The “B-Street” Band, a Bruce Springsteen tribute band, had been tapped by Megan to play the happy day. A band member confirmed to one news organization that they’ve now been released from the commitment.

Megan’s brother was also observed  arriving at the family home.

"Megan has realized that her plans for a dream wedding to Philip are finally over.”
