Haunted Honeymoon (part 1)

M is truly my Haunted wicKED Wife if you will. She booked our hotel DIRECTLY adjacent to one of Gatlinburg TN's most famous haunted attractions. The Mystery Manor! You could hear the creepy music and screams from our 8th floor balcony. I could even see the antique horse drawn hearse if I leaned out. The parking garage had a little walkway lined with cemetery fencing so you could accesses the haunt and bypass the street!

Thats us way up there on the eight floor with the light on. Notice how the haunt lights up the side of the hotel!

It was a lot of fun. Great prop work inside and lots of drop panels. Sadly, no cameras allowed inside.

There is the hearse from my our balcony.

I also happened to notice a graveyard while looking around with my new telephoto lens.

We walked all over the place taking in the sights.

Our view at night.

Almost a creepy carnival feel.

It is our tradition to ride the Stone Horse in The Village. 

Bear is getting a little friendly.

Just creepy!

This great haunted attraction was just down the street from us. unfortunately we did not have time to go time we will for sure. There are 8 haunted attraction within walking distance of each other.

Headless Horseman.

The wedding finally got to her!

Meet Stumpy. He is an undead street heckler that tells you what he really thinks in an effort to get you to come in!

Just bizarre.

I tried to return M, but I left my receipt at home.

A 5D haunted experience. Very Cool building!

M wanted to take the door home.

Wicked Wedding Wrapup.

The wicked wedding had to be the best day of our lives. It was funny, beautiful, and perfect! We are still talking about it! We are still waiting for the professional photos but we did get a ton from family and friends.There were a few Haunted Highlights of the wedding I would like to point out.

It had rained most of the week. We had a gutter system fail at the house and it flooded the bar room on the night of rehearsal. Luckily, my friends came to help and we got everything back to pristine condition and made it to the church on time. The day just opened up and was beautiful for the wedding.

That's my best friend and best man....we are being normal.

M getting ready. She loves to photobomb her selfies....

The Bride, flower girl and bridesmaids all acting silly before the wedding.

The Groomsmen and I acting up before we go out. We walked out to the tune of Star Wars's Imperial March. So many people commented on that!

The church we got married in was absolutely beautiful! It is also soon to be famous as it was used in a soon to be released movie where there is a wedding scene much like ours!

The pastor said, "You may now kiss the bride and update your facebook status!" The church rolled in laughter. We even got photo bombed by the pastor.

Here is what it looked like in our actual facebook post!

All of the groomsmen had super hero shirts under their tuxes. We have great photos of us revealing our secret identities that I will post later.

My Grooms Cake. M totally surprised me with this! One of my employees made it, even brought it to work and I did not notice a thing!  Plus I get the cool bride and groom busts as a keep sake! I notice a theme with M reiterating ,"till death do us part". I may have to go undead if things turn south!

The cake tasted great plus it turned your mouth black!

Thumbs up if you're wicKED!

The longest day of the year and a Wicked Wedding.

Today marks the day that M and I tie the knot. Since our bachelor and bachelorette parties were on Friday the 13th during a full moon, I feel that it is just another cool sign that we are getting married on the longest day of the year, The Summer Solstice. May it mean our lives will be long and full together!
