It's all about chic dark romance at this pagan wedding in Maryland

As the artist and owner of a candle and witchcraft supply store, Lily had a specific vision for her and Joe's October wedding which included some Pagan elements. When her florist went out of business just before the wedding, Lily decided to do all her own decor. Keep an eye out for the candles with glittery sigils, a flower petal circle to get married in, and the besom they jumped over.

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."
