Shattuck shared details of the proposal on his Instagram, revealing that the couple was visiting a castle in southern France. “In an abandoned castle in southern France, I asked this woman to marry me. ?❤️?Here she is in front of a door the color of her soul,” Shattuck wrote on his Instagram. “In LA / MA / Holland / Belgium / France thank you @jennyslate and UP UP UP to more adventures ???.”
