I’ve always adored Halloween, mostly because of the warm and deep colors that wash the earth during the fall season and the excitement in the air for Fall Festivals, corn mazes and the awesome movies that start appearing on Hallmark 😀
I do love the spooky side of Halloween as well since the thought of Ghosts and Ghouls are such a mystery. I don’t believe in any of that nonsense being a Christian of course and we don’t Celebrate it but we have good clean fun out of the Holiday instead. This year we went to Tennessee for Halloween and a fall vacation with family. It was so much fun dressing up and walking the streets of Gatlinburg collecting candy from all of the little country shops. After hunting for candy we went to the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Haunted House experience. I wasn’t that impressed with the Ripley’s experience but the kids got a kick out of it. Even though Halloween is over, I’d love to share a recently published wedding that I captured LAST Halloween. This is Terra and Chris Bunch. You’ll be seeing a bunch of them in the future because I just captured their Maternity session and their little one’s newborn session is coming up in the next few months. When I asked Terra to write me a little something about their love story, this is what she wrote me 😀 LOVE:
“It all started one Halloween night. Chris and I were both attending our favorite annual spooky event, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. We were each going with mutual friends who were meeting each other, but that night Chris and I started as strangers. We spent that night exploring haunted house after haunted house with our friends, getting closer and closer as the night went on. Chris made every attempt to comfort me and guide me through each house, meanwhile I wasn’t having it – I was the brave soul who wanted to go through each house first, in the front of the line, needing no comforting or hand on my back to help guide me. We had so much fun that night, and even though I wasn’t needing the gentlemanly gestures of comfort Chris was trying to provide in that time of great “fear”, he had left a lasting impression. That night set the tone for our future. We felt like we had known each other for so long, yet had just met. After a few weeks, Chris and I started talking casually, and a few months after that we began dating. The rest is history as they say! From the beginning, the thing that brought us together and connected us the most was our mutual passion for anything Halloween related. We both grew up watching classic horror films, and both developed a deep love for all things spooky, haunted, and bizarre. Halloween started it all for us, and is where our love story truly began. It was only fitting that we chose the best day of the whole year, the one that was most important to us, to celebrate our love and join as husband and wife – and that is why we chose Halloween for our wedding. Our wedding theme was gothic and dark yet romantically haunting – much like the holiday we hold so dear. The rich reds, golds and blacks were chosen with my favorite Broadway show in mind, The Phantom of the Opera. Everything came together beautifully, and the reception kicked off with the Monster Mash to set the tone for the best “Halloween party” we have ever thrown, one we will continue to celebrate each year on that very special, spooky day.”- Terra Bunch
