Say I do in a picturesque island paradise. An ideal setting for destination wedding and vow renewals. The French polynesia's dramatic mountains, shimmering lagoons and fragrant flowers enhance any romantic occasion. A bride and groom could not ask for perfect place for their wedding than Tahiti.
Tahiti is a perfect wedding destination because it's far enough away to feel like you are really taking break from your everyday life. In Tahiti there is no over developed beaches, no crowds, very little commercialism. But the most marked difference is the local people. Everyone is so nice and truly happy. and who would not live in place with relatively no crime high standard of living and stunningly beautiful vistas everywhere you look.
The highlights of French Polynesia are too many to list, but they included taking a thrilling tour of Bora Bora with Miki Miki Jet ski, swimming with dolphins on the island of moorea, snorkeling with black tipped sharks, giant clams, eight foot giant moray eels and a huge school of snappers in the coral ringed lagoon of rangiroa, opening coconuts and squeezing the milk directly into our eager mouths, taking an incredible boat ride under the stars and eating poisson cru, which is raw Tahitian tuna marinated in coconut milk and lime juice. Another highlight is Tahiti is known for its black pearls., which come in rainbow of colors from gold to pink and green and nearly black. Going to Tahiti and not visiting all islands is like going to Disney land and not leaving the hotel.
Traditional Tahitian commitment ceremony on the beach is organized entirely by hotel.On the big day, the bride and groom were taken to their rooms and dressed in Tahitian wedding pareos. Pareos are essentially larkge cloths that Polynesians wrap around themselves in a zillion different ways to make beautiful dresses, wraps, skirts, tops etc. The wedding preos are generally bright white. The dresser decorates the bride and groom gorgeously.They also wear fresh flowers behind the ears.Flowers are used like wedding rings in Tahiti, with a twist. A bloom behind your left ear means you are taken, behind your right means you are available.With pareos in place and bloom tucked behind left ears, we were taken from the back door of our bungalow by an outrigger canoe that took us to beach where ceremony will be held.
During the ceremony, bride and groom were serenaded by musicians playing traditional Polynesian love songs and accompanied by beautiful dancers as well as two boys blowing conch shells. Then receive blessing from Polynesian priest, exchanged flower leis and crowns, promised to love and be grateful for each other and cried big sappy tears of joy.
The priest tied long thick palm leaves around each of their wrists to symbolize their union saying Ua riro orua ei Ho'e" which means "the two of you become one". We were given fresh cocnut punch to drink while they were wrapped in a giant green and red tifaifai quilt and treated to another dance.
Finally they climbed back into the outrigger and returned to beautiful room to find a bottle of champagne, a custom made vegan wedding cake and the bed covered with flower petals. The bride and groom feel thoroughly spoiled.
Taking the time before the wedding to get away without cell pnones and e mail turned out to be a really good thing. The bride and groom could connect with each other and focus on the point of our wedding.Tahiti and her islands were such a gift to the newly wedded couple.
