On the next episode of Gold Rush, the only daughter of Minnie and Tony Beets gets married and its a total Beets crew family affair!

Walking up to the bridal cabin, papa Tony Beets tells us, “Whaddya know there’s always problems when you gotta go somewhere and you gotta be on time but they cured things on the claim because at the end of the day friends and family… that’s all you got.”

With their family and even their dog Doyle in tow and dressed in a special wedding doggie ensemble, Monica got married to her boyfriend Taylor Mayes on August 11, 2018.

The wedding ceremony took place in Dawson City, Yukon which was attended by members of the Beets family including Monica’s father Tony Beets, her mother Minnie, her brother Kevin, pet dog Doyle, and their close friends.

As we teased earlier, for the special day, Monica was radiant and dressed in a white strapless gown with a dramatic veil and her husband donned a black suit. The wedding photographs were taken by Jennifer Marie Photography.

But an episode of Say Yes to the Dress last year showed that the drama started well before the actual wedding day, as Tony helped with the dress-buying process — while failing miserably to watch his language.

In one scene, Tony told producers, “Before coming here, Minnie and Monica, they made me look at a couple of episodes because they said ‘you’re going to have to behave yourself’. So today I’m pretty much going to be on my best f***ing behavior.”

In an interview with Minnie, she was forced to stop him mid-sentence after he said, “I don’t give a s*** about the cost,” with Minnie elbowing him and saying under her breath, “Watch the language!”

In an exclusive interview with Monsters and Critics, Monica Beets previously talked at length about her family and dad Tony — including how she thinks she’s his “favorite” of all his children.

M&C: I think your father’s very progressive in his views about women and the jobs they do in mining. Can you talk about your dad?
Monica: Dad’s both. He doesn’t care what your gender is, if you’re sitting on a piece of equipment. Girls can do it just as well as men can, sometimes even better.

But if it’s heavy lifting or shoveling or labor, doesn’t matter if you’ve got five girls, the one guy is going to be taken for that because ‘it’s not a girl’s job’. If something needs to be cleaned, apparently that’s what we’re good for. He’s both. He’s old-fashioned, but…I don’t know.

M&C: It’s obvious that he’s very proud of you. It appears your dad probably loves all his children equally, but you seem to be…

Monica: I’m his favorite.

M&C: There’s no doubt that you love your dad. I was wondering if you can talk about the things that you…the qualities about your father that you really admire.

Monica: I don’t know. I admire his ambition, I really like how he works. He knows what he needs to do, he gets it done. There’s no ifs, ands, or buts. If something goes wrong, he doesn’t dawdle, he just goes on to the next plan and keeps going. He doesn’t let things get to him.

Gold Rush airs on Friday at 9/8c on Discovery
