Happy Halloween weekend! I know I’m not supposed to have favorites, but Ingrid and Juan and their Halloween wedding last year on Jekyll Island definitely hold a special place in my little heart. I’ve been waiting a whole year to show off their magical, mystical day. Now that the season is appropriate, I finally can!
When you have two creative, old souls who’d rather have a date in a cemetery than at the movies, you know you’re going to be in for a spooky treat. Plus, I just love couples that create their wedding to reflect who they are, no matter how different, quirky or unusual. I say, bring on the strange!
Ingrid drew her inspiration from Day of the Dead and Marie Antoinette, creating a visual feast of the macabre, color and whimsy. From her skeleton dress hanger to her golden bunny heels, every detail was perfect.
Ingrid designed a beautiful booklet explaining all of the rituals and symbols used in their ceremony – in Spanish and English.As a silly surprise, a friend dressed in a bear costume delivered the wedding bands – it was hysterical and perfect. Who needs a toddler ring bearer when you can have an adult ring BEAR!?After the ceremony, we stole away to driftwood beach where we created some of the most ethereal portraits.Most of all, I love this image because it speaks to me and my brand like none other. Ingrid, you mystical pink haired creature, you get me.A halloween wedding isn’t complete without a heavy dose of skull decor and the prettiest Day of the Dead cake you ever saw. The cake design was inspired by the bridesmaids’ beautiful red dresses :)The reception was full of darkly beautiful elements and significant touches, especially these custom temporary tattoos of the couple and their pets.Ingrid and Juan – words cannot describe to you enough how lucky I am to have met you and to have shared in this day. I am a lucky girl. Keeping up with you on instagram is a treat and I promise one of these trips to Boston will be for you!
