For instance, you can plan a day-date in Rosewood Resort in Mexico. Situated in the heart of the Baja Peninsula, the scenic resort overlooks the Cortez Sea and Pacifica Ocean. The wild-rich setting becomes magical when you gaze up at bespoke firework display or sip champagne hand in hand under the starry sky. Dance, laugh or stroll with your partner to make every moment count while our photographer rewrites your love story through photos.
