At the time, COVID was just spreading out all over the world so there was no permission to cross the Canadian border. It was how their first wedding plan got revoked.

For the second time, Rose and Zach made a plan to marry at Glacier National Park in Montana. Sadly, they had to forcefully cancel the plan again due to the then-ongoing coronavirus.

To be out of all the unusual circumstances, Madden and her husband Bryan eventually searched for another place to walk down the aisle. And it was the Colchuck Lake in Leavenworth, Washington.

They eventually walked down the aisle in their mountaintop wedding surrounded by a mesmerizing view of Colchuck Lake in 2020. While Rose wore a white gown for her big day, her husband Zach looked dashing in his suit.

Their wedding was attended by their limited family and friends. After their mountaintop elopement, they had their reception on their 5-acre homestead in rural island Country.

As of now, Bryan is dating his new partner while Rose has kept herself out of the media radar.

Did Zach Bryan Cheat on On His Ex-Wife Rose?

“I knew both Zach and Rose personally… I know that I have no credibility being a random account on the internet, and I’m sure not many will believe me, but I had spoken with Rose and apparently Zach cheated on her while she was on deployment in Italy. And then continued to forcibly divorce her while she was in the middle of her deployment.”

As of now, both the former husband and wife have also deleted each other’s photos from their social media handles.
