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.

Karina & Taylor's vintage style, music, and zombies wedding

This music-loving pair reunited at a concert and got engaged at a concert! Music is in their bones. But don't forget their love of vintage style and of course… zombies! It's a wild mix of styles that all seem to make total sense once you see it. Their solution to a grounds mishap on the venue property is pretty genius. But don't miss the adorable hot air balloon centerpieces and Shaun of the Dead cake, too. It's uh… got a little red on it.

5 ways you can rock your engagement photos AND save the dates

As a wedding photographer I pretty much love engagement sessions — for me, they're a great way for me to get to know the couple I'm working with and for the couple to get to know me. For couples, they're a fun way to capture a period in your life that DOESN'T directly involve the wedding — it's just you and yours, doing your thing. Engagement photos also often serve a second purpose: you can make really amazing save the date cards using the photos from your session. That is, assuming you like the photos in the first place! So how can you make sure you love your engagement photos?

Robin & Ken's retro pin-ups and greasers rockabilly wedding

This pair of rockabillies wanted to go all-out with retro style: record place settings, cake centerpieces with tattoo designs, pin-up and greaser stations (for timely coifs!), and a killer band. You have to see what the groom did at the reception to surprise the bride. Let's just say it involves Elvis. Oh, and I think the groom's "cake" will appeal to some of you.
