Everything for a wedding, including an ordained minister and a dress for Carfagna, was in place. "I thought he just wanted a minute to be like, 'Hey, we're engaged,''' Carfagna told TODAY. "Then he said he would like to end the night as husband and wife, but only if you want. I said yes immediately." Carfagna, who has lupus, was excited to have the wedding on the same night to save her the stress of planning it herself.
