Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger may have just announced their engagement over the weekend, but the couple has already started wedding planning. Both E! News and People reported that Pratt and Schwarzenegger are thinking about a big, traditional, and religious event—something that is very important to the pair.

 

Pratt and Schwarzenegger's faith has been a foundational part of their relationship. After all, the two were set up by Schwarzenegger's mother Maria Shiver, who attends the same church as Pratt. "They're going to want a religious wedding," the source told People. "I know that Chris does, and I assume that she does, too. God is going to be a part of this marriage."

As for their big day's location? California seems like an obvious choice because of Schwarzenegger's roots, but the two have their sights set on a wedding this summer in Martha's Vineyard. "They are thinking about Martha's Vineyard which is a special place for Katherine and where she spent a lot of time growing up," a source told E! News. "Chris wants her to have her perfect day and whatever she wants. It will be a big wedding and very traditional." The source also explained that Shiver has also been heavily involved in the wedding planning process already—she wants to throw an engagement party and bridal shower for her daughter.

 

Following news of the duo's engagement, many celebrities—including members of Schwarzengger's family and Anna Faris, Pratt's ex-wife—have been quick to offer their congragulations. The latest famous face to weigh in on Pratt and Schwarzenegger's engagement? Priyanka Chopra. The newlywed took to the comments section of Pratt's Instagram announcement to wish the couple well. "So happy for you both. It's the best!" she wrote of married life.
