Theme weddings are a big things these days, be it a rustic barn wedding, nautical theme wedding on the Connecticut coast or in this case, Megan and Jason's Halloween theme wedding.  When Megan and Jason approached me to be their photographer they talked about their plans for a Halloween Theme Wedding.  All guests and vendors were required to to wear costumes.  I embraced the idea and wore a prison suit costume which would allow me to be flexible and easy to move while photographing their wedding.   Their wedding started at the Goodwin Hotel in downtown Hartford, a upscale metropolitan hotel.  Groom, Jason had a barber come to the hotel to get Jason ready with a shave and haircut.  Next Megan had her hair and make up beautifully done with Halloween fingernails and a spider hair pin.  Her wedding veil was so perfect for her look with some pre-wedding Halloween portraits at the hotel.
