The most romantic spot in San Diego
I'm the owner of Tayler Ashley Photography and I had the pleasure of shooting a wedding here. What a wonderful spot to get married! Gorgeous scenery, tons of options for ceremony and reception locations. Even though it's a popular hotel, the wedding felt so private and intimate.Sent on 05/02/2020

Words cannot describe how much we LOVE the RBI and couldn't have picked a better venue for our wedding!! We had the BEST experience working with Fran and Adrian. They were incredible throughout the entire process and we absolutely LOVED getting married on the Aragon Lawn and dancing the night away in the Aragon Ballroom! The minute I stepped onto the Aragon Lawn, I knew that was where I wanted to stand under the chuppah and marry my best friend. From start to finish, Adrian was my rock and so incredible to work with. She was there by my side morning, noon and night and truly helped make my dream wedding come true. Fran was amazing setting everything up for us and Adrian helped finalize our plans for our perfect wedding day. Even when it came to our tasting, they let me customize the menu due to our dietary restrictions and it was delicious! All of our guests could not stop raving about how delicious the food was and how beautiful the ceremony and reception were. The RBI was 100% the most incredible, reliable, attentive, and support venue to work with. The venue it self, staff, food and entire ambiance was truly amazing and we highly recommend using the RBI as your wedding venue!!!Sent on 02/09/2020
