“Not a day nor hour more can I wait for you to be my bride. Ladies and gentlemen, the future Mrs. Foehner! ”

The couple confirmed to People that Cade proposed in the same hotel that they met and  were hanging out at while on Idol. During a trip back to L.A., Cade got down on one knee and popped the question.

“I’ve been thinking about proposing for quite a while,” Cade, 22, said. “It’s getting harder and harder to be apart. Doing all the traveling we have to do, sometimes we have to go a month without seeing each other. That’s a little much for me, so I decided to go ahead and do this thing!”
