It's rare when we see Halloween and weddings collide — it takes a certain type of couple or creative to bring a holiday that's associated with spine-chilling and turn it into a celebration that's stunning. But our round-up of inspiration shoots, engagement sessions and, yes, Halloween weddings, proves that it can be done.
