The dress at this Gothic Halloween wedding is giving us googly eyes

Nick and Alexandra are high school sweethearts who came together again and found love. They're both into Gothic styles, architecture, and old cemeteries, so their gothic Halloween wedding totally capitalized that aesthetic. The Russell House in Springfield, TN offered a historic backdrop that fit the theme perfectly. Just wait until you see Alexandra's black and white Victorian-inspired corset gown! Oh, and it matches their gorgeous cake and Gothic-inspired decor, too.
