Halloween weddings are a little controversial. But whether you like them or not you have to admire a couple that fully embraces not only Halloween but their own little oddities. That's why I was so excited to get these Halloween-Pirate Theme wedding photos from Molly Ann at Luminaire Images. Here's what Molly Ann had to say about the wedding:

Leanne and Tommy love Halloween, and pirates. So it only stood to reason that they should have a pirate wedding on Halloween! Many of their guests are also fans of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire, so almost everybody arrived in what appeared to be period-appropriate costumes. It was wild, and very creative! The bridesmaids all had parasols, and the groomsmen all carried daggers or swords. Just before the garter toss, Leanne also tucked a (prop) pistol under her dress for Tommy to find!
