Carson got on one knee and popped the question to Witney on October 3, 2015. Witney had officially announced the same to her fans on Instagram. She published a post about it on Instagram. Her caption mentioned how she felt blessed enough to be the happiest woman alive. Her caption read: “My love of four years @carson.mcallister proposed last night and I feel like the luckiest, luckiest woman alive. It was perfect, he is perfectly #engaged.”

We became really close friends and started dating the most loving and understanding girl I have ever met.”
Witney added that since he was in Utah and she was in LA, they’ve both been in some sort of banter. She said: “We were in this limbo where he’s in Utah and I’m in LA and we couldn’t build a life together. Now we can make a fresh start together. I’m excited. He is my best friend”.
