Paul Peden and Micah's bridesmaid, Shelby, did not like each other from the first time they met. Shelby even tried to convince Micah that she deserved better. Later, Shelby was seen smiling after Paul said "No" at the altar and canceled their wedding. Additionally, here are some thoughts from TikTok and Reddit users about their split.
Netflix's Love Is Blind, created by Chris Coelen, is a reality dating show in which a group of singles from the same metropolitan area date each other for several days in separate purpose-built pods where they can only talk to each other without seeing what their partner looks like. They meet in person and go on dates after they get engaged without seeing each other to see if they want to take the next big step.
In season 4, a similar format is used as new singles enter the pod and form a strong bond before meeting in person. The fourth installment of the show, hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, features singles from Seattle hoping to find love by the end of the season.
We now know that Micah Lussier and Paul Peden did not say their vows at the altar, and while it's unclear whether the two are still on good terms, the internet believes there was something going on between Peden and Micah's bridesmaid. There is a scene after the couple attempted to reconcile the post-wedding scene disaster in which one of Micah's bridesmaids is smiling, giving Paul an interesting look, and the groom is inappropriately brushing against her. So, what really happened, let's take a look.
Micah’s Bridesmaid, Shelby, Was Smiling and Claimed to Be Relieved After Paul Peden Said “No” at the Altar!
Fans of Love Is Blind season 4 were outraged after Micah Lussier's (@micah.lussier) bridesmaid Shelby admitted she was relieved when Paul Peden (@paulpeden) left her best friend at the altar. Later, Micah surprised the congregation by asking Peden to reveal his answer first before her partner broke her heart by saying he couldn't marry her.
As Micah left the wedding in tears, her best friend Shelby, who has previously expressed her displeasure with Paul, was seen smiling and saying she was relieved by the turn of events. During the ceremony, she admitted she wished she was 'way drunker' before laughing with her friends while Micah sobbed.

However, this wasn't the first time she had expressed her disapproval of it. Shelby had previously told Micah during a drunken night out that the relationship between her and Paul wasn't it. She told Micah: 'I think you deserve better. You're meant to have the best wedding of your life. You're meant to have all this, and this isn't it.'
The ceremony became very tense during the wedding episode when Micah asked Paul to reveal his answer first, as she appeared to be unsure about his answer. Despite his declaration of love for the blonde beauty, he stated: 'I don't think that we can choose each other right now. I think that we're not there.'
Before running up the aisle in tears, the bride admitted she predicted the heartbreaking outcome and never felt safe in the relationship. After they split up, Paul explained in an interview that he didn't feel his love was reciprocated.
Micah and Paul's journey on the show were not without bumps, with Micah first getting to know both Paul and Kwame in the pods. Micah then decided to cut off all contact with Kwame, while Paul ended his contact with Amber, and the two eventually got engaged before meeting in person.
During their vacation to Mexico, Micah had a flirtatious conversation with former flame Kwame around the pool, and they appeared to be heading towards a love triangle, but the pair quickly denied any romantic feelings between them. When season four premiered, Micah told Us Weekly, "When I chose Paul, I chose Paul all the way and I never regretted that or have looked back on it."
The couple then moved in together and had disagreements about where they would live, Paul's wardrobe, and their closet space, but they overcame the difficulties to continue planning their wedding. Micah then had a very successful meeting with Peden's mother, whereas he had a less successful time with his fiancée's friends, with to-be bridesmaid Shelby not warming to him and insisting their romance wasn't it.

Despite the fact that it is unknown whether they are still together, they continue to follow each other on Instagram. They do not appear to have liked each other's recent posts, and Micah does not appear to follow his cooking Instagram page. Furthermore, Paul and Micah will return to the screen for Love Is Blind: The Live Reunion to reflect on their time on the show and reveal what happened after the shocking wedding.
Before the weddings episode aired, Peden posted a cooking video on TikTok (@paulpremium), prompting fans to wonder if they could have rekindled their romance. The video showed Peden making cioppino, but fans, especially Reddit users, thought they heard Micah in the background, implying they were still together. Later, fans also took to the comments section after hearing a woman's voice in the background, with one writing: '100% Micah's voice in the background.'
