Blogger Midnightinthegardenofevil recently attended a friends incredible “Haunted Mansion”-themed wedding that took place in a cemetery. The bride and groom were gracious enough to let her share a bunch of photos with the general public!
“Before the wedding, the couple mailed “Save the Date” notices to guests. These notices were very similar to the Save the Dates sent out by Disneyland for the celebration of the Haunted Mansion’s 40th Anniversary,” she explains. “The couple’s colorful tri-fold wedding invitations depicted the unique gate at the Haunted Mansion in Florida, complete with it’s ironwork bat. The invitations also featured the iconic Haunted Mansion plaque with the words “The Haunted Ghostly Wedding of Melissa and Jason” and invited guests to wear period costumes (but discouraged any gore.)
“The wedding took place at Forest Lawn Cemetery, in Glendale, California- or more precisely, in a chapel located on the cemetery’s grounds,‘ she continues. “The chapel was a reconstruction of an ancient stone church in Scotland, complete with Gothic arches. Purple and white floral arrangements made by the bride decorated the pews.
“The groom and some groomsmen had cast large plaques which then hung on homemade styrofoam-based pillars just outside of the reception area at a local hotel.
“The bride’s mother Diane- also a haunter- made a fanciful cake based on the version of the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland, Anaheim, California,” she continues, speaking on the most excellent cake ever created. “The zombie-looking cake topper was placed on the “lawn” to it’s left, and was a standard (although humorous) one repainted with green faces and hands. The homemade place card holders featured the three Hitchhiking Ghosts.”
