Turn up the music, y’all! Cheryl Burke and her fiancé, Matthew Lawrence, have been dancing on cloud nine ever since getting engaged earlier this year — and fans seriously can’t wait to see them walk down the aisle. Luckily for us, the Dancing with the Stars pro has revealed to Life & Style how the pair plans to score a perfect 10 on their upcoming summer wedding.
“We’ve met with a coordinator,” Cheryl said of her secret weapon, adding that their dream location isn’t nailed down just yet. “I don’t think I’m a bridezilla, but I definitely have a particular vision for how I want things to be done.” Good for you, girl! It’s your special day — make it what you’ve always dreamed of!
The couple, who reunited nearly a decade after they split in 2008, will have a few famous faces as witnesses to Cheryl’s final masterpiece. “Leah Remini will be my maid of honor and Kym Johnson is a bridesmaid,” she gushed. “We’re in the process of ‘officially’ asking everyone in the bridal party!”
Knowing how chic and stylish Cheryl is, we bet the bridesmaid dresses she selects will be stunning — Leah and Kym are lucky ladies. Speaking of lucky ladies, shortly after Matthew popped the question to his brunette beauty, Cheryl shared her proposal with the world and let’s just say: It was something out of a fairytale!
The couple went to Laguna Beach for Cheryl’s birthday and after waiting all day long for the big moment, her fantasies of a proposal were fading fast. In fact, the reality star began to worry. Suddenly, Matt handed her a letter and the rest was history!
“I thought, ‘Oh no, is this like a breakup letter? Or, like, what is happening?’ He goes, ‘Just read it,'” she explained to People. “And I open it, [it’s] fine print — my eyes are pretty bad — he’s like, ‘Just read it.’ So I bring it up to my nose, and it says, ‘Love you always and forever.’ And I turned around, he was on one knee and we were just very emotional.” No, we’re not crying, you’re crying!
