Haunting Elegance

Never in a million years would I have thought a Colorado wedding inspired by Dia de Los Muertos and Halloween would be the wedding that tops all in my heart, but gorgeous couple, Candice and Teddy, had us smiling from ear to ear all day long. Their wedding is bright, casual and whimsical all at once and had the cool factor that comes naturally to few and is impossible to emulate, proving to be more treat than trick!


Candice and Teddy were inspired to have an October out-of-the-ordinary wedding for their guests who were traveling from Texas to join them. They wanted a bright, fun, romantic fall wedding with a vintage touch. To bring their vision to life, they incorporated orange, ivory and black linens, colorful bouquets, candles galore, pumpkins of every size, and Almond Joys in organza favor bags.


Details we love:

  • Bride Candice handmade the bridesmaids bouquets and her husband Ted handmade their spooky-themed table numbers.
  • In Texas fashion, the bride walked down the aisle with her father to the song “Rose of My Heart” by Johnny Cash. Teddy’s close childhood friend married the couple, they performed an aspen planting ceremony and Teddy’s sister read the Apache Blessing Poem. After the ceremony, the newlyweds walked through their family tossing rose petals upon them, an they then rode off in a golf cart!
  • Candice and Ted had fall-flavored mini cheesecakes and wedding cake made from Cheesecake Therapy.  Their cake was decorated with Day of the Dead bride and groom sugar skulls.
  • All the bridesmaids wore orange dresses with black heels and the bride rocked orange heels to match their dresses.
Thanks for sharing your hauntingly beautiful day with us, Candice and Teddy!  Congratulations!
