“Bachelor in Paradise” alums Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt are officially married!
After welcoming their first child together last Novemberthe reality stars said “I do” Friday in an outdoor wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Fla., People reported.
Among the pair’s 100 guests were fellow “Bachelor” Nation stars Rachel Lindsay, Blake Horstmann, Alexis Waters, Kristina Schulman and Whitney Fransway.
Loch, 32, wore a custom-made Gaila Lahav gown and walked down the aisle to John Legend’s “Conversations in the Dark.”
The duo’s son, August, was dressed in a tuxedo that matched his dad’s and waited at the altar for his mama to make her grand entrance.
The bride’s stepfather served as the officiant, and the couple decided against having a traditional wedding party.
Loch and Wendt, 38, told People they wanted their big day to be “timeless” and “classy” while hoping their guests would remain “unplugged.”
They made sure to splurge on “really, really good food” and did their first dance to Dan + Shay’s “Tequila.”
“A lot of it had to do with us meeting in ‘Paradise’ and drinking tequila together for a month,” Wendt told the outlet.
In a few days, the newlyweds will be honeymooning in The Bahamas — and it’ll be the first time they leave “Auggy” since they had him.
“We’re really excited for our first kid-free vacation since he was born,” Loch said, noting that her mom will be watching the almost-1-year-old.
“Getting married and having people from the show and everything there, it’s nice to look back and reflect and think that such a small choice of us both choosing to do that show led to everything that it’s led to,” she added.
Loch and Wendt famously met on “BiP” in 2018. After a brief breakup, they reconciled andgot engagedin August 2019.
The following July, they announced they were postponing their wedding to November 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, after a nearly two-year struggle to conceive, they welcomed their baby boy that month instead.
“We had the countdown for so long,” Wendt told People, as he and his new wife agreed that it feels as though they’ve “been married for quite a bit.”
