Things didn’t work out between Zach Shallcross and Season 19 Bachelorette Rachel Recchia because she couldn’t see herself walking down the aisle with him. Zach was heartbroken at hte time, but lucky for him, he’s getting another chance at love as the Season 27 Bachelor. And even luckier for him, one of his contestants already has a key part of their wedding planned. Gabi Elnicki from Zach’s season of The Bachelor already has her wedding venue picked out, which could mean she’s just one step closer to being ready to walk down the aisle with Zach.

Gabi is going into her Bachelor journey being honest about how she is definitely ready for marriage. According to her ABC bio, she’s already picked out her dream wedding venue on Lake Como in Italy. The fact that Gabi is so serious about getting married could be a good sign for her future with Zach. He told Bachelor Nation that he definitely wants to end the season engaged and wants to make sure the people he pursues are just as serious about the process. “I’m most nervous about the fact that there could be people that are on this journey and a part of this experience that don’t take it seriously and don’t want to actually find love. I want to find someone who truly wants a future with me, so that’s what scares me the most,” he said.

Here are all the details to know about Gabi, who seems to be ready for a real commitment with Zach.

Gabi’s Instagram makes it very clear how and why she already has her wedding venue picked out: She’s already attended countless friends’ weddings, and so she’s done her research. Her grid is filled with photos from her friends’ engagements and other celebrations, making it very clear that friendship is important to her. She also posts lots of photos with family in her hometown of Pittsford, Vermont.

Not only does Gabi support her friends’ relationships, but she also values her parents’ long-lasting marriage and uses it as an example. She’s 25 years old but seems to have a bit of “mom” energy since her favorite Kardashian is Kris. She also says that she takes a bit of time to come out of her shell, so hopefully that doesn’t stand in the way of her getting to know Zach this season.

Season 27 of The Bachelor premieres Monday, Jan. 23, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
