"Beyond relieved that I found @withjoy to help me organize everything from guest lists, invites & rsvps, scheduling, travel info, I could go on and on," she continued. "They even have an All-in-One registry where you can ask for gifts, honeymoon and cash funds, and more, keeping track of all your gifts in one place.

"We did the tasting, we picked the cake, we did a walkthrough of the venue," she said. "Even though I have a wedding planner, I still have felt overwhelmed at times."

PEOPLE broke the news of Loch's pregnancy in May 2021. At the time, the couple revealed the milestone came after an ectopic pregnancy and a long journey with in vitro fertilization (IVF). "I've really realized that we're glass half full type of people," Loch previously told PEOPLE. "It obviously took a while [for me to get pregnant] but I think throughout every single thing, if we'd see a negative pregnancy test or something wasn't working out right or whatever, we really were good at not trying to, like, simmer in it for too long." The Bachelor Nation couple also teased their wedding plans, saying they chose to "push the wedding a full year." They initially moved it from 2020 to November 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Wendt said the duo later chose to wed in late 2022 to "try" and have a child before their big day.
