Modern-day brides and grooms are busier than ever, but when a couple is trying to balance filming schedules with global tours, a romantic relationship can be especially tricky. However, “Scream” actress Carlson Young and Foster the People’s Isom Innis are making it happen. With just a few weeks left until their April wedding, we caught up with Carlson to discuss her beloved, their wedding-planning process, and what she’s most looking forward to when it comes to their nuptials. See her answers and their engagement photos below!
Inside Weddings: How long have you been together? Can you tell us about your engagement?
Carlson Young: We’ve been together for three and a half years. Our engagement was awesome and very unforgettable. We were in Iceland stranded on the side of a mountain in -10 degree weather in the middle of a massive snowstorm. Our car got stuck for 6+ hours and finally we got a single bar of service on our phone to call Icelandic emergency services to come save us… but before we got the service, we were in total survival mode, not even sure what was going to happen. We were at least 30 miles from anywhere with service, and it was so freezing outside you couldn’t stay out of the car for more than 10 minutes! So, thankfully, we were rescued, and on the drive home, I made him pull over because the sun was finally coming up, and it looked like Mordor. I started blasting The Lord of the Rings music. We were just cracking up – totally shocked at the whole experience. And then he proposed. He was like, “Ummmm I didn’t plan on doing this now, but I feel like I should, because we almost just died!”
IW: How long will you have been engaged when you get married? How many months of that were spent planning the big day?
CY: We’ll have been engaged for a year and a half. Planning started tentatively about a year ago.
