With the rise of COVID-19 cases in the country, the couple made a difficult decision to postpone their church wedding, as they "do not want to put anyone at risk." 

The ceremony may have not turned out the way they planned, but as Richard's brother Mond Gutierrez shared on his Instagram account, it became even "more meaningful."
