An elegant Hallowedding on Friday the 13th with a love potion ceremony & a flower ghoul

We had a Halloween theme and got married on Friday the 13th. We walked down a black and white striped aisle runner where our very close friend Jonny married us, and instead of a unity candle or sand ceremony we did a cocktail ceremony pouring red and blue booze from potion bottles over dry ice in a skull glass that we called a love potion. My friend Mike was our flower ghoul!

Haunted romance: a moody Halloween evening of medical and mortuary science

Halloween fell on a Thursday and we fell in love with two separate venues so we decided to have it be a two-day event: the International Museum of Surgical Science was the perfect setting for our ceremony while we had our reception at Jacob Henry Mansion. The mansion matched our tastes exactly and was the perfect backdrop for an Autumn evening celebration. I lovingly refer to our wedding as a "haunted romance."

A magical Italian fall wedding inspired by autumn leaves

Morena and Fabio were married at Masseria Bonelli in Noci, Italy in a warm, magical, sun-lit Italian wedding. You have to see her pink vintage-inspired dress and matching hat, their luscious fruit-covered cake, their sweet bow-tied pooch, and the dried flowers and rustic touches everywhere.
