The wedding was a complete surprise to Moussa and Anstead’s guests. The couple invited 70 of their closest family and friends to watch the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. It was all a ruse.

The unsuspecting guests instead walked into a wedding.

“We wanted it to be rustic romance,” says El Moussa, who wore an Ines Di Santo lace dress.

“We wanted to make it about the kids,” Anstead added. “It’s the six of us. We’re a blended family so it was really important for them to be a part of it.”

The couple started dating in Oct. 2017. El Moussa’s divorce from Tarek was finalized in Jan. 2018.
