Day Of The Dead Celebration
Couples choose Halloween themed weddings for dozens of reasons. For some, Halloween represents a time where we honor all shades of light in life, even the darkness. It's a hauntingly beautiful perspective. This real wedding aims to honor both life and death through it's colorful decor and alternative traditions:
"The colourful aesthetic of the Day of the Dead lent itself beautifully to the idea that both life and death can be celebrated at a wedding. Even though we vow to love our partners until death, there is an unbreakable bond that extends beyond the physical world. Celebrating death at a wedding is hardly conventional but it can be done beautifully and respectfully.”
