A spooky “ghost” hiding in the window, a black cat following their path… it can only mean that it's Halloween week! Regardless of the ominous details in this shot, I love her giant bouquet and his long jacket. The bride's long, puffed sleeve and tiered hem is gorgeous too.
Sometimes a little overexposure can do wonders for creating an eerie effect, this time in the form of a ghost bride! Since the date is right on there, we know it's July 4, 1939, but in our hearts, it's a ghostly apparition. Her veil creates the most amazing silhouette for the illusion.
There was an old superstition that said if someone were to go down the cellar stairs backward on Halloween carrying a mirror, a face will be seen over their shoulder which will be that of their future husband. If you try this, don't fall down the stairs!
