Alexis and Kris, Casa Chaac, Playacar

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!

And thank you to Studio AB for sharing the beautiful photos.
