Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are honeymooning in Bora Bora, and apparently they’re not honeymooning alone.

The newlyweds -- they tied the knot Wednesday in a surprise wedding at their Bel-Air home -- were spotted arriving on the island via private plane Friday along with close friends Chelsea Handler, Jason Bateman and maid of honor Courteney Cox, People reported.

Photos of the gang on the island are so grainy they kind of look like they were taken by a photographer still back in the States, but, hey, the outfits matched what they were seen in when they headed out of Van Nuys Airport on Thursday.

They may be staying at the five-star Four Seasons Resort, according to Us Weekly, which said that Bateman brought wife Amanda Anka and Cox was accompanied by boyfriend Johnny McDaid.

Also, one mystery has been answered since Aniston, 46, and Theroux, 43, said their I do’s: the story behind the Muppet-like bride and groom that topped their wedding cake.

Seems Jen has a thing for puppets, which she disclosed to People in 2011 when quizzed about a rumor that she was adopting a baby.

“Not adopting. There’s no nursery,” she said, then pointed to a couple of Muppets on a chair in her living room. “Those are the two smallest things that exist, my Muppets. Those are my Muppets.”


Aniston said that she and Will Speck, the director of “The Switch,” which costarred Bateman, had gone to FAO Schwarz and “made Muppets of each other.”

“They are the most fun, they’ve come with me on vacations,” she told the mag. “My girlfriends, we do photo shoots with them, it’s very silly. They’ve been to Cabo so far.”

The people who baked the puppet cake, People said Thursday, had no idea it was for a wedding until they saw the paparazzi pictures after the fact.

Alas, no puppets were visible in the grainy shots from Bora Bora. Because that would have been too awesome.
