While the pair initially thought they'd settle down in Brooklyn, NY, they said they found the perfect place in Chelsea.
"I'm definitely happy about it," Serena said. "It'll make things just easier. I mean, travel's kind of part of our lives, part of our careers and our relationship but, yeah, we love the city so it's going to be fun."
The Chicago native and Serena, whose family lives in Canada, attended the Sherri Hill NYFW Bridal and Evening Fashion Show on Friday to support fellow Bachelor in Paradise alum Hannah Godwin, who walked the runway in the show.
While viewing all the bridal couture, Serena and Joe apparently had their wedding in mind.
"That's why we're here, that's why we're here," Joe joked of wedding inspiration, adding how he and his fiancee are aiming for a 2023 ceremony.
Joe and Serena fell head over heels in love for each other on Bachelor in Paradise's seventh season after coupling up in the first few days of Paradise, and they got engaged during the finale that aired in October 2021.
"Wedding invites, engagements -- yeah, there's a lot to happen this year," Serena noted.
Joe shared in mid-March how he and Serena were only days away from signing a lease in New York together.
"We wanted something a little more low-key in New York. We've been going back and forth splitting time between Chicago and Toronto, and it does get exhausting traveling back and forth and back and forth," Joe revealed at the time.
Joe joked that Serena had been living out of a suitcase for eight months.
"So to find somewhere mutual that we both are still close to our families and wanna be, that's how we came up with that," he added.
In terms of what the couple was looking for from their first apartment, Joe said they'd like "natural lighting" and "in-unit laundry."
Joe and Serena's families had yet to meet in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but he said he gets "along great" with Serena's loved ones and vice versa.
Joe gushed to Us in early December 2021 how he didn't think he and Serena will ever leave the honeymoon phase of their relationship.
"We're really riding the honeymoon phase long and hard right now," Serena said, "and it's going really good."
Joe said at the time he and Serena were planning on "moving in together soon" -- either in New York City, Toronto, or Chicago -- adding that everything "couldn't be going any better" for them.
"It really just comes down to what makes the most sense for the relationship and our lives professionally," Serena said late last year.
Serena called the moment "beautiful" and insisted she had no regrets about allowing Joe to put a ring on her finger.
On Bachelor in Paradise's seventh-season finale, Joe gushed after getting engaged, "We followed our hearts and will just figure out the other stuff later."
And Serena joked, "The most logical people on the beach followed our hearts and got engaged!"
Prior to appearing on Bachelor in Paradise 7, Joe got eliminated very early from Becca's season of The Bachelorette and met Kendall on Season 5 of Paradise.
Despite being happy and in love, Joe and Kendall broke up because they couldn't agree on whether to live in Chicago or Kendall's home city of Los Angeles long-term.
Joe gave Los Angeles a chance during and after his stint on Dancing with the Stars and wanted to move back to Chicago to be with his friends and family, but Kendall apparently wouldn't even consider relocating and trying out a life in Chicago.
And Serena dumped Matt James on his The Bachelor season that aired in early 2021 after her hometown date.
Kendall is now dating a man outside of Bachelor Nation and shared on Instagram late last week how she's happy and in love.
