Apparently, Adrienne thought that they returned to Paris, after traveling through Greece, to celebrate her parents anniversary:

I didn’t know there was some trickery going on… It was just honestly magical. My parents being there was so special to me. [My parents] were actually celebrating 20 years of marriage and I thought originally we were just celebrating them. Obviously when the surprise happened I was super excited, super happy.

Adrienne also discussed how their relationship began initially as a friendship.

We were friends for three years before [dating.] I think that makes a difference. We never thought we’d end up together. It was like, ‘Hey, what’s up? And we’d hang out with a bunch of friends and I would say ridiculous things out of my mouth that I probably wouldn’t say if I really liked him. And then he got to know the real me and I love that.

She added,

I think when you’re younger you have to date around to see what you like, what you don’t. There are different things from different people that I dated that I’m like, ‘I love this quality. I don’t love this quality so much.’
