This Portuguese Themed Wedding Will Make You Forget It’s In California

Bride’s Names, Age, Job and where she lives:

Kayla Wyatt, 31, Business Development at Fandango living in Los Angeles

Groom’s Name, Age, Job and where he lives:

Ryan Wyatt, 31, Head of Gaming at YouTube, living in Los Angeles

How you two met:

Came across each other on a dating app called Happn but Ryan Dm’d Kayla via Instagram

What was your first impression of each other?:

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

When did each of you know you were in love?:

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

How did the proposal happen?:

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.

Style of the wedding:

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.


shades of white and ivory, blush pink and Portuguese blue


European, Gatsby, classic

Anything unique happen or with decor?:

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

If you had to pick a favorite moment of the day what would it be?:

Sitting at the sweetheart table taking it all in enjoying small moments together while looking out at all of our loved ones

What was the most fun part of the wedding to plan?:

The food!
