The choice of Paris

Initially, their wedding plan was an elopement in Paris, an intimate ceremony for two. However, as they shared their plans with their loved ones, Benna and Michael discovered that many wished to join them in celebrating their love. Thus, their elopement evolved into an intimate wedding gathering twenty of their closest friends and family in Paris.

Why Paris? For Benna, Paris was the obvious choice. Having grown up abroad and lived in several countries, Paris embodied the essence of European romance. It was where Benna wanted to marry her soulmate, in one of her favorite cities in the world.
