Breaking Amish: LA Betsy’s wedding photos with husband Allen

Who is Beaking Amish LA Betsy's husband?

In the official TLC bio for Breaking Amish LA‘s Betsy it describes her as “recently married” and in the premiere episode she reveals, “I ended up getting married and left my parents’ home. I figured if you get married, everything’s perfect. I had no clue.” In a conversation (spoken in Pennsylvania Dutch) with another young woman, the issue of whether or not Betsy’s husband would object comes up, to which Betsy replies in a voice-over, “My husband cannot stop me. I won’t stay.” (You can watch the clip here.)

That was pretty much all we knew about Betsy’s husband… until now! His name is Allen Yoder and he and Betsy (which is short for Elizabeth) got married on November 17, 2012 in Millersburg, Ohio. Betsy’s name at the time was Elizabeth Byler — and yes, that is the same last name as Rebecca Byler from the original Breaking Amish, but that is not uncommon in the Amish community where there are a number of common surnames (like Byler and Yoder). I am guessing her name now is Elizabeth Yoder.

As you can tell by these great wedding photos of Betsy and Allen, she was no stranger to makeovers! And I have to say, whoever handled her makeup and hair for the wedding did a much better job than the salon on the show!

Betsy is downright gorgeous don’t you think? And I assume by Allen’s lack of facial hair and trimmed ‘do that he isn’t a practicing Amish — and when I revisited what Betsy said in the premiere I realized she never actually said her husband had a problem with her going to Los Angeles, merely that she wasn’t going to let him stop her.

Allen even still has one of their wedding photos as his profile picture on Facebook:

In April, Allen posted a photo of a laptop, a beer, and some papers on a table beside a hotel pool surrounded by palm trees and captioned it, “My awesome poolside office today=) lol” So perhaps he got a trip to LA out of it too? Maybe we will be seeing him on the show soon, like Iva’s fiance? Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, here are a couple of fun before and after shots of Betsy — with the wedding photo being the actual “before” shot and Betsy in her Amish clothes being “after” in what amounts to a TLC makeunder:

And if you want to get Allen and Elizabeth a late wedding gift, then check out the couple’s wedding registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I’m guessing they wouldn’t refuse a nice $210 Kate Spade New York Larabee Road Platinum 13″ Serving Platter, even if it was nine months after their big day! 🙂

UPDATE – We’ve found some pre-show photos of Breaking Amish LA siblings Sam and Lizzie Stoltzfus! Click here to check those out, including a racy shot of Lizzie in a sexy minidress and thigh-high boots and Sam getting friendly with a beer as well as a Romanian gal!

  • Shoofly Solomon

    Wouldn’t be surprised that she’s related to Rebecca

    • Rochelle Allgire

      There’s someone on Amish Mafia who has that last name as well. I just can’t remember who right off the top of my head.

      • KElly

        well shes adopted so. Looks wouldnt matter.

    • Mephistopheles Lux

      I thought she looked like rebecca from day 1.

  • Mkmb782

    I thought they weren’t supposed to take pictures, didn’t have electricity for Facebook pages and weren’t supposed to dress immodestly or wear makeup. So, she had already gone English before the show?

    • LaLa84

      Yes. Apparently most (or maybe all) of the cast members have been living English before they were cast on the show. (Which is why I quit watching)

    • Rochelle Allgire

      She may have. But no one ever said her husband was ever Amish in the first place either.

      • Mephistopheles Lux

        They show her “husband” tonight, They portrayed some big dude in Amish clothes. The show is phonier than Hillary Clinton’s smile.

  • Josie

    Her husband looks a little bit like Leah’s husband Jeremy from Teen Mom 2.

  • DeeDeDee

    Kind of looks like Chris Crocker with a wig.

  • Miss-Mandy Lynn

    i thought amish didnt believe in pictures?

  • Asia

    She’s already been out of the Amish. I’m originally from Stark County, Ohio, neighboring Holmes County where Millersburg is located, as well as most of my family. My sister is friends with Betsy and Betsy is still with her husband(as in married, she is filming for the show) living an ordinary ‘english’ life. The closest thing to “real” on that show is that they were ONCE in the Amish and that they speak dutch. I think my sister said at one point before this Breaking Amish came out, that Betsy was going to audition for Amish Mafia.

    • Asia

      I actually recognize the location the pictures were taken at.

    10/5/13: Just how stupid & gullible does TLC think we TV viewers are? In this age of MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, texting & other ways of instantaneous communication, it would only be a matter of time before the fraud, phoniness & hypocricy would be EXPOSED! Did TLC seriously believe no one would or even could come foward to set the record straight about thus show’s actors? How naïve of them. Of all the websites I’ve been to while investigating this show, Starcasm’s website has been the most informative & basically “says it all.” The old saying, “one picture is worth a thousand words” most certainly rings true about this bunch of phony opportunists! Yes, Betsy & Allen’s wedding PHOTos G
