Lauren and Riley's love story blossomed in Baja California, and it was only fitting that their wedding would be a celebration of their deep connection to this enchanting region. On August 12, 2023, at Las Rocas Resort in Rosarito, México, they embarked on a journey of love and togetherness, surrounded by family and friends. As we document their special day, we invite you to join us in reliving the magic that unfolded.


Chapter 1: Baja Roots

Lauren and Riley may hail from San Diego, but their hearts have long had a second home in Baja California. The region's vibrant culture and breathtaking landscapes have been a cherished part of their lives since childhood. With a family house in Rosarito, they've spent countless moments enjoying the beauty and warmth that Baja has to offer.


Chapter 2: A Picture-Perfect Venue

When it came time to choose a wedding venue, there was no doubt: Las Rocas Resort was the place. Set along the stunning Baja coastline, it provided the perfect backdrop for their dream wedding. Our dear friends at ProBoda Baja Weddings worked their magic, transforming the venue into a paradise of romance and elegance.

Chapter 3: A 3-Day Celebration

Lauren and Riley's wedding was more than a single day; it was a three-day extravaganza filled with love and laughter. The festivities began with a lively pool party, setting the tone for a weekend of pure celebration. Cold beers, nachos, and guacamole set the stage for great times by the pool.


Chapter 4: The Happiness in the Air

Happiness and gratitude permeated every moment of the wedding day. Everyone shared the joy of the occasion, and it was evident in every smile and laugh. Thanks to the impeccable coordination by ProBoda Baja Weddings, guests and the bridal couple were free to savor the day without a care in the world.

Chapter 5: The Perfect Bride

Lauren embodied the perfect bride, radiating an aura of ease and enjoyment. Her approach was simple: "Let's do whatever makes sense and not stress over the insignificant things. Let's all have the most fun!" This mentality resulted in fantastic photos, capturing the essence of the celebration.



Chapter 6: An American Wedding Extravaganza

As we document more American weddings, we can't help but fall in love with their unique spirit. These celebrations are less about glamour and more about creating lasting memories with loved ones. It's all about crafting "wedding stories" that will echo through generations. Lauren and Riley's wedding was a prime example—a classic American wedding, infused with the joy of life and love under the Baja California sun.



Chapter 7: A Dream Continues

The following day was equally enchanting. The bride's father hosted a delightful brunch at his home, situated right next to

Las Rocas Resort. An exceptional local chef crafted a BajaMed feast, rekindling the previous day's magic.
