Once upon a time, Raven Gates dated Nick Viall on his season of The Bachelor (via ET Online). Adam Gottschalk hoped to make a connection with Rachel Lindsay on her season of The Bachelorette. Each would go on to appear on Bachelor in Paradise in 2017, where they met, fell in love, and eventually got engaged in 2019 (via E! Online).

Then, came COVID-19. The couple postponed their nuptials twice according to Brides, with Raven and Adam’s wedding supposed to take place in May of 2020. But, happily, the two are now married, having tied the knot on April 16, 2021 in Dallas. 

Of course, this wedding looked different from the one they planned originally, with Raven telling Brides, “We completely replanned our wedding even down to the venue location. We wanted everyone to feel safe, which was why we only had 20 of our family and closest friends attend.”

According to People, guests took COVID tests before the ceremony, and many of them were already vaccinated.

Meanwhile, it seems all the planning and replanning was worth it, with Raven, who shared a video of the couple dancing in front of giant lit sign that said, “Adam & Raven” on her Instagram, telling People about her “I do’s”, “We’ve been waiting for this day for a long time!”

For his part, Adam said about the many-times-rescheduled wedding, “We’re just so excited that it’s finally happening. And we’re going to have a wonderful future together.”

Raven, who donned a bridal gown by Watters according to Brides, and her new hubby shared that they want to start a family soon, with Raven also noting, “I’m so excited to spend my life with Adam. He makes every day better.”

We wish the happy couple much love and joy as they embrace life as newlyweds!
