COUPLE OF THE WEEK | Shayla & Michael


Marbella Country Club | San Juan Capistrano, CA

After meeting on a dating website, Michael and Shayla found exactly what they were looking for, “the one”! The two dated for about 15 months before Michael made it official. “It was so sweet. He was acting a little nervous the day of and told me to dress up for a date night”, Shayla says.

Michael took her to one of their favorite places, Corona Del Mar beach. With Shayla’s entire family hiding nearby, and a violinist playing as they approached for a sunset picnic , Michael got down on one knee. Before he could even finish the question, Shayla said yes!

Michael and Shayla fell in love with the Marbella Country Club and its beautiful cypress trees almost instantly. “The Mediterranean style architecture, views overlooking the golf course, you definitely don’t feel like you are in Orange County when you’re there”.

Shayla’s favorite part of the day was the first look. Seeing Michael before the ceremony calmed her nerves and for just a moment it was as if they were the only two people in the world. Michael’s favorite part was being able to soak in the moment as newlyweds during their formal photos. These two may have been surrounded by friends, families, and loved ones but they made sure to take in every second together to make it an unforgettable day!
