DeWyze told People magazine that he proposed over champagne on a private yacht under a fireworks-filled sky.

"Jonna is a Disney freak," he added. "They were playing love songs on the boat and I got down on my knee and asked her. I had a speech prepared but it all went out the window so I just asked her. She started crying and I said, 'Is that a yes?'"

DeWyze and Walsh, who met last October while he was shooting a video for his song "Sweet Serendipity," are reportedly planning to marry next fall.
