The "California Girl" singer recently told "Extra," "I'm very excited for it to be a location wedding because it would take people out of their comfort zone and mesh the small groups we are bringing together."

Brand popped the question to his pop star girlfriend in December 2009 outside the Taj Mahal while they were on vacation. They met at the MTV VMAs in September 2009.
