A Dia de los Muertos-themed Sedona wedding in the Arizona mountains

Molly and Chris are from Ohio and decided to have a destination wedding in Sedona, AZ. Their main goal was just to be married among family and friends without a lot of "hoopla," as they put it. A handful of the twenty or so guests invited helped set up the tent with traditional Mexican-themed decor such as sugar skulls, colorful flowers, and masks. In fact, all of the guests received masks as favors!

Let's explore this gorgeous Sedona wedding…

Sugar skulls, succulents, and lanterns abound at this Dia de los Muertos wedding (with bonus GROOT CAKE!)

Arlene and Jared have always wanted to get married in the fall as it’s their perfect weather in Northern California. They're also fully into all things Halloween, their Mexican culture, Dia de los Muertos, and sugar skulls, so this theme was a no-brainer. They chose a restaurant with authentic and fresh Mexican food and decor, Milagros Cantina, which meant decorating was far easier. But a few skulls, lanterns, terracotta pots, and succulents made an appearance. Jared’s brother Rian helped out by hiring a few of his music students to be our string quartet for the ceremony. Let's peek at this Dia de los Muertos wedding in Redwood City, California.

Bind two souls for eternity: Our short Halloween wedding ceremony script

Although I did not grow up with a heritage which embraces Dia de Los Muertos, I always felt like Halloween is truly a day when the veil between this world and the next is its thinnest. I also believe in eternal marriage — that is that a marriage can bind two souls for eternity instead of "til death." While my husband is atheist, and I currently don't identify with a specific religion, my husband was extremely willing to let me create a Halloween wedding ceremony script that would include some spiritual undertones.
