Claire & Jason’s Mexican Celebration in Chacala, Nayarit

When bride-to-be Claire first contacted Plush she was in the very beginning stages of planning her Mexican Celebration at her family’s property in Marina Chacala, Riviera Nayarit. We loved the couple’s food focus plans from the get go and were delighted when they hired Chic Concepts to put all of the details together for them and Elizabeth Lloyd to capture it all with her camera.

The Mexican themed celebration began with Agua Fresca as guests arrived at the family’s gorgeous garden for vows overlooking the ocean. After the ceremony guests made their way to the beach for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a four course Mexican themed dinner under the beach club’s palapa while the live band played. The celebration winded down with sliders and churros at midnight.
