Dia De Los Muertos themed wedding: Angiela + Eddy

July 13, 2009

A few months ago we posted an amazing Dia De Los Muertos themed invite suite from Hammerpress, remember? Lucky for us the bride, Angiela, got wind of the situation and sent over photos of the actual wedding.


She and Eddy paid for the entire celebration themselves, which meant that budget was an important factor in their planning. And as Angiela put it, “our wedding was made possible, special and completely unique by the fact that our entire community of creative friends and neighbors pitched in with gusto.”

Which is just the best way, isn’t it?

They live in Kansas City’s historic westside and used the date they selected as inspiration for their entire celebration. Dia De Los Muertos is a holiday in their neighborhood and because they’d chosen this day for their wedding, they took inspiration from traditional celebratory decor for their reception. They were married in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and had the reception at home, in a hidden courtyard that had already been witness to many loving memories over the years.
