Lauren and Francisco Munoz

By  0 Comments

Lauren Bridewell-Munoz grew up in Santa Rosa, California, surrounded by a wonderful family and amazing friends! She works for the State of California. She enjoys cooking, baking and spending time with her family.

Francisco Munoz grew up in Riverbank, California, with a loving family. He works for the U.S. Postal Service and is in the Reserves. He enjoys spending time outdoors, spending time with his family and traveling with his new bride.

“We met on,” smiles Lauren. “We dated for a while and took a break. One day on the way to work he saw me on the freeway and we have pretty much been together since then!”

Francisco chose a beautiful June day for his proposal. “We decided to go to San Francisco for the afternoon and took a boat ride around the bay on the Blue and Gold Fleet boat. He said he wanted to recreate one of our first dates,” Lauren reminisces. “We sat outside and during the cruise he read me a letter asking me to marry him.”

The blissful couple tied the knot February 24, 2018, at Morris Chapel at University of the Pacific. Lauren’s Matron of Honor was Kristina Arroyo and bridesmaids were Liz Wright, Samantha Walker, Alexis Ramirez and Mandy Grossi. Kailynn Munoz and Brihanna Munoz served as junior bridesmaids. Francisco’s Best Man was Greg Walker; groomsmen were David Munoz, Johnny Munoz, Carlos Jimenez and Oscar Jimenez. Dominic Bridewell had the role of ringbearer.

“Our wedding day was perfect. My parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and an aunt were married at Morris Chapel, and I wanted to keep the tradition going,” Lauren affirms. “It was beautiful. The reception was held at the Stockton Golf and Country Club. We had so much fun celebrating with our family and friends who came from all over to be with us on our special day. It went by so fast; it felt as if you blinked you would miss it.”

Lauren and Francisco spent a wonderful honeymoon weekend in Monterey and Carmel enjoying the beaches, great restaurants and the spa.
