When you know, you just know. Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson, the granddaughter of the show’s eccentric Phil Robertson, just got engaged on Sunday, June 9, but she says she’s wasting no time with wedding plans.
“We want a short engagement—we’re ready,” she told People. “We’re ready to get this show on the road and celebrate a wedding with everybody. Definitely sooner than later.” One important detail that the pair have already nailed down is where the ceremony will take place: at her family’s home in Louisiana.
“We’re going to do it at my house in Louisiana and it’s just going to be very romantic and elegant, but also, like, the biggest party ever because, like I said, we both love a good celebration,” she said. The couple, who met last July, are still figuring out the right wedding date, but told People that it’ll “probably [be] in the near future.”
Robertson, 22, said that she and her fiancé, 21-year-old Christian Huff, also know that they want to have an evening wedding, since evenings have been such an important part of their relationship.
“Ever since we started talking about getting married one day, we both want a night wedding because we love going on walks at night, we love the stars, we love just what it looks like at night,” she said. “And we love lots of lights, so we want it to be all lit up at night.”
Robertson also told People that though she and Huff had talked about marriage sometime down the line, she didn’t know when exactly the proposal would happen, and was completely caught off-guard Sunday.
“I knew that we were getting engaged soon because I knew he had talked to my dad [Willie Robertson] and we had talked about it, but I did not know it was coming at the party,” she said. “It was the most perfect thing ever!”
And though the pair are still hammering out some of the finer details of what that night wedding will look like—they did just get engaged less than a week ago, after all!—they’re already looking forward to the best part of the celebrations: the dance floor.
“You better know that I’m going to bust some moves!” she said, adding that she was excited to share the happy news with her Dancing With the Stars partner Mark Ballas.
“We were already texting and … he said, ‘Happy engagement,’” she said. “And I said, ‘Meet me on the dance floor. Reunion time.’”
