"Love Is Blind" stars Nick and Danielle spoke about their experience getting married on the show.
Speaking on Nick's podcast, they said they had to work their corporate jobs before the ceremony.
Nick and Danielle separated in 2022 but have since reconnected as friends.
The former couple got married in season two of the Netflix series, but ultimately parted ways just over a year later after Ruhl filed for divorce in August 2022, People reported at the time.
Speaking on the latest podcast episode released Tuesday, Ruhl reflected on their nuptials and said she and Thompson had to work their corporate jobs on their wedding day because they had run out of vacation days after "taking random days off" to film the show.
"I just remember I was so irritable that day," Thompson said. "The producer kept asking, 'Where's your head at?' I'm like, 'It's in this meeting I'm about to hop into.'"
"It's like, 'What are you thinking?' I'm thinking that I've got a meeting with my PR agency at work, that we've got some big decisions to make," he added.
The couple also said on the podcast they were unsure if they were going to say yes at the altar, but ultimately decided together that they would go through with the nuptials over text messages exchanged just minutes before the ceremony.
"We had told my friends and family that it was going to be a no," Ruhl said, adding that the original plan was to stay engaged and continue their relationship after the show was done filming.
"Wedding day, I was no for most of the day," Thompson said.
"I thought to myself, seeing you in your wedding dress, being walked down the aisle by your dad in front of the whole world and saying no, I didn't want to do that to you, and I didn't want to do that to our relationship because I knew we loved each other," Thompson said.
The couple said that while stars of the show aren't usually allowed to have their phones with them before their weddings, they convinced production to allow them to keep their phones so they could text one another.
"So we texted, and we're like 'Okay, yes, let's do this. Both of us want it, why are we like, fighting it?" Thompson said.
The wedding was shown in the season two finale, and the couple admitted in confessionals after the ceremony that they hadn't been sure what the outcome would be.
"This was the last thing that I thought would happen, and it happened," Ruhl said after the wedding. "We love each other, and we care about each other more than we could ever express to anyone."
Thompson and Ruhl, and Iyanna McNealy and Jarrette Jones, were the only couples to get married in the second season of "Love Is Blind." McNealy and Jones also announced they were planning to divorce on August 2022 via an Instagram post.
Representatives for Netflix and Ruhl did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. Thompson declined to comment further.
