Maksim Chmerkovskiy Dishes on His Wedding Plans With Fiancée Peta Murgatroyd: “It’s Going to Be Great”
Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd!
The Dancing With the Stars couple got engaged in December 2015 — and now they're finally gushing about their upcoming nuptials!
"We have an amazing, amazing space on Long Island, Oheka [Castle]," Maks, 37, told ABC News in a new interview on Monday, March 20. "It's going to be great."
The castle holds a very special place in Maks' heart since he's dreamed of it since coming to America in the early 1990s. "I remember when I was passing by this castle when I first immigrated, and [I said,] 'That's where I want to have my wedding,' and I just said it so [casually] and now it's happening," he added. “We went there. It’s perfect. We're going to have it for two days. They're closing the whole hotel. It's going to be unbelievable."

Maks and Peta, 30 — who welcomed Baby No. 1, a son named Shai in early January 2017 — will wed this summer, soon after Season 24 of DWTS ends.
And while you'd think she'd be busy being a new mom and also starring on this season of the dance competition, Peta is still finding room in her schedule to plan the couple's highly-anticipated ceremony.
"I hate to admit, but I've just removed myself from it," Maks confessed of the wedding planning. "I had to do my part of the list, which I never thought was that difficult, but it's kind of ridiculous."
