The newlyweds were spotted on Friday for the first time since tying the knot when they touched down in LA.
They were no doubt heading to Petra's $85 million mansion, where she is having renovation work done.
Petra and James are reportedly gearing up for a big bash at the sprawling property, which formerly belonged to TV producer Aaron Spelling.
A source described it as an "official coming out to Hollywood party".
The event is likely to be a no-expense spared affair, if their wedding is anything to go on.
Costs from the elaborate Rome nuptials included £310,000 to hire the venue – the spectacular Odescalchi Casle.
Entertainment was provided by the Black Eyed Peas who were paid a reported £1.5 million. And the bride wore a £80,000 couture gown by Vera Wang.
A slew of celebs are expected at Petra's 'just married' bash. One person who's sure to be there is the bride's sister Tamara, who has also jetted to California.
And she won't be short on party wear.
On Thursday the 27-year-old tweeted: "Morning packing leave for LA in the morning so far its 3 suitcases! Need to remove things that aren't essentials!"
