"I had one of my closest friends, Justin Ross Ward, drive down and set up cameras," Stephen reveals.

"Jenna and I were planning on a sunset dinner at Fresh Catch Bistro, and I called ahead and told them … to say that the table wouldn't be ready for 30 minutes, so that we had to kill some time and walk on the beach," he adds. Sneaky guy!

"I am so blessed to have [Jenna] in my life and for us to become one," Stephen continues of his 26-year-old love. "She is my best friend, and I am so grateful for the Lord bringing her into my life."

The couple is planning to tie the knot in May 2014.

Love and Theft are known for the single "Angel Eyes," which hit number one on the country charts in 2011.

Stephen is also the subject of Taylor Swift's 2008 song "Hey Stephen." T-Swift reportedly wrote the song about her hidden feelings for the Love and Theft star.

Congrats to Stephen and Jenna! And we have a feeling Taylor will be okay.
