Sonja and James are from Perth, Australia, and decided on a destination wedding in Paris. Their closest friends and family — about 60 total — made the trip over from Australia to join them in their celebrations. The intimate ceremony took place at the American Church in Paris, and the evening celebrations were held at the Four Seasons Hotel George V.
