Brad and Aspen Hall’s Halloween wedding was a fantasy for everyone who attended, especially the wide-eyed wee ones who dream of Halloween all year. Guests included 25 kids from 18 years to 18 months old, and Aspen and Brad packed their wedding with surprises for all ages. The post-ceremony reception in the Cedarwood barn kicked off the fun with Halloween themed games to entertain both children and adults. DIY projects for the barn by the bride’s family included: Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe using mini pumpkins on a wood barrel game board; Ball/Can Toss using different sized cans covered with theme papers and nailed to an old step ladder; Pumpkin Bowling using 2-liter beverage bottles as pins; and Pumpkin Ring Toss.
Panache Catering was perfectly in step with themed cocktail reception food…Rotten Apple Punch, oh yum! Of course the biggest edible hit was Aspen and Brad’s celebration candy bar with an assortment of Halloween trick-or-treat goodies. Aspen enlisted help from her daughters in making treat bags for the candy bar using brown paper bags with fabric flowers, gems and Halloween embellishments. Ace Photography shares some of the day’s eye candy with us in Post 2 of Aspen and Brad’s enchanted Halloween wedding.
Aspen and Brad’s wedding was enchanting, but bittersweet for the bride. Her grandfather passed away from a long battle with Parkinson’s disease the week of the wedding. Aspen’s grandparents were married under a pear tree 56 years ago, so to honor his life and the love between her grandparents, Aspen and Brad included a “Love Grows” watering ceremony. A family pear tree now grows at Cedarwood in his memory.
