Calamigos Ranch wedding in Malibu

Alyssa and Ryan’s Calamigos Ranch wedding in Malibu was a lovely summer soiree, with sorbet-inspired accents and a citrusy color palette.

This LA couple first met while they both lived in New York and bonded early in their relationship over dinner dates and episodes of Narco (they say their love of cartel shows is just one of their many compatibilities!). Ryan proposed during their annual winter holiday trip to Ojai; he’d taken Alyssa on many work trips before, so she didn’t suspect anything out of the ordinary. The couple spent the evening shopping and dining in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, and the next morning, over coffee and room service breakfast, Ryan got on one knee.

Alyssa and Ryan enlisted wedding planner HoneyFitz Events and floral designer Lark Farnum to bring their summer garden party vision to life. The couple were thrilled with their vibrant, elegant celebration and, with the help of The Mosaics, danced the night away with friends and family.
