With Chris Pratt's recent engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger, the race is on for the couple to plan their dream wedding. We know this couple moves fast, so we can expect this celebrity wedding blowout to start coming together quickly. In fact, there's a lot we already know through reports from people close to the couple, and announcements from Chris and Katherine themselves. Here's the scoop so far:
They Want a Summer Wedding
Chris and Katherine are reportedly going for the traditional summertime wedding, and they want it to happen soon. That leads us to believe they're aiming for a date this summer, and won't want to wait a whole additional year before officially tying the knot.
They Love Martha's Vineyard
Sources say Chris and Katherine are planning to wed on Martha's Vineyard, a place Katherine spent many summers as a child growing up. It's a beautiful setting to say "I do," with tons of venues sporting breathtaking ocean views.
Chris' Son Jack May Be in the Wedding
Sources told People magazine that Chris may involve his 6-year old son in the wedding. Named Jack, he's the boy Chris had with ex-wife Anna Faris before the two broke off their marriage just last year. Apparently Chris made sure Jack was a big part of his and Katherine's relationship from the start, taking him along on dates and outings. That way, Katherine could bond with the boy immediately.
As Chris saw how well they got along, it definitely played a role in his decision to pop the question after just a few months of dating. And on the other side of that coin, Katherine loves how great Chris was with his son, cementing her conviction that she had found her soul mate.
They Want the Ceremony to be Religious
Both Chris and Katherine are devout Christians, and they most definitely will want God to be involved heavily in the ceremony. Chris is non-denominational, but he connected with Katherine immediately over their shared Christian faith. Chris and Katherine go to the same Los Angeles celebrity church frequented by Justin and Hailey Bieber, who also happen to have a religious wedding ceremony coming up soon! Either way, we know for a fact that both bride and groom see this wedding as a deeply spiritual, and not just romantic, endeavor.
The Bride's Mom is Helping with Planning
Katherine's mom Maria Shriver is allegedly heavily involved in the planning. Which is good, given how soon the wedding might have to be held! Shriver will apparently also be a big help with planning the bridal shower. Hopefully she won't try and completely take over...as long as she isn't trying to take the day away from the bride, there's nothing better than having mom on your side for pulling off the perfect wedding!
