Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert will be exchanging vows on a day known for love.
The second-season Bachelor in Paradise couple basically confirmed they will be getting married on Valentine's Day 2016 when Roper posted a link to an Us Weeklystory claiming that's the case on her Facebook page.
As previously announced on Monday night's Bachelor Live special, "Janner" has agreed to wed on national television. Like Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici before them, Roper and Tolbert's special will air live on ABC.
After Bachelor in Paradise's finale aired in September of last year, the engaged pair began to blast their love all over social media. Roper, 29, also decided to move in with Tolbert, 28, in Kansas City, MO.
The soon-to-be newlyweds posted an Instagram photo Sunday of them kissing on a plot of land.
"Adulting real hard today. Tanner and I just put a deposit down on a few acres to build our home together!" Roper captioned the image. "#jannerforever."
While Roper and Tolbert's wedding plans may seem sudden or pushed, Roper stated on Twitter Tuesday she is not pregnant.
The sweet couple have been documenting events leading up to their big day on Instagram, including shopping for their wedding registry at Crate & Barrel. Roper bragged about how her fiance is "a good man" for missing NFL Playoffs earlier this week to run errands with her all day.
Roper revealed to Us last year she's always wanted to get married under a willow tree and have an outdoor wedding. She envisioned her dress to be "soft and romantic" but "nothing to outrageous that you can't wear outside."
The pair had also been contemplating a televised wedding, but Tolbert was more onboard with the idea at the time.
"I'm not completely closed off. I just want to make sure that that doesn't take away from the sacred feeling of a wedding," Roper told the magazine. "But we've gotten such a huge positive response from America about our engagement, so I know that it's something that they are invested in and would like to see."
Roper first appeared on Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor and made it to Season 19 hometown dates. Tanner vied for Kaitlyn Bristowe's affection on The Bachelorette's eleventh season but didn't make it that far.
Roper and Tolbert dated from Day 1 in Paradise, spending every day and night together in Mexico. The fact they were so inseparable all season long made fans anticipate Tolbert popping the question at the end. They were one of two couples to leaveBachelor in Paradise's second edition in a relationship -- and the only one to get engaged.
