Christina and Edward adore Halloween, and combined a meaningful ceremony with a grand Halloween wedding ball like pros. Edward's aunt, a graphic designer, created the huge replicas of vintage monster movie posters and the photo booth props, as well as the invitations and save-the-date cards.

Every detail from the candy buffet with black cat-shaped licorice pieces to the live music sung by their good friend (and Wolf Man) was seriously fun, spooky, and rave-worthy. You've got to see it…

  1. This wedding made me smile. Victorian Halloween is my favorite and all the details really reminded me of that.
