Okay, yes, we're moving away from the season of skeletons and spooks, BUT. I owe it to you all to show you this one last spooky glam wedding! Crissa made for an awesome corpse bride when she and TJ got married earlier this fall. She styled her own look — thanks in part to her grandmother's wedding dress, a skirt of her own, and some choice accessories from Lovechild Boudoir. TJ absolutely kept up with his own Victorian corpse groom costume, and Crissa's daughter joined in the fashion fun as a sparkly princess. A walking stick for TJ, a bouquet of dried roses for Crissa, and hand tattoos for both instead of rings completed the whole ensemble.
Where better to show off a fabulous Victorian look than one of the oldest neighborhoods in the US? Before heading off to their ceremony, Crissa and TJ strutted their stuff in Elfreth's Alley in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. (I love the photo of Crissa cat-walking toward some colonial-period re-enactors).
Following their wedding in a retro bowling alley, the reception included details like bottles of Love Potion No. 9, guests in elaborate costumes, and sparklers with glittery matchboxes as favors. Make sure you eyeball that ghostly cake too! Then pause to appreciate a very sexy cake feeding. Take notes, y'all. That's the way to do it.
