Four Seasons Bora Bora
BP 547, Motu Tehotu
98730, French Polynesia
Ann and Conrad hail from Minneapolis, MN, where they run a successful restaurant together: Pizzeria Lola. If you are a fan of Food Networks Diner Drive-Ins and Dives, you may have seen their restaurant featured. It was the episode with Matthew McConaughey and foodie Andrew Zimmern. They’re famous! Anyway, Ann and Conrad have been together for several years and wanted to do something different and special for their wedding. They decided to elope and have a Four Seasons Bora Bora wedding!!
Bora Bora is accessed via Tahiti, an 8-hour place ride from Los Angeles on Air Tahiti Nui. Once there its a 45-minute small plane ride to the island. Its a lot closer than it seems, basically just a couple of hours longer than the time it takes to get to Hawaii. Once you land in Bora Bora, its a short boat or ferry ride to any of the hotels. Most of the photos below were shot on their wedding day. The photos where they are wearing the traditional Tahitian wedding pareus (white sheets) and where they are in the water were photographed on the following day where we spent a great deal of time dodging the rain. A very special thanks to all of the ladies at the Four Seasons Bora Bora: Marie Perrier, Aurélie, and Melissa Lorenz. And especially to Ann and Conrad who trusted us to fly half way across the Pacific to document their special trip! Mauruuru!
