Sharing the vows she read to Powell at their nuptials, along with an image of the couple at their wedding, Irwin told fans in April that she aims to "hold onto love no matter what the world throws our way."
“Chandler, When I went to write my vows I found I couldn’t stop writing them. I started by sharing all the ways you make my life beautiful and wrote close to a thousand words,” she shared on Instagram at the time. “Then I moved on to write about what an extraordinary person you are and I needed a new pen. Finally I wanted to share all my hopes for the future and I ran out of notebook paper.”
