Loeb, 38, and Vergara, 41, started dating back in 2010. They reconciled after a brief split in 2012 and Loeb proposed soon afterward at her 40th birthday party celebration in Mexico.
Vergara told Cosmopolitan in 2013 that she hadn't started planning her wedding because of the large party she threw herself in Mexico.
"When he proposed, it was my birthday, and I'd flown more than 100 family and friends to Mexico for six days of partying. It took me forever to arrange the logistics! If I had known I was going to get engaged, I don't do this stupid birthday," she said at the time.
Vergara spent Memorial Day weekend in New Orleans with family.
