Toronto-based Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt, who found love on the fifth season of "Bachelor in Paradise" (currently streaming on HBO Max), had to postpone their wedding due to the pandemic. The couple, who got engaged in August 2019, had originally planned to wed in November 2020 and have rescheduled for 2021.
Loch and Wendt both announced the postponement on their Instagram accounts, with Loch sharing a sweet message for her future groom. “It’s been a great reminder of why we’re getting married in the first place,” she wrote. “I wouldn’t want to tackle 2020 & the rest of life with anyone else by my side. 2021 is our year @kevin.c.wendt 🤍.”
Jillian Harris & Justin Pasutto
It may not have worked out on "The Bachelorette" for Jillian Harris but she went on to find love – and a family – with fellow Canadian, former snowboarder Justin Pasutto. The engaged parents of two had plans to marry this summer but called off their celebrations amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Fraiche Food Full Hearts author shared the wedding update on her blog, JillianHarris.com, with a special message to brides who are also in her shoes. “We went back and forth on this decision and while it was tough, we knew in our hearts the best thing to do was to postpone everything due to the uncertainty of COVID,” she wrote. “I know that there are SO many brides and grooms out there who are dealing with the same situation as Justin and I and it’s so heartbreaking (my heart goes out to all of you!!) but I know eventually we will still have our day!”
