A Sophisticated Halloween-Inspired Wedding

OK, Tressa and John's wedding was quite a special one! The couple loves Halloween, they love to entertain, and they love to party - and their super-fun wedding was a perfect reflection of all of that. There were so many fun aspects of this wedding - the location, the decor, the stationary, the food, the guests in costumes, the various performances - all I can say is WOW! And it all was perfectly coordinated by Megan Keller and her team at A Kurant Event.
Georgetown Ballroom was transformed into a fun and spooky club-like theater with live band, aerialists, drag queen, 80's arcade games, Halloween props, and much more. Their goal of "awesome party to celebrate with all our friends" was sure met.
I have trouble limiting the number of fabulous images by Barbie Hull Photography, so you will have a lot to look at - enjoy!!

Tressa and John  - one of the most fun wedding couples ever

Tressa's bouquet contained deep red and deep purple roses, calla lilies, and orchids - paired with long black ostrich feathers and large black spider brooches it made a super elegant and spooky Halloween bouquet

 How is this for a bouquet handle?

 Isn't Tressa's dress simply gorgeous??!!

John's fun boutonniere - complete with a sparkly squirrel brooch ...
The bridal party

The ceremony setup was lush and luxurious - combination of lush red flowers, tall black branches adorned with crystal strands and orchid blooms, lots of crystal candelabras, and red raped velvet curtains in the back. Can it get more dramatic and beautiful?

Later in the evening,  Tressa and John changed into 80's style costumes: Tressa into a fabulous Madonna dress, and John into a Tom Cruise outfit from "Risky Business" (complete with no pants, Ray Bans, and candle stick to sing to) 
And to top it all off they made their exit in a Barbie Dream Hearse!
