With Netflix’s ‘Selling the OC’ living up to its franchise in every way possible, we get an inside look into not just lavish estates but even the personal and professional lives of some feisty realtors. Thus, of course, the fact Tyler Stanaland is a main cast member of this reality original means his marriage with Brittany Snow (‘Pitch Perfect‘ as well as ‘Almost Family‘) is also a point of intrigue. So now, if you wish to learn more about the details of this relatively reserved couple’s cozy romance, their personal experiences, and their current standing, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.
Tyler and Brittany’s Selling the OC Journey
It was back in 2018 when the Orange County native, former professional surfer, and generational realtor slid into the actress’ Instagram DM’s, only for it to turn into a spark neither could deny. Brittany has since admitted they “had a bunch of friends in common,” yet Tyler still reached out to her “with a really lame pickup line” that actually worked because they soon ended up on a date. “We got tacos after years of being infatuated with one another and forgot how to speak entirely,” she said. “There was a certain amount of tequila consumed, and then we just started talking.”
Brittany then candidly added that’s when they fell in love despite their three-year age gap (she is older), “and nothing’s really changed, we’re still eating tacos and [drinking] margaritas together.” The couple hence got engaged by the time early 2019 came around, with Tyler describing his future bride as “the most beautiful, intelligent, thoughtful, caring, incredible human” while announcing the same. In a since-removed post, he had continued, “I couldn’t be more excited to do life with you. Here’s to forever and making our wildest dreams come true. Love you to the moon and back.”
A little more than a year later, just before the pandemic really took over, Tyler and Brittany tied the knot in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Cielo Farms vineyard in Malibu on March 14, 2020. Their vows were reportedly completely personalized, but it was the fact they were genuinely happy and comfortable during the intimate day that really shone through, even in their photographs. We should mention they’d had a joint bachelor and bachelorette party as they knew they’d miss each other if they didn’t — “He’s my Prince Charming come to life,” Brittany had said back then.
It’s undeniable that Tyler and Brittany faced their fair share of complex issues over the years, yet the truth is they admittedly always managed to make things work by communicating openly. Even when the former’s co-worker Kayla Cardona attempted to kiss him, their union remained strong because they simply made their feelings clear while reiterating boundaries with outsiders. “I don’t really like to talk about personal stuff because I find that it’s a little strange to talk about my husband when he’s not here in that way… But I do love being married [and] I love him,” the actress had told US Weekly in December 2021.
Are Tyler and Brittany Still Together?
Although Tyler and Brittany seemed undeniably, unwaveringly strong from the outside looking in, the truth is not everything between them was sunshine and roses at every step of the way. In fact, they’d gradually grown apart to such an extent by September 14, 2022, they announced their legal separation through a joint statement on their Instagram profiles: “After time and consideration, Tyler and I have made the difficult decision to separate. This decision was made with love and mutual respect for one another. We have realized we need to take some time and make sure we are each living our most fulfilling and authentic lives.”
“We started this journey as best friends, and our relationship will continue to be a priority not only for us but for our dog Charlie,” Tyler and Brittany added. “We sincerely appreciate your support and ask for privacy as we navigate this new chapter.” In the end, in July 2023, their divorce was finalized, with their assets being divided based on ownership thanks to their prenuptial agreement as well as a lack of apparent community goods signed by both – as per court documents, they both became legally single on August 11, 2023.
