Dia De Muertos / Day of the Dead Wedding Bride

My BFF from High School's daughter is getting married in a few months.  She and her mom both like Day of the Dead art, and they thought it would be fun to have the bride-to-be get her face painted as a skeleton and take some pictures with her wedding dress on. They asked me to paint her face, which I happily obliged.  We went to a local cemetary to take some shots.  We all had so much fun, there is now talk of taking the whole wedding party out the day after the wedding to paint and shoot again.  Here are some of my favorites from the day:

She got a lot of attention, especially when we stopped in Little 5 Points to snap a couple of these.  I love the idea of such a non-traditional take on a wedding, and it seems there are others across the interwebs who thought the same thing.  Hoping we can incorporate some of this theme into her reception.  :)
