Designer Nate Berkus says he knew on
their first date that he would someday marry The Rachel Zoe Project

popped the question during a recent trip to Peru as part of a
shopping trip with home furnishings and décor retailer One Kings
Berkus asked the question atop the
15th-century Inca site Machu Picchu.
“I've known since our first date that
Jeremiah was who I wanted to spend the rest of my life with,”
