Gorgeously Dark Halloween Wedding with the “Ride or Die” Theme

About The Southern Social TX - Wedding magazine for Texas brides

As a personal project, the owners of Lizzy Gator Events built a life-size, real wood, electric chair. We know we had to create a creepy yet gorgeous fall-inspired Halloween styled shoot centered with the “ride or die” theme. We featured cascading florals, a seven-foot tree, green velvet drapes, black taper candles, mixed-matched chairs, fog, two neon signs, a black cake, smoking cocktails, and “blood” gift favors. To top off the evening, was a sliver 1958 Mercedes 220 convertible.

This never-before-seen before Halloween wedding inspiration that has a wildly in love couple, willing to embrace the “ride or die” midset to marriage. Fate has brought Katia and Chanz together for 11 years. They are wonderfully unique in the fact that they have two kids, bought a house, and now getting married. They don’t mind mix-up tradition with an unconventional wedding at an uncommon location.

Our Halloween inspiration comes from the free-spirit spooky vibe. The design came together by brainstorming with myself, the venue owners, the florist, and our rental coordinator over some red wine and an art tour of the venue. During that power hour, we decided to have all the wedding professionals wear black. We became “ghost guests” during the ceremony to witness the love these two beautiful humans share. My favorite part was when Katia excitedly tossed her bouquet into the air after they kissed. Fate has brought them together for 11 years. Katia and Chanz are wonderfully unique in the fact that they have two kids, bought a house, and now getting married.
