5) The Church Ceremony
Church of Saint Germain l'Auxerrois located across from the Louvre Museum. If you're in Paris, it's located 2, Place du Louvre, Paris 75001.
6) The Wedding Reception
Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte, an awesome 17th-century castle located in Maincy - about 30 miles southeast of Paris. It's about a 30 minute train ride.

7) Gifts for Guests
As an ultra luxurious gift for guests, each female guest received a Van Cleef & Arpels Sweet Alhambra bracelet. Based on the iconic Alhambra design, the bracelets come in 18K yellow gold with a miniature mother-of-pearl clover charm. If you're as rich as Eva, there would be no need for a favor budget, here. However, it is certainly inspiring to be able to give something nice to guests!
