They’re not in the planning phase yet, but Nick Lachey says that when he and Vanessa Minnillo begin to think about their wedding, he expects to take a backseat.

“I want it to be about her,” Lachey tells PEOPLE. “Any guy will tell you that it’s probably more about the bride than the groom. It’s just about celebrating your love for each other.”

Lachey, 37, met Minnillo, 30, four years ago while filming a music video for his song “What’s Left of Me,” and, according to him, the two instantly connected. “She’s my soulmate in every way,” he gushes. “She gets me, I get her. We enjoy a lot of the same things and we enjoy each other’s company.”
