In a surprising turn of events, "Summer House" stars Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard have officially called off their engagement and canceled their wedding plans. The couple, who had been set to tie the knot in Mexico this fall, have been in the limelight for their whirlwind romance, which culminated in an engagement in August 2022.

In a heartfelt letter addressed to family and friends, Radke, 38, expressed his anguish over the decision. "Words cannot possibly express how difficult the last two weeks have been for Lindsay and I," he penned. The letter, which was obtained by PEOPLE, further elaborated on the couple's struggles, stating, "There have been a lot of false narratives and misunderstandings that have made this all the more painful." Radke also acknowledged the pain and confusion this decision might cause to their guests, especially those who had already made arrangements for the wedding.

The couple's journey has been nothing short of a roller coaster. After their engagement in August, Hubbard celebrated her bridal shower at Cathédrale restaurant in New York City. The event was attended by her close friends and "Summer House" co-stars. Hubbard had expressed her gratitude for her friends, stating, “They've been in my life for such a long time and they've been on this crazy roller coaster of a journey to find love with me right by my side through every single relationship.”

Radke's surprise appearance at the end of the bridal shower had been a highlight, with him later posting on Instagram about Hubbard, "You are going to make such a beautiful bride." At the time, Hubbard had shared her excitement about the upcoming wedding, mentioning that they were just three months away from the big day.

However, not everyone was on board with the couple's swift decision to get engaged. Some of their co-stars felt that the engagement came too quickly. Addressing this during the seventh season of "Summer House," Radke had said, "There's no playbook. There's no rules about when you're supposed to get engaged. I'm just going for what feels right in my heart."

The couple's relationship had been marked by several significant moments. Hubbard had previously shared her journey of freezing her eggs and had praised Radke for his unwavering support during the process. She had also opened up about a past miscarriage with former "Winter House" co-star Jason Cameron, highlighting Radke's compassionate response.

The news of the couple's split has undoubtedly sent shockwaves through their fanbase. As the details continue to unfold, many are left wondering what led to the sudden decision and what the future holds for both Radke and Hubbard.
