Maeva & JB live in France, and they planned a destination wedding in Moorea this past July. Their immediate family and friends from France, as well as a few friends who live in Tahiti, joined them for an amazing vacation doubled with a beautiful multi-day wedding celebration in Moorea!
Maeva was born in Tahiti (thus the Tahitian first name) but her parents moved back to France as she was a kid. She and JB had spent a year in Tahiti for work a few years back, so they knew this is where they wanted to get married.
Maeva reached out to me over 2 years ago to help them plan their destination wedding in Moorea, and to determine what budget they’d need to make their dream a reality. Only later on in the process did we find out that some of her family is originally from the same place as I am… what a small world!
Maeva & JB wanted a very simple, laid-back celebration… no fuss, just laughs and quality time with their loved ones. They rented a gorgeous beach-front vacation rental villa in Moorea (which unfortunately will no longer be offered as a vacation rental house past April 2018, leaving very few options for a vacation rental home for your wedding in Moorea), they did their couple photo shooting around Moorea in the morning, and had a traditional Tahitian wedding ceremony facing the lagoon and ocean in the afternoon; that was followed by a cocktail served in the backyard of the villa, and a dinner cooked by JB himself, who’s a Chef!
It was a fun, very relaxed wedding day and I’m so glad we were part of it.
Thank you Maeva & JB for trusting us in handling your special day! We wish you the greatest of happiness!
