In the heart of the Riviera Maya, Staccee and Mo threw an epic three-day Mexican Caribbean wedding bash at El Dorado Royale, bringing along 81 of their nearest and dearest. This wasn’t your average wedding; it was a destination fiesta that put a premium on forging real connections in the stunning backdrop of an all-inclusive resort in the heart of Cancun, Mexico.

Early on everyone kicked back and soaked up the sun at El Dorado Royale’s massive pools. Some opted for spa treatments to get into prime party mode for the main event, making sure they were relaxed and ready to roll.

The celebration started with a low-key rehearsal dinner, featuring tasty Mexican dishes prepared by the resort’s chefs. The night took a turn for the unexpected when Staccee and Mo cranked up the fun with a surprise karaoke session, injecting spontaneity and joy into the festivities.

Their Mexican Caribbean wedding ceremony went down at Gazebo 55 bathed in a warm, golden light during sunset against the backdrop of the ocean. The proximity to the ocean the rhythmic sounds of waves providing a natural and soothing symphony, adding an extra layer of tranquility to the celebration.

Staccee and Mo lit up the night with their first dance amid sparklers and fireworks. They even dove into the hora tradition, getting lifted on chairs for a dose of cultural celebration.

As the sun dipped below the horizon on the big day, the white beach gazebo lit up with a vibrant reception. The dance floor transformed into a melting pot of all of Stacee and Mo’s personal favorite tunes. Did we say how every single guest had the most unique and expressive personality? Everyone seemed straight out of a romantic comedy! The dance photos speak more than any words will ever express. Our Geekoto flashes didn’t miss a moment and our MagMod modifiers cast dramatic light in all the right directions. And Aftershoot helped us edit with blazing precision.

Post-reception, the party moved to casita 26 for an after-party by the pool, creating a laid-back, starlit vibe.

The next day the entire crew hopped on a catamaran for a day-after cruise against the Caribbean Sea backdrop. And yes, we dove in with them for some fun underwater photography. Snorkeling adventures became shared stories of exploration, putting the finishing touch on Stacee and Mo’s Mexican Caribbean wedding.
