Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich started dating back in December of 2013, shortly after she and Ryan Seacrest called it quits.

In a recent interview with Redbook magazine, Hough explained her new outlook on relationships that came after attending a seminar on creating your own destiny.

"I was not into it at first, but I learned so much about myself and why my relationships didn't work that by the end I was on a high. I was seeing a couple people, but immediately [pretends to text guys], 'You are nice, but this is going nowhere,'" she said. "The next day my Curve co-star introduced [Brooks Laich and me]. It couldn't have been a better time. We've been open and honest from day one."

It seems Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich were destined to be together.

No word has hit the media yet as to when the pair will tie the knot.

Julianne Hough will no doubt be a beautiful bride.
