Will this bride and groom manage to stave off their undead wedding party?

Apparently Matt and Sheri throw an annual Halloween party of epic proportions. After checking out the photos of their Massachusetts wedding last year, I'm not inclined to challenge that. At least, not if I don't want to be eaten by an undead wedding party.

Matt and Sheri decreed that every wedding guest would arrive properly arrayed in costume, and photographer Jamie Ivins tells me he saw Rosie the Riveter, Queen Elizabeth, and a family of Smurfs. You can see for yourself that Elvis was the officiant.

But the award for the best group costume goes to the wedding party. I mentioned they were undead, right? Matt and Sheri and the photographer had more than a little fun with a wedding-meets-zombie-apocalypse photoshoot at the end of the day. Which is awesome. Oh, but then there's the little zombie flower girl carrying a severed foot wrapped with a bouquet. And then her zombie escort is beyond adorable. I just… I can't decide what my favorite photo is at all.
