Kayla Wyatt, 31, Business Development at Fandango living in Los Angeles
Ryan Wyatt, 31, Head of Gaming at YouTube, living in Los Angeles
Came across each other on a dating app called Happn but Ryan Dm’d Kayla via Instagram
Kayla was blown away at how charming and outgoing Ryan was and Ryan was also surprised at how easy the conversation was & it felt like they had known each other much longer
It happened pretty fast for both of them but Ryan ended up sending a trunk full of roses with a poem to say I love you and Kayla later said I love you back after attending a Drake concert
Ryan surprised Kayla in Portugal (hence the Portuguese theme) on the rooftop of their hotel the Bela Vista facing the ocean with a private 12-course dinner by Michelen star chef João Oliveira. He brought her over to a steeple on the roof and popped the question with a photographer hiding nearby to capture the moment.
Going off the Portugal theme we found a hotel that had Portuguese/European vibes (Fairmont Grand Del Mar) and played off the greens, whites and blush tones of the venue. Also adding in pops of blue with china bread plates and blue water goblets. The venue had a great Gatsby vibe so we played Frank Sinatra and had dinner on the great lawn.

European, Gatsby, classic
My favorite part was the outside staircase where my florists adorned the steps with a beautiful flower installation
