Jodi Arias, the woman who became a household name after brutally murdering her boyfriend, Travis Alexander, has reportedly fallen in love while behind bars and is planning a wedding.
A friend of Arias' told In Touch Magazine that the infamous murderer is planning a prison wedding.
"She wants to have all of her friends and family there," the friend revealed, according to Hollywood Life. "It will be the fairytale wedding to a man she loves."
Arias, 35, is serving a life sentence after reportedly killing her boyfriend in a jealous rage in 2008. Her relationship with Alexander made international headlines as details of the tumultuous relationship and brutal murder were broadcasted live from court. In May 2013, she was convicted of first-degree murder.

According to Barrett Marson, former director of communications for the Arizona Department of Corrections, prison weddings are quite rare, and dating in prison is very different from typical relationships.
"There are phone calls that you’re allowed to have, but Jodi Arias is not allowed to have contact visits," Marson told KNXV. "She is in maximum security, [….] there’s not the typical courtship that you’re going to see in most dating relationships."
According to her friend, Arias already has specific ideas for her wedding.
"She wants to wear a figure-hugging dress and hold a bouquet," the friend told In Touch, according to Hollywood Life. "A flashy diamond ring and wedding band have also been things Jodi has talked about. She also wants to have photos as a reminder of the day."
Arias reportedly also wants a family with children with the unidentified man. She has been talking to several men through Skype and allegedly receives wedding proposals “on a weekly basis,” her friend said.
"There are no white gowns, and there's no walk down the aisle, you get married in your usual orange prison attire," Marson told KNXV. "There’s no kids, there’s no happiness, there’s no music. There’s not a lot of those regular trappings that women look forward to planning for a wedding."
Wedding ceremonies within the Arizona Department of Corrections take place in the prison cafeteria and last 15 minutes, according to the Daily Mail. Although the newlyweds may receive up to four hours together, conjugal visits are prohibited.
So far, Arias has not filed an application to get married in prison, KNXV reports. She would also need to apply for a marriage license.
