Meaghan Rath and Jack Cutmore-Scott are married

Rath and Cutmore-Scott were married in a private backyard ceremony on May 16.  The couple had pushed their wedding amid COVID-19 safety measures. But in an Instagram post, Rath shared pictures from her wedding and revealed that the two kept their original date.

“I wanted to share a bit of my happiness with you all,” she wrote in the caption. “May 16th, 2020 was the day we had planned for our wedding. After the pandemic forced us to postpone, the unknown left us feeling pretty powerless over this event that was meant to be completely ours- a celebration of how we felt about each other.”

“We decided that at the end of the day, especially in a time when the world is in such pain- all that matters is the people you love,” Rath added. “So on May 16th, 2020, we eloped in our backyard, in our treehouse, where he proposed to me.”

In the post, Rath is wearing a beautiful short white lace dress and veil with black high-heel boots. “It was my favorite day of all time,” she wrote of her wedding, as she thanked her friends and family for attending via Zoom and driving by in celebration. “Life is short, go be happy.”

Meaghan Rath and Jack Cutmore-Scott will star together in a new CBS series 

Their wedding isn’t the only exciting news the couple has announced this year. Rath and Cutmore-Scott will star side-side in the upcoming CBS comedy, Jury Duty. The series follows a group of jurors who find it hard to agree on anything. 

On the show, Rath will play Jen, a sarcastic and neurotic book editor who is high maintenance and single. Her real-life husband, Cutmore-Scott will take on the role of Hutty, a friendly alternate juror who’s good at taking the lead. 

There’s no official premiere date set for Jury Duty. But when TV studios and productions do begin to reopen, CBS will likely update their fall and spring schedules accordingly.
