Shopify storefront with custom checkout process using Checkout API

My background is custom e-commerce development (mostly in symfony/silus). I've been using Shopify for a few years now for smaller business and now with the API's available am trying to see what I can merge over to Shopify with smaller custom modules vs. full site builds.

My question is on the Checkout API...

Can I theoretically use the Shopify controlled front-end (theme, products, account, etc.) but leverage a custom checkout using the Checkout API?

The reason for the custom checkout is I need the ability for some additional steps and business processes in checkout that Shopify doesn't offer. The API is straightforward and looks to allow for this but I wanted to see if anyone has done this.

I appreciate your feedback.
