Celebrity Honeymoons

by Danielle Stein

Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay
Where: Lanai, Hawaii
The star-crossed lovers: Bill Gates hosted his million-dollar nuptials to Melinda French at the former pineapple plantation on January 1, 1994. Guests included Katharine Graham, Paul Allen, Warren Buffet, and Willie Nelson, who serenaded the crowd with "Mommas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys." Good advice, as being a technology mogul is a bit more profitable.
Lovers' nest: The resort is surrounded by five lush gardens, and dolphins can frequently be seen skipping in Hulopoe Bay right from your terra-cotta terrace.
The dirt: As if this tiny island with no direct flights from the mainland wasn't isolated enough, Bill took extra measures: He rented all of the resort's 236 rooms (despite having only 130 wedding guests), bought out all of the airplane and ferry seats to the island, rented all of the private helicopters on Maui, and paid to close the airspace over Lanai to thwart aerial paparazzi. Which begs the question—how crazy could a party thrown by a software nerd get, anyway?
