Real Wedding: Michelle + Justin’s Haunted Night

A special wedding with a haunted past … Michelle + Justin tied the knot at The Forster Mansion, which is believed to be haunted. According to legend there is a ghost – George – who lives there, and has a tendency to smoke cigars in the house. Who doesn’t love a good ghost story! George is believed to live in the cemetery. So, of course there needed to be some portraits in the cemetery :) The wedding is a perfect blend of just a touch creepy, but super romantic. Thanks so much to the talented photography duo of Gabriel + Carlie at Gabriel Ryan for sending me this wedding.
