Megan Mace Made a Tough Decision
Megan’s rise to insta-famous status started years ago with her & her sister, Liz, making Youtube videos of them singing. They signed their first record deal at 18 and have produced dozens of poppy hits, such as “Bad For Me” and “Back To You”. Then, true to her musical roots, Megan met the love of her life, Witt McKay, while working on a co-write together. He proposed at a recording studio in Nashville on October 4th 2019–a complete surprise to Megan.
She began posting “Wedding Wednesday” videos on her Youtube channel, with planning updates and she announced that they were going to get married the following October. However, as COVID numbers continued surging, she and her fiance made the tough call to postpone to May 2021. She shared how she felt sad, but ultimately knew it was the right call. She finally got to get married on Friday May 21, at Allenbrooke Farms–a beautiful barn glam venue outside of Nashville. Her twin sister Liz walked her down the aisle and she had a fabulous 2nd outfit for reception. It looks as if good things do come to those who wait!
Caila Quinn Had To Cancel 2 Weddings
You might remember Caila best from being a beloved contestant on Ben Higgins’ season of the Bachelor. Despite not finding love on the show, she most definitely found it elsewhere. She got engaged to Nick Burrello in January of 2020. She shared on her blog that she thought “my heart was going to explode with happiness. I love this man more than anything in the world”.
The blissful couple planned on having 2 separate weddings–one in Ohio, Caila’s home state, and one in Italy. However, on October 19th 2020, they unfortunately had to cancel both weddings. Caila shares that she ended up consulting with her dad and deciding it was the wisest decision. They then planned a 3rd wedding–this time in Sarasota, Florida. They married May 30th at the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, FL.. Caila wore a beautiful ball gown with a plunging neckline and exchanged handwritten vows underneath a floral arch, according to US Weekly. While we know it was not her original plan, it sounds like it was a stunning event!
Sarah Hyland Hopes For a Future Wedding Date
Sarah is most well known for playing Haley Dunphy in Modern Family. In 2017 she started dating Wells Adams, a former contestant on The Bachelorette and BIP. In 2019 they got engaged and set a wedding date for the following August. However, as numbers continued to rise, they decided to postpone their wedding indefinitely. “We postponed wedding planning because we want to be able to focus on what’s important right now”, she told People.com.
While they have yet to set a date for the future, they were able to celebrate their original wedding date in a fun and lighthearted way. They spent August 20th at a vineyard, dressed in white. Sarah bought a white dress off of Etsy and they took fake wedding photos with big smiles on their faces. We love and respect that she made the best decision for her friends and family. And we can’t wait to see her future nuptials!!
