Virginie - Founder
After years in France, Mayotte, New Zealand, and Tahiti, I live now between Canada and Moorea, in French Polynesia. We choose this island several years ago with my husband for the authenticity and wild landscapes, it's a perfect mix between lagoon and mountains! I already organized more than 40 destination weddings for couples who came from all over US (California, Oregon, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, Hawaii), from Canada (British Columbia, Ontario), New Zealand, Australia, Lithuania, France, Spain, Italy, China, Japan, Taiwan, Qatar, India, Argentina, Brasil....
I have a Bachelor degree in Travel and Tourism and one in Wedding and Events but it's my first job, Photographer (https://www.svphotograph.com), who give me the real experience of wedding.
The idea for the company was conceived when Jenavi, one of my beautiful bride from Maui, Hawaii, changes the date of her wedding to have us as Photographer. She wanted a Polynesian wedding in the pure tradition and make the travel from Hawaii with her family for that but she didn't want to go on a resort. She found a house to rent near the ocean, a private home for all guests, they were around 10 with kids and her 2 boys. She changed the date she had in mind for us and her request as so meanful to me! So I proposed her to take that on me and organize a Polynesian ceremony at her place with a Polynesian dancing crew, Tahitian Officiant, flowers and vegetal ornement on the garden, also make up artist and caterer to have nothing to prepare!
After the wedding, I received a lot of my customers who asking for advice to have a intimate and authentic wedding here, I decide I have to create also a wedding planner company! Thanks Erika to pushing me to do that ;)
My aim is to connect my bride and groom from overseas with local people and local artists like dancing crew, catering, make up artist etc... I know all my partners very well, for me it's important to know them, who they are like I like discuss a lot with my bride/groom!
I also want to propose a cozy, intimate, personal wedding on stunning places, near crystal water and flowers everywhere! A real Polynesian Wedding that doesn't look like a carbon copy of everyone else's wedding! More than a wedding I want my guests have an experience, a once-a-life experience by meeting a different culture, in a different country with people they love !

Now, Heimata is taking back the familial tradition by creating beautiful Polynesian dances thanks to her husband who is in charge of music. Dancers are members of family too. This dancing team is a love and family story that grow up out of Resort.
