Peter and Teresa love three things: each other, Disney, and all things inspired by the Haunted Mansion attraction at Disneyland. So it made perfect sense for them to tie the knot with nuptials inspired by the classic spooky ride at the Happiest Place on Earth.
But because they didn’t want their families to have to travel across the country from New York, the engaged pair decided to do the next best thing: they brought Disneyland to New York.
For their venue, the couple chose Bear Mountain State Park, located in the mountains along the west bank of the Hudson River. But more specifically, Peter and Teresa had their eyes set on the Bear Mountain Carousel inside the state park. It would provide the perfect backdrop for their wedding reception, especially since after the ceremony, guests got to ride the carousel all through the night!
Every part of the couple’s big day was inspired by the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square at Disneyland. They had help from the 999 happy haunts who live in the Haunted Mansion, as well as some very creative floral designers and an even more creative cake decorator! Just look at this Haunted Mansion-inspired wedding cake that Peter and Teresa served to their guests!
If you take an even closer look, you’ll see the intricate attention to detail on the cake. Do you see the Mickey ears on the tiny jack-o-lanterns?
Even the cake topper kept with the theme of the wedding. Each piece was a skeleton likeness of the bride and groom. (And just look at those Mickey ears!)
Teresa’s bouquet featured the darker hues of pink, purple and red, and even black was elegantly incorporated into the arrangement.
The flower girl carried her “flowers” in a little black cauldron. But a closer look revealed tiny die-cut bats, not flowers, being dropped from the hands of the little girl. The ring bearer transported the rings in a black chest. (We’re surprised it wasn’t a tiny black coffin.)
Teresa’s beautiful dress was a custom-made soft grey color that complemented the darker colors used in the wedding. Peter’s shoes were made from fabric with the Haunted Mansion wallpaper print on it. Now that’s creatively spooky!
The tables at the reception were decorated with blacks and purples, bat and ghosts, ghouls and goblins. Oh, and one eerily special piece of signage.
It was a hauntingly beautiful wedding. And Teresa was the epitome of a beautiful bride–no Constance Hatchaways here!
The highlight of the event had to be the beautiful Bear Mountain Carousel, which provided just the right amount of whimsy to balance out the wedding’s haunted feel.
Congratulations to the bride and groom on a beautifully-executed, eerily spooky wedding!
