Opting for an Oceania Paradise
Secluded and remote, the island nations of the Pacific Ocean appeal to couples with a strong desire to marry in an exotic place as close to paradise and as far away from civilization as anywhere on earth. Romantic overwater bungalows built just for two, pristine beaches without another soul or structure in sight, and ancient cultures that invite you to share their traditions are all part of the appeal of having a destination wedding in this part of the world.
Getting to these islands involves considerable flying time. Direct flights from Los Angeles to Papeete’s Faa’a Airport in French Polynesia, serviced by Air New Zealand, Air France, and Air Tahiti Nui, take about 7 1/2 hours. From New York’s JFK Airport, Air Tahiti Nui flies to Papeete in 13 hours. Flights to Fiji, the Cook Islands, and the Maldives are even lengthier and may involve additional short flights to reach even more distant spots.
