"We are very excited to tell you guys that we have booked a venue. We're getting married in Hawaii on January 12th next year!" Lauren told People.
"It's in Maui — it's at Haiku Mill which has this beautiful, old world feel with a lot of vines and greenery. It's not your typical beach wedding. And it's a private wedding, so not on TV — just a close group of friends. Probably 100 guests," Arie added, gushing about the big day.
