In August, Casey shared insight into their wedding day during an interview with Us Weekly, explaining that their ceremony would "be rather small" due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"My family lives in the States, obviously, and her family, they're Canadian," he told the magazine. "So we're hoping the border [situation] works out and everyone can pop up here."

Casey also revealed that his brother, Broadway star Corey Cott would officiate the wedding.

"He's going to marry us, which is really cool. So we're really excited that he's going to be very involved," Casey raved. "We're really close with all of our siblings, and we figured that'd be a good role for him. And he always knows your role when he gets cast. So we cast him."

"So happy for you two," Camila commented, with Madelaine writing, "I'm so happy about this."
