Finding their happy ending. Ex Married at first sight expert dr. Jessica Griffin married alum Jon Franceticfour years after they met on the set of the sixth season of the reality series.
“‘Jon, before you, I didn’t know that this kind of love was possible for me. You know how much I love, love – and love, love stories. They are always other people’s love stories, but never mine. Now our love story is one for the books… and it will always be my favorite love story,” wrote the psychologist, 45, via Instagram on Sunday, October 16. along with some photos from their wedding ceremony. “Those were some of the first words I shared with my HUSBAND @jon_francetic ❤️ FINALLY!!!!”
Griffin added that she married Francetić, 34, on a “perfectly magical day” surrounded by their loved ones and several MAFS alumni, including Jamie Otis Hehner, Doug Hehner, Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre.
“Thank you to ALL of you who have supported us over the past 4+ years – and a special thank you to my friend, my half brother, [Calvin Roberson] for marrying us and always having my back,” the relationship expert continued. “We’ve had an amazing weekend so far and so much fun uniting our friends, families and the #mafs family it represents – we love you all.”
The reality TV personality, for her part, he also shared some photos from the weddingsaying it was “literally a perfect day and a phenomenal weekend with the best crew anyone could ask for!”
The newlyweds met in 2018 when Griffin – who has three children from a previous relationship – offered marriage advice to Francetic and his then-wife, Molly Duff, in Season 6 of the Lifetime reality series. He and Duff (30) decided to divorce before the show’s decision day, and Francetic went public with his new romance eight months later.
“I love the ocean in the purest way I know how. It’s huge and deep and beautiful” he raved about Griffin via Instagram in October 2018. “When I’m on it, I’m free, and when I’m on it, I’m at home. When life gets chaotic, it calms me down. She is beautiful and balanced, yet relentless and powerful. I am happiest and most content when I am surrounded by the ocean. So you have to understand, I don’t see the blue of the ocean in your eyes. That is love, pure love.”
Shortly after confirming that she would not be returning to the reality show, Francetic proposed to Griffin during a trip to the Grand Canyon in April 2019. “I just love how happy she looks,” he revealed on social media at the time. “Oh, and we got engaged yesterday in the Grand Canyon! And now @dr.jessicagriffin is my foreverrrrr #shesmine #nervouswreck.”
