Mari Pepin turned 26 over the weekend.
To celebrate, Mari was hanging out with her BIP fiancé, Kenny Braasch, having dinner and trying new desserts.

Mari Pepin took to Instagram to share photos from her 26th birthday dinner.
In the photos, Mari wore a long-sleeved blue sweater and fresh-faced natural makeup as she smiled with her signature dark locks that hung down and were wavy.
Mari also shared a photo of herself sitting in an alcove at Chili’s restaurant with her fiancé, Kenny Braasch, who was wearing a leather jacket with a red check flannel and white t-shirt underneath.
Mari posed in front of a melted chocolate lava cake, which she revealed to be her favorite dessert for several of the photos.
Mari captioned the post: “TWENTYSIX (& a day) Amazing dinner last night at Mastro’s and then topped it off with @kennybraasch10 First Melten Cake (my favorite dessert in the whole wide world) today! He liked it swipe for proof lol.”
Closing her caption by mentioning the Easter holidays, Mari wrote: “Thanks for all the love yesterday! and Happy Easter!”
Kenny Braasch took to his Instagram Stories to share his thoughts on Mari’s birthday meal.
Kenny shared a clip of Mari enjoying her meal and wrote, “Expensive dinner last night for her birthday when I could have just taken her to Chilis.”
It seems that Mari was encouraged by both her birthday meal and the love she received from Kenny, friends, family and other Bachelor Nation stars.
Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch got engaged on Bachelor in Paradise
Mari and Kenny became one of Bachelor Nation’s success stories when the couple met in Season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise.
Kenny and Mari’s BIP journey hasn’t always been smooth sailing. The two broke up briefly and Kenny found himself in a chaotic love square with Mari Pepin, Demi Burnett and Tia Booth.
However, Kenny and Mari eventually found each other again and fell deeper in love.
At the end of the season, Kenny and Mari were one of three couples who got engaged and have remained engaged Serena Pitt and Joe Amabile.
Kenny and Mari were in the Wedding planning processand it’s likely that more details about their nuptials will come to light over time.
Bachelor in Paradise is currently on hiatus on ABC.
