Hosting a wedding during the pandemic
Zak recently spoke to PEOPLE about hosting a wedding during the ongoing pandemic. “In terms of the planning process, it’s been challenging, but it’s cool to see how safe you can be, while enjoying a festive occasion together,” he says at the time.
Zak first met Olivia following the tragic loss of his father back in 2014. “I was going through a challenging time in my life and she was supportive and there when I needed someone,” he says of their relationship.
“I’m so thrilled that we now have a family,” Zak adds. “I’m looking forward to building this life I’ve always wanted to have and growing together.” Congratulations to the newlyweds, best wishes for a life full of love and happiness! Cheers!
