Louis and Joshua have been in a long-distance relationship for four years
Louis and Joshua met at a bar in Los Angeles, near which Amstel lived while he was filming on Dancing with the Stars. This couple hit it off right away. They dated each other over long distances for four years from 2009 to 2013. After their long-distance relationship, Joshua moved his base permanently from Austin to Salt Lake City with Louis.
According to PEOPLE, Louis was married to his health coach friend Joshua in Sundance, Utah. The couple exchanged vows in a snowy wedding ceremony.
In an interview with the outlet, Louis said the two had always wanted a winter wedding in Sundance, Utah. He said, “We wanted a winter wedding.”
Louis also shared that Sundance was “her place,” which was like an unspoken private tradition between the duo. He said, “Sundance happens to be one of the private, romantic traditions between the two of us, so hosting the wedding there just seems appropriate.”
Louis added that their main goal was to make it a memorable experience for all their friends and not just a single decorated room. Louis revealed: “We had a whole wedding party in mumus and uggs to stamp down the snow on Sunday morning. We wanted it to be an experience, not just a decorated space.”
