Efim and Oksana decided to renew their wedding vows at the Navutu Stars Resort recently. They had gotten married a month ago presumably on a grand scale in Russia. The grand scale of course had to continue with what they had always dreamed of. A Fiji wedding. They couldn’t bring their family along. They did bring their wedding costumes and their love. We, on the other hand provided the lovely backdrop, fresh cut flower arch and kept the champagne flowing. With a little help from Google Translate, we made it possible for them to renew their vows as per their dream. Not being able to speak English was not a problem for us. Navutu Stars resort manager Colleen, translated the whole wedding program and blessings to Russian for Efim and Oksana. This was THEIR day and we made sure they realized their dream….
