Any thought that 2019 would be a predictable year in the world of celebrity news was quickly vanished in January, when Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger announced that they were engaged after less than a year of dating.
Things got very serious very quickly for the notoriously private lovebirds, after they were first romantically linked back in June. Eight months later and two weeks into the new year, the actor unexpectedly posted on Instagram to reveal that he was "thrilled to be marrying [Katherine], and “proud to live boldly in faith” together as future husband and wife.
Continuing at romantic super-speeds and heading straight for the alter, Pratt, 39, has already been revealing a few hints as to what we can expect from their upcoming big day. Here’s everything we know so far about their wedding plans.

I know that Chris does, and I assume that she does, too. God is going to be a part of this marriage.”
