The couple shared the proposal details with People. On August 28th, the couple planned a sunset picnic – and Loch had no idea that Wendt had a ring in his pocket the whole time! The couple shared that Wendt restarted his playlist *multiple* times to make sure that “Tequila” by Dan + Shay began playing as he began his speech! *SWOON!!!* We LIVE for little details this!

08.28.19. I could have sworn the world stood still in this moment. A moment I’ll never forget. Just you + me. @kevin.c.wendt you’ve taught me to love, learn and grow and I can’t believe you’ve chosen me to spend this crazy life with. Wonder if I’ll ever stop smiling? Probably not. In this together, forever. ♥️ #sugar ?: @allyandnicholas
Wendt shared with People, “I actually forgot what I said. I just remember, it was a no-brainer to marry her. I see her more as my family than any kind of girlfriend, and I just knew I couldn’t ever let her go.” We’re not crying, YOU’RE crying!
And the ring? Well, Wendt proposed with a custom, cushion-cut diamond ring from Wendt’s Jewellery, established in 1884 by his great-great-grandfather Charles Wendt in Mildmay, Ontario. The beautiful ring is extremely sentimental for his family, who’ve all proposed with beautiful bling from that same shop – for the past 135 YEARS!
We couldn’t be happier for the couple! Congratulations Kevin and Astrid!
