Not only do we now know his name (Allen Yoder) but we also have wedding photos of Betsy (Elizabeth) and her very non-Amish hubby in which Betsy looks downright stunning!

Last week fans of Breaking Amish LA got a sneak peek at the guys’ “English” makeovers, but we all had to wait until Sunday night’s episode to see Iva, Betsy and Lizzie go through their transformations, which began with hair and makeup and ended up at a clothing store where the ladies had a blast trying on numerous fun — and completely non-Amish — outfits.

Last week the guys and gals of Breaking Amish: LA were getting used to their new West Coast diggs, as well as their new roommate, Abe’s brother Andrew. Next week the boys take the next essential step in the process of “Breaking Amish” and surrender to the adage “When in
