We didn't see this coming. Abbi Murphy announced in Monday night's episode of Below Deck that she and her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Patrik, had gotten engaged. What's more, the whole proposal went down via text message.
So now wouldn't you like to know if Abbi and Patrik actually tied the knot? Well, we're happy to report that love is not dead, and these two crazy kids did, in fact, end up getting married following this season of Below Deck.
Abbi confirmed on Instagram following Monday night's episode of Below Deck that she and Patrik, a captain who she met while working in sailing in Greece, wed at the town hall in Plymouth, Massachusetts. "My dad was there and it was a beautiful, meaningful and simple ceremony," Abbi captioned a photo taken during the big day on Instagram. "We didn’t want or need a fancy wedding because we only needed each other in that moment."
The Below Deck couple continued to do things their way at the wedding, donning homemade rope rings made by a student of her dad's girlfriend at the ceremony.
But it's definitely not about how you start, but how you finish. "Now we are happy, sailing, living in Greece," Abbi gushed in the post.
And for anyone hating on how this union came to be, Abbi had a message for you on Twitter: "Sorry not sorry the way it all happened was unconventional."
She also added on Twitter that she "wouldn’t have wanted it any other way."
Congratulations, you two!
Relive Abbi's unforgettable engagement, above. Then, head below for a first look at an all-new episode of Below Deck coming up on Monday at 9/8c.
