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 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.

“At first I said no, I am not getting married in a haunted house,” she said. “But we were out shopping and I saw this dress and everything started flowing.”
