Wedding planner Kristin Banta and event design firm R. Jack Balthazar created a gothic-chic affair. The celebration progressed through five candle-lit areas of the manor, each outfitted with red and black flowers as well as vintage decor meant to give guests the feeling of stumbling upon an abandoned Victorian estate. Each table was named after one of the pair's beloved pets; the head table was dubbed "Dracula" for their black Pomeranian.
