Luyendyk has lived in Arizona for many years now, but it’s all new to Burnham. The Bachelor stars talked about exploring the Arcadia area where they live, but they admitted that they aren’t big into the nightlife scene. They keep active by running, hiking, and rock climbing and fans know they have a couple of dogs that they’re out and about with a lot, too.

As the Inquisitr recently shared, Lauren and Arie have their wedding invitations done and they were recently mailed to their close family and friends. Luyendyk and Burnham will tie the knot in Hawaii in January, and they say that they have about 120 people on the guest list. While the Bachelor stars are involved in the planning, it seems that his manager and the wedding planner of their venue are doing a lot of the heavy lifting.

Neither Arie nor Lauren has been to Maui before, and they’ve decided to hold off on seeing the venue until they are there for their nuptials. The Bachelor stars will also honeymoon in Hawaii. Luyendyk shared that given the exotic locations they’re gone to recently, like Bora Bora, they’re glad that Hawaii is an easy place to travel to that gives them and their family the best of both worlds.

Burnham and Luyendyk are already talking about having babies, and they share that they are thinking four children would be ideal for them. The ending they had on their Bachelor season may have been a wild one, but they say that it ultimately worked for them and they’re very happy together.

ABC’s cameras won’t be rolling for this Bachelor wedding, as Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are tying the knot privately. Fans are excited to hear that things are going so well for them and can’t wait for more updates down the road.
