"It literally took one day. It was planned overnight," she shared.
According to the actress, she and Richard realized that they have to push through their wedding even with a simpler rite because getting married was always their dream.
"Kasi we've been together for almost eight years and we've always wanted to do this,” the actress said.
“We felt like, 'You know what let's do it pa rin.' We love each other so much and despite what’s happening, it's really for us and it's about time despite what is happening."
Sarah also lauded her team for organizing the intimate wedding in such a limited time.
“We are truly lucky to have an amazing team behind us.”
The celebrity couple tied the knot on March 14.
She also described how she felt when they had to postpone their dream wedding because of the COVID-19 spread.
“It wasn’t obviously joyful. I mean, I was shocked and I was sad because I’ve always dreamt of having a fairy tale wedding and wearing my wedding dress and walking down the aisle with my dad and meeting mom and then seeing Chard and all that. So of course, I cried.”
It can be recalled that Sarah and Richard postponed their grand wedding celebration, following the health authorities’ advice to avoid large gatherings due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
