<p><span></span>Surrounded by close friends and family, Extra TV correspondent <strong>Adrianna Costa</strong> celebrated her engagement to Scott Gorelick at Blushington Makeup and Beauty Lounge in West Hollywood. Guests sipped California brut champagne as they toasted the couple. Friends <strong>Terri Seymour</strong> and <strong>Shaun Robinson</strong> admired the sweet decor and treats, which included Crumbs cupcakes topped with photos of the happy couple.</p>
Adrianna and Scott first met 11 years ago, but it wasn't until the past year that they reconnected by a twist of fate -- and things became serious. Adrianna tells Life & Style, "I heard Scott's name over the years through mutual friends, but we never touched base. Then I ran into him again, 10 years later, at Trousdale on a Tuesday night!"
Scott explains, "When we met again, I think it's one of those things -- timing is everything."
And Adrianna is very precise about timing: She insisted that they date for a full year before they got engaged. But Scott had other plans, proposing one day short of a year during a romantic evening at the Montage hotel in Laguna Beach. Scott led Adrianna to believe they were at the hotel for a work-related event, but there he surprised her with a cushion-cut 3.5-carat ring in a candlelit room covered in rose petals.
"I love my ring, it's a gorgeous stone," gushes Adrianna. "I'm telling you, I literally get stopped all the time by people who notice it!"
The couple exclusively told Life & Style that they are planning a small destination wedding in the spring of 2013. They are considering Arizona or Colorado's Rocky Mountains as possible locations. Adrianna is loving the planning process: "I'm really into it! I love looking on all the websites, I love talking about the planning and I love looking at the dresses!"
Scott is invested in the planning as well. "We don't want it to feel like every other wedding and have it in a ballroom -- we want the sky as our ceiling. We want it outdoors, so nature is a part of it, and we'd like it kind of stark but sexy and chic."
As far as the dress goes, Jessica Paster, stylist to Cate Blanchett and Emily Blunt, is set to style Adrianna for her nuptials.
Congrats to the happy couple!
