Dena and Greg met many years ago.  They ran into each other later in life and fell in love.  They decided to get married at Lucie Stern Community Center in Palo Alto.  It was a lovely location then soon filled with family and friends who were excited to celebrate their love.  They had a Isaiah Pekary violinist before the ceremony, while Dena walked down the aisle and during cocktail hour while.

Dena and Greg didn’t have bridesmaids and groomsmen but had special friends who helped them get ready for the wedding.  Dena’s father was especially exited to walk his little girl down the isle for the first time. She wore an Oscar De La Renta wedding gown from Glamour Closet in San Francisco.

The decorations were so thoughtful starting with a step a repeat backdrop and red carpet that they photographed against with every single group of family and friends.  What a great way to remember who came to your wedding.  She had her food catered by Cheat a Little, their officiant Rick Chavez and DJ Andy Dyson.

She had elegant florals throughout ordered online at Thebouqs and the decor was something that they loved – WINE!.  The gorgeous cake was made by greg’s sister and Dena’s brother Loren Gold (who was in the band The Who) played a sweet song for the bride and groom on the piano.
