The couple got engaged in August 2015 after nearly two years of dating. The Safe Haven actress shared the story of the proposal shortly after it happened. “We were at home, romantic and relaxed, which is perfectly very ‘us.’” she wrote on her personal website at the time. “We stood on the deck, watching the sun set over the lake and listening to our favorite songs. Not even for a second did I expect that beautiful, serene scene was about to become one of the most meaningful moments of our lives.”

“I was so taken aback when Brooks got down on one knee I completely blacked out! It was like a rush of heat and a wave of uncontrollable emotion swept right through my body. I didn’t have any words at first (me! no words!)” she added. “All I could do was explode into his arms and experience pure joy from head to toe.”
