Sere and Colin, Villa Playacar, Destination Wedding in Playa del Carmen

orchids-playa-del-carmenSomething a little different for you this Friday! This was not your traditional white wedding on the beach! Our couple, all the way from Australia, along with their nearest and dearest, rented a beautiful Villa in Playacar to throw one heck of a party with a fun blue theme!

Jordan and David, Villa Bellamar, Destination Wedding in Akumal

weddings in playaWe could list a million reasons why any couple should consider getting married in the Riviera Maya. Besides the obvious ones like gorgeous weather and breathtaking scenery, there are several other very special qualities this area has inherited as a result of its growing international population. It’s these qualities; the beauty, acceptance, respect and diversity, that brought Jordan and David along with with closest friends and family, from Texas and beyond for their beautiful beachside nuptials in Akumal.

Playa_del_Carmen_Gay_WeddingThe celebration was held at Villa Bellamar, a gorgeous luxury retreat in Akumal, only 20 minutes outside Playa del Carmen. The quiet beach was the perfect backdrop for this intimate gathering.

We loved the choice of decor for this event. Pops of blue and violet with marine accents made it feel romantic and masculine and fun with touches of quirky Mexican art kept it light and festive.

Afton and Adam, Casa Chaac, Playacar Destination Wedding

Casa Chaac Wedding Part of the ever-growing demand for a private villa wedding in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya is the amount of flexibility you have in the planning process.
With so many gorgeous options and countless reliable and professional vendors to chose from to help bring your vision together, it’s a great alternative to the packaged resort wedding.
For these exact reasons, Afton and Adam chose to fly 60 of their friends and family to Casa Chaac in Playacar for their destination wedding celebration.

The ladies got ready at a private villa on the beach while the men sipped cervezas and awaited the stunning beach front ceremony.

With pops of pink, turquoise and green accents, the venue was transformed into a destination wedding paradise. Swaying palms lit up the night as guests dined on Indigo Beach’s fine cuisine and enjoyed dancing along the Caribbean sea.

Alexis and Kris, Casa Chaac, Playacar

PhotostudioAB020

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!
