About Los Gatos
Chris and Melissa met in 1996 when they passed each other in the halls at 3DO. Melissa tried to be friendly to Chris, but he was rude to her. Luckily she gave him another chance at the office holiday party, and he was much more charming the second time around!
Chris proposed on October 12, 2002. Chris and Melissa were in Lake Tahoe for a friend's wedding. After the wedding, they went outside to look at the stars. Chris pointed to a certain constellation and said there was a star there named Melissa Kirmse, and if Melissa would marry him, the star would be named after her. She was so surprised that she didn't say anything at first, but of course she said yes!
The ceremony and reception will take place at La Rochelle Cellars (formerly Mirassou Champagne Cellars) at 300 College Avenue in Los Gatos, CA. The ceremony will be outdoors and the reception will be indoors. See more pictures here!
