All I can say is that I’m so lucky to have someone who’s on the same page as me and I think we’re both just ready for the day to finally come ” El Moussa opened up about looking to surprise his fiancée during the process. “Heather thought we were already locked into the initial location but little did she know I was pulling some strings, working some magic, and was able to surprise her by securing our dream spot,” he wrote via Instagram in August 2021.

Heather and I have always been on the same page about the wedding since day one- we want it to be a really fun celebration but we also want it to be special and a celebration about us spending the rest of our lives with each other and as a family. There’s nothing more important than her and our family and we can’t wait for the day to reflect and celebrate that.
