Did you know? 


Halloween has been a popular choice for weddings for centuries, since Pagan couples first began celebrating Samhain (pronounced ‘sow’inn’), uniting two souls in eternal love with feasts and fire.


These days, Halloween weddings are for everyone -- from Wiccans to werewolves, to gorgeous goths and cute spooky-loving ghouls and ghosts.
