Leïana and Yorick’s decision to get married in Bora Bora is the best they could have made. With its palm-thatched bungalows over dazzling cobalt waters and its pineapple fields leading to mountaintop vistas, French Polynesia is a luxe tropical oasis with infinite beauty to spare. Three days of celebrations planned by Bloom Wedding Agency and designed/orchestrated by The Elegant Ninja burst with such captivating details as a frond-meets-coral-bloom backdrop, a woven coconut leaf canoe (or va’a) for the Bridal Entrance and traditional island entertainment including hula and fire dancing. You can see why we might find this Tahitian inspiring to say the least! Paulina Cadoret Film & Photography crafts a delightful window into the rich culture of a South Pacific wedding, so one never has to wonder what it’s like to get married in Bora Bora. Spoiler alert: it calls you.
If you don’t consider this your sign to get married in Bora Bora, well, we don’t know what will! Personally, I shall be marveling at this splendorous multi-day fete without shame for decades to come. If you’ve been following Ruffled long enough, you know how celebrations rooted in the destination’s cultural heritage just do it for me. What can I say? There are too many incredible marriage traditions around the world for us not to share! Case in point? This vibrant Kona Beach wedding. Go there next for all the Polynesian wedding vibes!
