The Disney Channel star and Twenty One Pilots drummer first started dating in 2013 and, after a brief split in 2015, got back together. They were engaged three years later and revealed that they secretly got married in January 2020. “We began to flirt with the idea of having a destination party celebrating the new decade, then decided in December to get married [in Austin, Texas] on New Year’s Eve, and just keep dancing until after the ball dropped,” Debby told Vogue in May 2020.
She continued, “We didn’t want the ceremony to be in a ballroom. It became more and more important to us that the sanctity of the union exist in a reverent place. I think I saw every church in the greater Austin area and narrowed it down to two. Joshua chose the one we went with. The stained glass windows really got me.”
Josh, spoke about their wedding in the same interview. “The ceremony was the perfect balance,” the musician said. “I felt like it was game night at our house, and this was the ultimate game, and boy did I win! I remember every detail from how it felt to be walking down the aisle, to the full-body chills I got watching Debby walk down toward me. The advice that I had been given by multiple people was to allow ourselves to soak it all in.”
A year prior to the couple saying their “I dos,” Josh got down on one knee and asked Debby to marry him in a treehouse during a trip to New Zealand. He even flew out their entire family to celebrate after proposing to the actress. “I said yes! Well technically I said ‘NO WAY’ twice but I meant yes,” Debby wrote on Twitter at the time, alongside some adorable snaps of the moment. In the photos, Josh could be seen on one knee while she looked completely surprised and in love!
It turns out, the two lovebirds actually have a really long history together, so we decided it’s time to take a walk down memory lane and recap everything they went through as a couple. Scroll through our gallery for a complete guide to Debby and Josh’s adorable relationship.
