Since being shared on social media, the post has garnered more than 42,000 retweets and more than 150,000 likes.
The couple exclusively told Pop Sugar that they chose Paris as their dream wedding destination because it "is just such a fairy tale and regal city." They added:
"It was just the perfect place for a dream wedding. We knew that it would be a beautiful place for our family to experience."
The Eiffel Tower can be seen in their photos and they feel that Paris perfectly suited their personalities and what they wanted for their dream day.

They had been engaged since 2015 and drew inspiration from "so many weddings happening in the months leading up to ours."
That included Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal wedding in May, and James wanted an elaborate cape inspired by the family. Ricardo joked:
"He wanted to make sure we had a royal wedding, and it just worked out perfectly with the palace setting that we decided on for the ceremony."
In one of the images, the train of his suit can be seen spread over the steps of the Petit Palais art museum, with the gold embroidery clearly visible.
The top of the train was decorated with flowers, and Ricardo looked dashing in a less-dramatic navy suit with champagne-colored tie.
They posed at the Musee Des Beaux de la Ville de Paris, and the stunning photos were captured by their photographer of choice, Krystal Kenney.
The regal cape and train was designed by the couple and constructed by Alexandria Daniels, while Sebastian Cruz Couture provided the suits.
