This couple first got together in the year 2014 and after a steady 3 years of dating, they took their romance a notch higher. In February 2017, Harmeyer announced via social media that they had gotten engaged. Interestingly, his boss Howard Stern, though thrilled by the news, expressed his displeasure over the fact that he had chosen to share his happy news first on social media rather announcing it on their radio show. Of course, it was all a joke.
In the build-up to their wedding ceremony, JD Harmeyer had a rather quirky on-air bachelor party. The famous radio producer and his bride eventually tied the knot on August 25, 2018. Theirs was an intimate ceremony held at the mountains just outside Las Vegas with only 8 guests present. Strangely, none of Harmeyer’s co-workers from The Howard Stern Show was invited to the wedding but a few of them still got him presents.
