Halloween Sunset Wedding in Orton [Jessica & Dustin]

Jessica & Dustin, Halloween sunset wedding

Halloween is by far my favourite holiday, so you can imagine my excitement when Jessica and Dustin contacted me while planning their Halloween sunset wedding. Jessica adores Halloween and she was not about to let the rare Saturday it fell on go to waste!

They wanted their ceremony to take place outdoors to incorporate the setting sun and chose a friend’s farm just outside of Orton. We got lucky with a gorgeous Halloween evening, and the farm had such great curvy trees to go with the theme.

Jessica wore a beautiful black wedding dress with lace accents and a black veil, and had a friend build them a coffin for a very dramatic bridal entrance. This is definitely the first wedding coffin I’ve photographed!

Congratulations, Jessica and Dustin!

Makeup: Katt Panic

To make use of golden hour before their ceremony, Jessica and Dustin chose to have a first look. (Dustin pretended to startle and run away, but quickly changed his mind when he turned around and saw his beautiful bride!)

Jessica and Dustin’s son Hunter got to be both a groomsman AND the ring bearer!

Jessica carried a tribute to her mother on her bouquet.

The groomsmen each received a sword. You never know when you may need to protect the bride and groom from Halloween monsters!

Each of the bridesmaids had a unique broom. They were some gorgeous witches!

Jessica may have squealed a bit in fright as her friends sealed her in the coffin, but she was committed to the plan!

Their ceremony finished just as the last bit of daylight vanished. As their guests started heading to the reception, Jessica and Dustin stayed behind with us for a few dramatic night portraits. The full moon hadn’t come out yet so these were a challenge to do in total darkness and wind, but I’m so glad the couple were game!
