Wehby was once told that he would never walk again after breaking his neck, but “did it three days later anyway,” according to Lotuaco. “So yes, he really stood out,” she shares.

Lotuaco is admittedly “hard to surprise”, leaving Wehby “to get creative” with his proposal.

“When Nick and I first started dating, we were at a distance and shared a diary that we wrote love notes in when we were apart,” Lotuaco told PEOPLE. “Nick wanted to incorporate the diary in some way, so Kate came up with the idea of ​​having us write letters to read while filming.”

While filming, Toney had the two letters exchanged and read them to each other. Halfway through Wehby’s letter, Lotuaco realized what was going on. Wehby’s parents then climbed a nearby staircase with Lotuaco’s parents on FaceTime.
