loverlee:  I heard weddings in Bora Bora are not legal in the U.S. So you will need to marry before you leave. Could be wrong.

I was going to have a planned elopement (what you’re doing) to Bora Bora but we are having a small ceremony in Hawaii with 12 guest now. I could never find a package I liked in Bora Bora, it was super frustrated. I didn’t want all the extra crap lol. I know Pearl Beach Resort also has packages.

Peachytalk:  said, unless you live in French Ploynesia for 30 days before your wedding, you can not get legally married there. I was planning on getting married at JOP before we left and then just having a ceremony there, but now there’s no need since it’s super easy to get married in Hawaii. You would also have to have all of your important documents translated to French.

This stupid site isn’t letting me edit…

But I know some of the packages have photographer/videographer but I didn’t want that. I found some that I liked. Obviously, I’ve never used them, I can only go off what’s on their website.

She was my favorite and who I was planning on using. I never could find a videographer I wanted.

ksn1219:  I took a quick look at the photos in the link you provided. They were really nice then there was this super weird photo in the “beata and Diran” album and I was like wtf? Lol. It’s a photo where the bride looks dead in the water. She looks like a great photographer Tho!”

Peachytalk:  It has been months since I’ve looked at her site (we stopped planning this and started planning Hawaii back in January/February) but I know exactly which picture you are talking about… it’s so creepy!! And idk why you would get in that nasty water with your dress haha.
