Ghosts and zombie portraits draped the walls. Severed fingers and eyeballs were carefully festooned on the food table. A tombstone wedding cake was topped with a green Frankenstein bride and groom, locked in idyllic embrace. One thing was clear enough, said Judy Rodgers, the mother of the groom. The aim of the Halloween wedding for Steve Rodgers and Crystal Merrill was pure fun/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Was there anything nontraditional about your wedding?
