Satanic wedding: Celebrating in Hell on Devils Night

We got married in Hell, Michigan and did most of our photos beforehand at the Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit. We wanted a whole “Wed Til’ We’re Dead” mood, and the location definitely helped…

Our wedding was VERY unapologetically us. I love books and reading, my husband loves D&D and roleplaying, and we both love puzzles and escape rooms — so our wedding encompassed all of it. Everywhere we could infuse a bit of flavor to fit these themes, we did.

Sara, a genderqueer bride, made that stylish leather jacket, and chose to play with other wedding traditions by wearing gold glitter Doc Martens for that something new, and Van Gogh’s Starry Night socks for the something blue.
