The big day is finally (almost) here! We'll get a front-row seat to Reagan Charleston and Reece Thomas' stunning southern wedding, which took place back on December 9, 2018, in the upcoming Southern Charm New Orleans Season 2 finale on Sunday at 9/8c.

It's been quite a journey to get to this point. Reagan went from finalizing her divorce from Jeff Charleston to getting engaged to Reece to finding out she and her fiancé were expecting their first child all in the course of one season, all leading up to their nuptials in the finale.

Reagan explained why she and Reece were so eager to head to the altar during a recent interview with PEOPLE. “We wanted to get married and we wanted to start a family together, but we didn’t realize how quickly we would be pregnant,” she said.

“As soon as we found out we were expecting, we said, ‘We have to put things in overdrive and plan our wedding,’” she added. “Both of our moms were adamant we get married before, that’s a very southern thing, and even though I wanted to enjoy the party and some champagne on my wedding day, I also wanted to get married before I started showing. So we jumped in.”

Though the couple put their wedding together fairly quickly, as we've seen this season of Southern Charm New Orleans, Reagan said it turned out to be a "perfect day," one that she is excited to see onscreen when the episode airs. “Being on a reality show, some of the moments you relive are not the best,” she shared. “So being able to do this makes all the rest of it a [bit] sweeter. “ 

As for Reece, it seems like the wedding couldn't have come soon enough. "I am the luckiest man in the world!! I got to marry my best friend and soul mate. The only person that can tolerate me on a daily basis lol," he recently gushed on Instagram. "She’s not just the prettiest lady in the world she’s also one of the most driven people I’ve ever met. She is an unstoppable force."

Reagan and Reece's wedding was just the start of a beautiful new chapter for the couple. They would go on to welcome daughter Reece Ellis Thomas on June 12.
