LUDINGTON, Mich. - A couple with a love of Halloween — and each other — got married at a haunted house in western Michigan.
The Muskegon Chronicle reports Jennifer Hornacek and Arturo Mendez of Ludington were married on Wednesday in a Day of the Dead-themed ceremony.
Hornacek says they "wanted to do something different" and celebrating the Day of the Dead is a tradition for Mendez and his family.
Still, the bride wasn't initially excited about the idea. She says: "At first I said no, I am not getting married in a haunted house. ... But we were out shopping and I saw this dress and everything started flowing."
The haunted house at the Eclectic Marketplace of Ludington is the creation of Dan "Danny V" Vargas, who also officiated at the wedding.
