“Till Death Do Us Part” Wedding
From the photographer: From the Hip Photo: “Till death do us part” the traditional wedding vows exchanged by the married couple who intend to spend the remainder of their lives together. For Christy and Danny, these words were only a mere reminder of their timeless love for each other. With gothic styled flourishes, the masterminds behind the Denver Zombie Crawl, the bride and groom themselves, conjured up a wedding that would even make Tim Burton jealous. However, Christy was no corpse bride. In fact, she glowed with absolute happiness standing next to her groom making what would generally be a spooky graveyard into a romantic and intimate backdrop for the duo. As the day continued and the ceremony began, Christy, in her classic wedding gown, made her procession down the aisle. The moment Christy and Danny intertwined fingers, looked into each other eyes and exchanged touching vows, in the form of eulogies, was a moment no one would forget.
The reception was definitely a monster mash. Each table was beautifully decorated with a unique and individual centerpiece. From old, vintage books, dominoes, chess pieces, tarot cards, and spirit boards, to mossy tablecloths and tiny music boxes, each item represented the couple in one way or another. WWII-era love notes hung from the ceiling above the dance floor where Christy danced with her father who then handed his daughter off to his son-in-law for their first waltz as a married couple.
As the couple began their first dance, Itchy-O, a Denver-based percussion-centered electronic performance band, crash-surprised the couple’s first dance with a dizzying electric cacophony. Shortly after, gorgeous ballet dancers put on a performance for Christy, Danny, and their guests.
After dancing their lives away with their friends and family, Christy and Danny drove off into the sunset in a vintage hearse with a license plate that read “til death.”
