We're so curious to find out how Torrance proposed? What were your favorite moments from the proposal?
There were some parts of he proposal that Torrance and I wanted to keep private, but what I will say that is he did propose with one of our cats, so that was really really cute. Obviously cat had no idea what was going on, but that was still such a sweet moment.

Would you consider yourself and traditional or a contemporary bride?
I'm kind of mixing box. I'm very traditional in terms of the ceremony and reception. It's an interesting question because I'm trying to mix both and find ways to make the wedding a bit more modern, but still retain its sense of tradition.

What's has been your biggest wedding planning lifesaver?
We had to hire a wedding planner since there was just no way it would have worked out. If I had to do it on my own a venue wouldn't have even been booked by now. The wedding planner saved the day for sure, especially with my and Torrance's schedule, and with both of us traveling all over the world. Some of them are not cheap, but it's an expense that you will be happy with in the end.

How did fans react to the news that you were getting married?
They were super anxious to find out when we were getting married and what we are doing for the ceremony. We've been together now for six years. When we got engaged, there was just so many comments that were like "Well, it's about damn time!" But they have been really, really excited. And we don't want to give too much away so that when we do get married it will be a huge surprise for them.
