Seven years flew by so fast for Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati, who are now officially husband and wife.
And in celebration of the couple’s simple yet meaningful ceremony last Saturday, March 14, here’s a look back on their wonderful journey to forever:
Richard started courting Sarah during the taping of a series they starred in together. The two became a couple right after the series wrapped.
The couple went on their first out of the country trip together! They travelled to Sarah's homeland Switzerland, and also visited France.
Rumors surfaced that Sarah was pregnant around June 2013, but it was only a year later that they introduced their firstborn Zion to everyone.
Zion was christened on his first birthday and his parents threw him quite the party.
Just a month after they introduced their son to the world, their little family landed their first magazine cover on Smart Parenting’s July 2014 issue. The proud parents also shared their experiences as first-time parents and how they are able to find balance in their life now that they have a child.
The couple have been very open about wanting to get married. They’ve been talking about it as early as 2015.
"Of course, it's in the plan. We want to make it right and we're just actually looking for a good time. We're very happy where we are," Richard revealed in an interview on "Rated K."
They got engaged in Switzerland. Richard popped the “Will you marry me?” question in the middle of the iconic Matterhorn peak. Of course, it was a resounding “yes” for Sarah!
Richard and Sarah announced that they were expecting baby #2 with a family photo on Instagram where Sarah was seen holding their child’s sonogram.
“Our little family is growing and Zion is about to be a kuya!” Richard wrote in the caption.
They also attended their first Star Magic Ball together later that month.

Sarah gave birth to a healthy baby boy they named Kai in March 2018.
During their “ASAP Natin ‘To” guesting in October last year, the couple announced that they will hold their wedding in March 2020 in Manila.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Richard and Sarah decided to postpone their wedding to a later date to avoid putting their guests’ health at risk.

In spite of their initial announcement that they will postpone their wedding, the couple still pushed through with their union, opting for a civil ceremony attended by their closest family members.
Congratulations once again, Mr. and Mrs. Gutz! What a journey!
