree announced that her eldest daughter was engaged in August, sharing a photo on social media of the happy couple. "These two are gonna have so much fun together. We love you, Alex and Mauricio! 🤠😭😍," she captioned the photo.

Alex also shared the happy news on her own social media, posting sweet photos taken of the moment Mauricio got down on one knee.

"Still waiting for someone to pinch me??!?!" she wrote alongside the post. "Mauricio Scott is the sweetest picture of God's goodness and provision. And I get to spend FOREVER with him!! I love you, fiancé!!!!!!!"

The Pioneer WomanRee Drummond's daughter returned from her honeymoon and shared photos from her wedding on Instagram. Alex Drummond is now Alex Scott after marrying Mauricio Scott on May 1 in Oklahoma.

Portions of the event and the planning were filmed for TV. The Alex Drummond wedding special will air on Food Network and Discovery + on June 26. The couple took their honeymoon in the Maldives.

"Not a day has gone by where we haven’t reflected on our wedding day and how amazingly wonderful it was in every single way," Alex Scott shares.

"EVERYTHING down to the smallest details made the day oh so special. We are so thankful not only for our amazing team of vendors, but for our parents and all of the efforts that went into making this thing happen! If you would have told me a year ago that we would get married in a tent in the middle of the ranch, I would’ve laughed ... but little did we know."

At the wedding, Alex danced with her father, Ladd, to Brooks & Dunn's hit "Cowgirls Don't Cry." It was a moment that made many in attendance cry. The 52-year-old patriarch danced without his neck brace, just weeks after breaking his neck in two places in a vehicle accident outside the family ranch. He's expected to make a full recovery.

Alex and Mauricio tied the knot in May, and their ceremony and reception were too gorgeous for words. Ree had the best time eating and dancing and only crying a little when her brother-in-law gave a speech at the rehearsal dinner. (Darn you, Tim!) Even though there have been plenty of photos of the cake and the flowers—man, oh man, those flowers!—you may still find yourselves wishing you could see more.

We are talking about The Pioneer Woman here, so hopefully there are more behind-the-scenes tidbits about the food as well. That caramelized onion and bacon mac and cheese sounded pretty amazing, after all…

Perhaps the most wished-for appearance, though, would be from Ree’s dogs. They made a little stop by the reception, and it’d be pretty fun to watch it unfold on camera. Guess we'll have to wait and see!

Ree Drummond posts preview from upcoming special about daughter's wedding

Ree Drummond has shared plenty of photos of her daughter Alex's wedding to Mauricio Scott, but a new teaser for the family's "Ranch Wedding" special gives fans an exclusive look at the work that went into the event.

Drummond narrates the short clip, which shows glimpses of the wedding party, the flower-drenched prairie venue and the chaos that led up to the picture-perfect ceremony.

"Come rain or shine or anything else that fate throws at us, this wedding is going to happen," Drummond says, after noting that the open prairie location is "at the mercy of the weather" and has no water or electricity connections.

Drummond shared more details about what fans can expect from the special in the video's caption.

"Lots of behind-the-scenes wedding fun, weather drama, and a few happy tears too," Drummond wrote. "It'll be fun to experience it all while wearing jeans and no Spanx! (P.S. I may or may not have stepped on a floor vent cover with my wedding heels and gotten stuck right before the ceremony. Why, Ree?? Why??"

The hour-long special will air on the Food Network on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. EST and will also stream on Discovery+.

Drummond wrote on her website in May that the wedding had been "even more special than any of us could have hoped for."


"It was such a meaningful, memorable night — beautiful flowers, great food, and so much fun...but what we all felt most of all was the love," Drummond wrote.

While the day might have been picture-perfect, it certainly took its toll: Drummond told TODAY Food in late May that she felt "dead for two weeks" following the event.

"My husband and I were dead for two weeks," Drummond said. "It took us about two weeks to truly feel like we were going to survive. We were just tired. ... If my second daughter wants to elope, that would be fine."

Alex \u0026 Mauricio's Unbelievable Rose Garden Wedding at Drummond Ranch (4K)

If Alex Drummond and Mauricio Scott were to sum up their wedding planning experience in one word, it would be "easygoing." Ree Drummond’s oldest daughter and her longtime "friend" turned fiancé turned husband (!!!) were aligned on almost everything, including the ceremony, the food, and the fun-filled dance party they planned for guests at Drummond Ranch. Despite a few last-minute scrambles (Mauricio's tuxedo had to be shipped overnight to make it in time!), and nonstop weather-monitoring by the mother of the bride, the wedding was everything the couple—and Ree—dreamed it would be. "It was such a meaningful, memorable night—beautiful flowers, great food, and so much fun...but what we all felt most of all was the love," Ree said. "It was even more special than any of us could have hoped for."

The ceremony was held on the ranch in a spot chosen by Ladd, with all the details curated by Ree and Alex, and perfected/executed by wedding planner Allison Butcher of Keely Thorne Events and George Catechis of The Fleuriste in Oklahoma City. It was a black-tie optional affair, and the Drummond family cleaned up nice!

Ashley Alexander

Ree chose a mother-of-the-bride dress by Jovani (she has a funny story behind this for a future post!) and maid-of-honor Paige looked amazing in her pale blue gown. Ladd, Bryce, Jamar, and Todd were as dapper as could be in their suits and tuxes. Handsome cowboys!

