In Mexico, Celebrations are a “go big or go home” type of affair. This was definitely the case for Liliana and Etsson of Monterey Mexico, who brought 120 guests to the Riviera Maya for a gorgeous wedding complete with two ceremonies; one church and one beach front!
Lavish floral Arrangements and roses were a big part of our decor. The church was romantic and traditional, followed by a beautiful beach themed ceremony complete with starfish and bamboo mats.
The set up at Grand Coral was stunning. Lace accents, mirrors, roses and elegant glassware set the tone for a romantic evening filled with love!
There is a reason why Casa Chaac gets so much wedding love. It’s just a 10 minute walk from all of the entertainment of downtown Playa del Carmen, yet it feels so personal and romantic and miles away from the action.
This, amongst many other obvious reasons, is why Alexis and Kris chose it for their destination wedding day in the Riviera Maya.
Our beautiful bride wanted some of the now famous Casa Chaac touches, such as taco carts, papel picado banners and strung lights and added her own touch with colors, photographs and an awesome lit up dance floor!
Tasty traditional Mexican treats were served thanks to Chef Ruben Lopez and his team and everyone had a great time celebrating this wonderful couple on this balmy November night in Playacar!
Congratulations Alexis and Kris! Thank you for letting us be a part of your magical time in Playa!
And thank you to Studio AB for sharing the beautiful photos.
