Astrid Loch & Kevin Wendt had a vision for their big day
Wendt and Loch wanted their wedding to feel timeless, stylish and modern, they told People. They held their wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate and the space was filled with long farmhouse-style tables, flower arrangements, candles and fairy lights. Acoustic music was played throughout the wedding and cocktail hour, and the newlyweds chose not to have a bridal shower with bridesmaids and groomsmen. However, his brother and sister were right by her side to help with some tasks. The ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ couple’s son, August, wore a tuxedo like his father and stood at the altar as the couple exchanged vows.
Loch wore a Gaila Lahav wedding dress and her mother walked her down the aisle. Loch’s stepfather officiated at the wedding and the couple exchanged vows of their own. They included a nod to their Bachelor in Paradise summer by using Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” for their first dance, and they gave all wedding guests small shots of tequila after the song played. Dinner included shrimp cocktail, prime rib, and late-night snacks like a candy station, sliders, and mac-and-cheese bites. They had a cake but didn’t do the typical cake cutting, and they also chose not to do a bouquet or garter toss.

A handful of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” personalities celebrated tying the knot with Loch and Wendt. Guests included former “Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay and her husband Bryan Abasolo, Blake Horstmann and his girlfriend Giannina Gibelli, and Alexis Waters and Kristina Schulman.
