A Halloween Wedding

by Yisell Santos


As September comes to a close and October creeps on in, I find myself thinking of my dear friends Nadiene and Miguel.  Since moving to Northern Virginia and leaving a lot of friends and family in NYC behind, every time Halloween comes near I can't help but think of them and the amazing wedding they had last year.   

When two dear friends of mine announced that they were getting married, I was so happy.  Happy because they are so extremely perfect for each other.  Happy because I was asked to be a bridesmaid and happy because I get to do makeup for one of the most important days of her life.

And then they told me that it was going to be a Halloween themed wedding.  My heart skipped a beat!  My favorite holiday!  I could have done back flips because knowing my friend, this was going to be a glamorous Fall wedding.  And it so was.  There were pumpkins, orange flowers, jeweled spiders and vampire teeth placement card holders.

If a Halloween wedding is something that you've thought about, but don't exactly know where to begin, let these pictures inspire you.
