The bride, Carrie Stewart Baker, made her way down the aisle toward the candle-lit altar in a powder-blue gown inspired by the fairytale cinders-to-satin princess. Her princely groom, Nicholas Nolan, looked charming in a white jacket adorned with a gold sash and epaulets as he took her hand to renew the vows they first made to each other 10 years ago. Rounding out the bridal party was her royal evilness, Jess Walton James, who served as the matron-of-honor, and Marvin Walker, who pulled off his duties as best man in gothic style.
A crush of guests that included monstrous ghouls, goblins, creatures of the night, historical figures and pop-culture-inspired characters huddled around the couple as the less-than-reverend Randy Carver officiated over the nuptials with the assistance of the macabre mansion's maid, Shelly Herman.
Although interrupted by an objection to the union by a pistol-packin' Annie Oakley, who bore a striking resemblance to the bride's mother, Sue England Stewart, the ceremony continued when the sharp-tongued sharpshooter was lured away by the promise of food and drink in the adjourning room.
