Hoda Kotb Canceled Her Destination Wedding—Here's Where She and Fiancé Joel Schiffman Will Likely Tie the Knot
Though Hoda Kotb and Joel Schiffman have their sights set on a destination wedding, they are turning plans to say "I do" closer to home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple got engaged back in November 2019 while on a beach vacation in Mexico - and originally planned to return there next month to tie the knot. "It was supposed to happen in November and Maria Shriver called me. She says, 'It's still on my calendar. Is it over?' I go, 'Yeah, it's over! I thought I called you!' "Kotb told the people.
She added that her new plans will be very different - and that they will need to stay local instead of going abroad. "I think we'll do it in the summer," said the host of the Today Show. Kotb also noted, "Of course it's going to be a beach wedding, and we'll probably do it somewhere near New York."

Kotb said she won't stray from her big day at home - which is now slated for 2021 - and that she and Schiffman are planning a micro-wedding this time around. "I think just because, why should we [travel] considering what is happening? And I don't know how fast people can travel again," she said. "So I think it could be a little more intimate than I just expected because of that."
While their wedding plans have changed time and again during the COVID-19 outbreak, one thing has always been constant during the quarantine: their relationship. Kotb knows she is marrying her perfect partner. "I know that and that has been vindicated. I think sometimes when you are in tight circumstances you wonder like a lot is being revealed. He's a world class dad and one of the nicest people I have ever known and you can see how someone is doing when under pressure, "said Kotb of her fiancé. "We've had good times and every relationship goes through its valleys and we both seem to have had our valleys before we met. So I'm sure there are valleys ahead of us. But at that moment he was really amazing."
