Julia and Preston got engaged on Christmas Eve in 2015 while on holiday in Isla Grande, Colombia. At the time, she shared a sweet photo on her Instagram, showing the couple holding hands with a beautiful sunset in the background. "Best Christmas Ever," she wrote alongside. Speaking to People afterwards, Julia said: "All around, it was a really wonderful trip. We stayed on an island that was really beautiful and there was a lot of great snorkelling. The city was really nice too, but because I live in the city the natural scenery was really great."

But the 10 Things I Hate About You actress admitted that the couple weren't in a hurry to tie the knot. "I'm not getting a ton of marital advice," she said. "We're really slow on the wedding planning so I haven't really been soliciting advice. Someday told me about radical empathy, but I'm still trying to figure out what that means. I'm trying to figure out what makes it radical."

Congratulations to Julia and Preston!
