Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati's wedding will not push through this Saturday, March 14, due to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
The couple made the announcement on Instagram today, March 12. In the caption, Richard and Sarah explained that they are choosing to prioritize the health of their loved ones, which is why they’re pushing their wedding to a later date.
"As much as we want to celebrate our love with our family and friends, in light of the recent situation, we have decided to postpone our wedding as we do not want to put anyone at risk," they wrote.
"Thank you so much to those who flew in and to everyone who worked so hard for our special day. We only wish good health for everyone and we hope to celebrate with you as soon as things get better,” they continued.
Just last week, March 4, the couple released their breathtaking underwater prenup photos taken in El Nido, Palawan.
Sarah also recently held a bachelorette party with her bride squad in Siargao.
