Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are one step closer to tying the knot!

“This was exciting because it was the first tangible thing we got to do in terms of wedding planning and Lauren looked really good in white,” the former Bachelor star told PEOPLE of the couple’s engagement photos, which will be featured on an upcoming episode of Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? on Freeform.

Taken in the countryside on a hidden path, the photos definitely don’t lie — these two are crazy in love!

When the time comes for us to get married, we are both excited about making that commitment to spend our life together,” Higgins, 28, gushed.

“I’m so excited to have all our loved ones with us as we celebrate our life together — that and having a huge party,” Bushnell, 26, added.

“A huge party?” asked Higgins.

“A medium-sized party — I just can’t wait to have everyone we love together,” said Bushnell.

Though the wedding date has yet to be made, the happy couple previously shared what they hope their special day will be like.

“I like the idea of a winter wedding,” said Bushnell from the shoot with Valorie Darling at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu. “Something really romantic and intimate, with lots of candles.”

Added her groom-to-be: “I just want to look over at Lauren and know that she is completely filled with joy in that moment. And I want it to be one heck of a party. Love is what life is all about!”

Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? airs Tuesdays (8 p.m. ET) on Freeform.
