Dana and Kristopher held nothing back for their royal wedding, and the payoff was spectacular.
Luckily, Dana's father owns the venue, so the bride had full reign to turn Creekside Terrace in Los Gatos into a mini-Versailles. Spanish stars and chandeliers lit up the Redwoods with a luxurious glow while personalized silverware engraved with promises and golden goblets glittered in the candlelight. Tiara-shaped paperweights kept place markers from flying away. In keeping with the luxe color scheme, the cake was four layers of hand-piped roses, fleurs de lis, and pearls in gold icing that sat underneath a veiled birdcage until it was time.
Since Kristopher is in the service, he said his vows to Dana in full uniform and with a decorative sword that he later used to cut the cake. After a round of gourmet appetizers and dancing, guests partied late into the night with sparklers and champagne.
