“For me, one thing I have said, from the day I ever started thinking about my wedding was that I would love a DJ [and] a live band,” Jason told Us Weekly in an interview published Thursday. “I want a big celebration; I want to enjoy it and I want to have a good time.”
The former banker also explained that he hopes to tear up the dance floor with Kaitlyn, who notably won “Dancing with the Stars” Season 29 in the fall of 2020. “I want to be dancing all night with the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ champion and have so much fun,” he added.
Though Jason has an idea of what his special day with Kaitlyn will look like, he revealed that the Bachelor Nation couple have yet to hire a wedding planner.
“Let’s take one step at a time and the first step is going to be getting our wedding planner,” he said. “After the wedding planner, we’ll have to lock in a venue and a location, and then a time. But we just have to wait to see, you know, what the wedding planner suggests and we’re going through that process now.”
Elsewhere in his chat with Us Weekly, Jason reflected on his proposal to Kaitlyn.
“It has been the best, like, two to three weeks of my life since [the proposal],” gushed Jason, who asked for Kaitlyn’s hand in marriage earlier this month while pretending to record an episode of her “Off the Vine” podcast.
“One of the things I really wanted to do was to surprise her. I know Kaitlyn loves to be surprised. And so that was one of my true goals to genuinely surprise her,” he continued, noting how his new fiancée screamed for joy in the moment (which he recorded and shared later via social media). “And her reaction was absolutely perfect. It was the most Kaitlyn reaction.”
Kaitlyn — who starred on “The Bachelor” Season 19 before leading “The Bachelorette” Season 11 — and Jason — who participated in Season 14 of “The Bachelorette” — have been dating since 2019 and live together in Nashville. The duo originally met when Jason appeared as a guest on Kaitlyn’s podcast.
