Heather Matarazzo & Girlfriend Caroline Murphy Are Engaged

Heather Matarazzo Carolyn Caroline Murphy

Now that they can legally marry in New York, the couple is planning a huge wedding.

Actress Heather Matarazzo (whom you may remember as Anne Hathaway's neurotic BFF in The Princess Diaries) is planning on making a honest woman out of her longtime musician girlfriend, Caroline Murphy. Although the couple has technically been engaged since 2008, now that New York has become the sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage, Heather and her fiancée can't wait to say their "I do's."

The couple originally had planned to marry in California, but that plan was nixed after Proposition 8 over-ruled their right. However, despite their long wait to walk down the aisle, don't expect to see them rushing to the nearest justice of the peace, claims Heather. 

"I always wanted a wedding," the 28-year-old actress told the Huffington Post. "Not a trip to City Hall."

Heather, who publicly came out as a lesbian in 2004, and Caroline (whose named is sometimes misspelled as Carolyn) are already plotting their blow-out bash, which will include guest list of over 200 family members and friends. And like any bride-to-be, both ladies are on the hunt for the perfect wedding outfit.

"When I see it I will just know," said Heather, who is envisioning a simple, off-white gown, while Caroline, who called her mother the day she met Heather and told her that she had just met her future wife, is planning on walking down the aisle in a "sexy," white pant suit.

The couple is also eager to start a family soon:

"We've always talked that Caroline would have a child first, and then I will go," Heather said, adding that they plan on adopting too.

Congrats to the happy couple!
