'Til Death Do Us Part: Haunted Shoot at Maxwell Mansion

A speakeasy wedding turns ghostly with skeletal makeup and a dark twist.

Photographer Elyse Bullard couldn't wait for the Halloween season to begin, so she got in touch with a few local vendors and began pulling together a haunted styled shoot. The history at Maxwell Mansion inspired a 1920's themed shoot for the beginning of the day, with the bride in a lacy sleeveless gown and carrying a rich red and maroon bouquet. As the sun went down, things began to change. The couple transformed into skeletal beings in black attire and toasted one another with blood-red goblets. Gold, maroon and deep purple accents glittered from the table where a black cake dripped with fruit. At the end of the evening, a vintage motorcoach arrived to whisk the couple back to the underworld.
