Congratulations are in order for Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman‘s daughter Lyssa Chapman.
Lyssa shared the news on Instagram last week that she and partner Leiana Evensen had wed in a Hawaiian ceremony in the Pacific Ocean on June 3.
“Last week Lei and I boarded a boat at 7 in the morning with 7 of our closest family members and we dedicated our love and lives to one another,” Lyssa, who has taken on her wife’s surname, wrote on Instagram.
“With our feet in the water, we connected ourselves to the power and vastness of the ocean,” she wrote. “We were hugged by the majestic Ko’olau mountain range, that will continue hugging us as we live and spend the rest of our lives together at Makaalamihi. There, with uncle David officiating, we stated our declarations of intent, said our vows and began life together OFFICIALLY as wife, and wife. 👩🏼❤️💋👩🏽”
Lyssa is the daughter of Dog and his third wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain, to whom he was married from 1982 to 1991.

I never thought I was worthy or capable of this kind of love. The vibration I feel in my body hasn’t stopped since I met her and if you’re reading this from a dark place know that your happy beginning is out there somewhere too. 🌈”
In photos from the day, both women are seen wearing white, with Lyssa in a maxi dress and her new wife wearing a white button down top paired with shorts. The couple also both wore colorful flower crowns around their heads.
