Heather’s compassion and advocacy for animals are the real deal. In addition to having gone vegan over a decade ago, she has several animal-related tattoos, including an elephant and the number 269 in memory of a slaughtered cow. And when she says “I do” to her husband-to-be, Tarek El Moussa—whom she says is “the most supportive person” of her vegan lifestyle—they will be celebrating with a big vegan wedding cake. (Heather, if you need help with the cake tasting, we’re available.)

Watch Heather’s exclusive PETA interview to hear more about her vegan journey:

Looking to save nearly 200 animals a year by going vegan? PETA offers a plethora of resources, and Heather regularly posts delicious vegan food and recipes to her Instagram account, inspiring her nearly 2 million followers to keep animals off their plates.

“Vegan food is incredible,” Heather tells PETA. “Just try it—you’ll love it, and you’ll feel a lot better. You’ll have more energy.”

If you or someone you know is planning a wedding, why not spread the love to animals by making it an all-vegan affair? From the food and drinks to the wedding dress and party favors, PETA’s Vegan Wedding Guide is here to help!