Ashley Alexander

But it was Alex’s bridal beauty that stole the show. The 23-year-old chose a classic updo and minimalist makeup, brought to life by Oma Salon and MLB Artistry, respectively. The timeless look complemented her stunning lace Monique Lhuillier dress. "The dress is simple but the details are so feminine and beautiful," she said. "Most importantly, it was comfortable enough to wear all night, and it twirls—which was great for the dance floor."

Grant Daniels

Mauricio didn’t get to see the fabulous gown, though, until she was walking down the aisle. That may come as a surprise to some, as taking “first look” photos before the ceremony has become increasingly popular over the years. For Mauricio, the decision to wait was a no-brainer.

"It makes that moment so much more special, seeing her for the first time at the wedding," he said. "Yeah, it made it a little harder with pictures. But honestly, at the end of the day, it’s more about the meaning of the moment than the pictures."

Alex fully supported the decision. "When I thought about the wedding day, that’s what imagined: my dad getting to walk me down the aisle—especially considering his accident and everything that’s happened lately—and seeing Mauricio for the first time."

Grant Daniels

The moment lived up to her expectations. She and Ladd made their entrance while singer Travis Linville sang "Behold," a favorite praise hymn of the bride and groom. The aisle was lined with a gorgeous array of flowersfrom The Fleuriste, which was a stunning contrast to the bright green Osage County countryside.

Alex and Mauricio then exchanged traditional vows before being pronounced husband and wife. "We wrote each other private notes that were our personal vows," Alex explained.

Grant Daniels

Once the marriage was official (yay!), the bride and groom joined their loved ones for cocktail hour on an outside deck built for this occasion, where guests enjoyed drinks designed for Alex and Mauricio: Hers was a raspberry Moscow mule, his was a margarita on the rocks (not too sweet!).

Ashley Alexander

After drinks, the reception moved underneath a billowy white sail tent, open on all sides so that guests could enjoy the views of the prairie in all directions. The decor (from George at Fleuriste) was romantic and so dreamy—greenery, ivy, and flowers wherever the eye could see.

Grant Daniels

The tent poles were covered in lattice, then adorned with more greenery and flowers, and it looked like an enchanted garden had sprung up in the middle of the ranch.

A seated dinner catered by Ree's awesome staff at The Merc included a spring field greens salad with tiny vegetables for the starter, and a steak and shrimp duet with sides like caramelized onion and bacon mac and cheese, charred veggies, and mashed potatoes. All of this was, of course, taste-tested by Ree herself beforehand.

"We trusted her," Mauricio said. "If she says it’s good, we’re good." (She is The Pioneer Woman, after all!)

Ashley Alexander

Then there was the cake, made by Amy Cakes in Norman, Oklahoma. Have you ever seen such a beauty? The six-tier showstopper was decorated with hand-made edible lace to mimic Alex's bridal gown, and had alternating white and strawberry cake with Swiss meringue buttercream, complete with—you guessed it!—more flowers. Guests could also opt for Mauricio's jersey-shaped chocolate and cookies and cream groom's cake with chocolate mousse.

The food was certainly a memorable part of the evening, but Alex and Mauricio were particularly excited to lace up their dancing shoes and enjoy a song with each other and their parents.

Their first dance song was "Beyond" by Leon Bridges. "Mauricio got us tickets to a Leon Bridges concert in Austin pretty early on in our relationship. We listen to him a lot together, and we think it’s just a sweet, romantic song," Alex said.

Ashley Alexander

For the other main man in her life (Ladd!), Alex chose "Cowgirls Don’t Cry" by Brooks & Dunn. "It’s a country song that we always listen to, it's about a girl who grew up in the country, and I just feel like it was very fitting for my relationship with my dad," she said.

Ashley Alexander

They put their own twist on it, though. "We used more of an acoustic soft version. There’s a verse in it that talks about the dad comforting his daughter after a divorce or something, so we thought that verse wasn’t very fitting for this wedding," she said, laughing. "We took that out."

Mauricio and his mom, Martha, danced to "Through the Years" by Kenny Rogers. "She’s very lyrics oriented, and she was like, 'I just think this one’s it,'" he said.

Grant Daniels

Once their sentimental moments were over, they welcomed everyone else to the dance floor. All the guests fell in love with the live band Drywater, and enjoyed fun surprises like a churro bar and light-up cowboy hats they could wear while listening to a mix of country, pop, and Latinx music.

Grant Daniels

You might think the evening ended there but you’d be wrong! The celebrating continued at P-Town Pizza, where everyone was treated to pizza, wings, all kinds of snacks, a DJ, and a light up dance floor.

"Traditionally, Mexican weddings usually go pretty late. They can go until 6 a.m., until the break of dawn," Mauricio said. "It was a nice twist to have an after-party."

Only when their second party ended was their best day ever truly over. But Alex and Mauricio are just getting started.

Ashley Alexander

After their honeymoon in the Maldives—where they plan to "lay on a beach and do nothing"—the Scotts will return to Dallas. They’re moving into their first home together, and they look forward to enjoying all the everyday normalcy of married life.

"It’ll be really fun to come home to each other at the end of the day, and get to cook together and share meals together," Alex said.

Grant Daniels

They’ll continue to work, and go back to Oklahoma to help Ree film The Pioneer Woman. In their spare time they’re looking forward to having friends over to their new house, trying out restaurants around town, and playing on their Monday night soccer team.

"We’re going to get back into real life, except we get to do it together," Alex said.

Mauricio adds, "I’m looking forward to living together, doing life together. It’s exciting!"
