Happily ever afterlife! Taylor & Cory were wed on Halloween night at the Tamarack Lodge in Voluntown, CT.
Taylor and Cory are big movie fans and there were so many nods to their favorite cult classic, Beetlejuice. From Cory’s green slime hightops to the officiant’s copy of Handbook for the Recently Deceased, every aspect of the event had a fun, campy element
It isn’t every day that our team gets to work a wedding on Halloween night! Tamarack Lodge is a beautiful resort by day, but don’t go wandering the edges of the property at night. This former summer camp has plenty of spooky spots including a graveyard and abandoned cabins.
The ceremony altar was completed with 2 dozen black candles which glowed against the wood paneling of the lodge.
Taylor wore a traditional bridal gown but added some sexy spider web earrings and lace up bat sneaks to dance the night away.
Guests were told not to dress in costume, but to instead embrace the unofficial color of Beetlejuice, purple!
We spent months collecting old blooms from other couple’s weddings to create a stockpile of “dead” blooms. These blooms would make up the bulk of the ceremony arch as well as filled the little poison bottles we placed down the long reception tables. It was so much fun searching for the spikiest, most twisted, and eeriest flowers and foliage since these types of items aren’t on our usual request list for weddings.
Taylor and Cory were referred to us by Sarah Brehant Events. Sarah and her team were just as excited as we were to talk about all the details that would make this wedding one of the most unique we’d ever done.
