Dearest Family and Friends,

Kevin and I want you to know that your presence at our wedding, along with your love and best wishes are the greatest gifts we could ask for! The time, effort, and expense of traveling to be with us is something we deeply appreciate in our hearts, and we are so thrilled that we will be able to share this special moment in our lives with you.

We cannot believe that we are going to French Polynesia for our honeymoon! We are so excited to experience our first real adventure as a married couple. The memories from this trip will last a lifetime. It is for that reason that we created a honeymoon registry.

We'll be sure to capture these exciting memories with photos and and share them with you along with our most heartfelt thank you's.

We can't wait to see you at the wedding (or earlier!).

Love,

Kevin and Sarah

We're going to Moorea and Bora Bora!

Kevin and I are traveling to french Polynesia for our honeymoon! We both love tropical destinations, so this is a perfect choice for us. I'm even brushing up on speaking French (with the help of Google Translator) and learning some polynesian phrases. We are lucky enough to split our trip between two islands, Moorea and Bora Bora.

We will relax on Moorea for 6 days. We can't wait to take an ATV tour, snorkel in the coral reefs, dine in fantastic restaurants, taste the local fare at smaller cafés, immerse ourselves in Tahitian culture, and perhaps shop for a black pearl (or two). Compared to Bora Bora, Moorea has more to explore on the island itself, so we will rent a car or scooter and tour the entire island, visiting gorgeous beaches with warm, clear water.

After 6 adventurous days on Moorea, we head over to Bora Bora for 8 days of relaxation and romance. We are so lucky to be staying at the Intercontinental Thalasso Resort and Spa! Even better, we have booked an overwater bungalow! The Thalasso is an eco-friendly resort and is the first hotel in the world to use deep sea water to operate the air conditioning system, which helps conserve energy. Deep sea water (water from 3000 feet deep in the ocean) is loaded with "good for you" minerals and is also used in their famous spa. On Bora Bora, we will take jet ski tour of the island, feed stingrays and black tip sharks, explore a reef full of marine life, kayak, float in the ocean and enjoy amazing cuisine! October is right in the middle of humpback whale season. We dearly hope to see some of these majestic creatures in the wild, along with spinner dolphins.

During our entire trip, we will be taking photos to show our friends and family when we return.

We are so thrilled to be fulfilling this dream of ours after we've vowed to love and care for one another for the rest of our lives. What an amazing start to our marriage!

Thalasso comes from the Greek words 'sea' and 'therapy'. These treatments are pricey, but we'd love to experience several of the unique treatments at the Intercontinental Thalasso's famous spa. It will be our very first time visiting a spa together.

The Toatea Crêpe Bar gets rave reviews and is located on our resort on Moorea. At night, they turn the lights on in the water so we can see the sea life while we enjoy a delicious dessert. We'd love to visit more than once!
