Quinton Strother and Brandi Broughton never made it down the aisle on the latest season of Married at First Sight, but thanks to the show’s experts and some social media savvy, the almost newlyweds still found true love.

The salesman, 29, and the professional Youtuber, 26, were matched up by Pastor Calvin Roberson, Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Rachel DeAlto for the fourth season of MAFS, but their wedding plans were called off at the last minute when Strother’s job took him outside of Miami.

“We were so disappointed because we truly believed in the potential of Quinton and Brandi as a match,” says DeAlto.

But after seeing each other on the show’s matchmaking special, Strothers tracked down Broughton on social media and the two subsequently met up. Now, the two are happily in love and planning for a future together.

“Quinton and I first saw each other on the Married at First Sight casting special,” Broughton tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Unfortunately, due to Quinton’s work schedule, he had to drop out of participating in the experiment before we could meet at the altar.”

However, Broughton says her new love “went above and beyond” to find her with the help of MAFS fans and social media. “Every time we’re together, it solidifies my faith in the experiment and my feelings for him,” she adds. “I’m so grateful to the experts and to the entire MAFS community for believing in us and constantly rooting for love.”

The duo are going strong and still envision tying the knot one day. “Soulmates don’t always cross your path,” says Broughton. “Sometimes you need a little help from your friends!”
