There are few things in life that we enjoy more than traveling together! Our next port-of-call will be our honeymoon to French Polynesia in the South Pacific. Each day there promises to bring new adventures and lasting memories - it will be such a special trip for us to share as husband and wife!

But before we take off on our adventure, we're counting the days until we get to see you and celebrate with you at our wedding over the September 20-21 weekend!

We're going to French Polynesia!

We will be beginning our journey in the far off land of the Los Angeles International Airport on Oct 1. From there, we will fly directly into Pape'ete, on the island of Tahiti Nui. We will be staying in a garden room on the famous Tahitian black sand beach. We will spend two nights here, and then will hop onto a ferry which will take us to our beachside bungalow on the island of Moorea. Over the course of our six days on Moorea we will have a series of unforgetable experiences from lagoon tours to hikes into caves. We will then leave Moorea and go to the world famous honeymoon destination of Bora Bora, where we will spend 5 nights in an overwater bungalow. Paradise found! We hope to take in all the natural beauty of Bora Bora and really experience what it's like to completely drift away to another world!
