This Dia De Los Muertos Wedding Celebrates Mexican Heritage

October 31, 2018 | Junebug Weddings

We’ve got a special Halloween treat: a Dia De Los Muertos wedding that was as sweet as it was beautiful! As Tirza and Chris got closer to their wedding day, they changed their plans completely and decided on an elopement that paid homage to their loved ones based on the Mexican tradition of Dia De Los Muertos.

Spell Bundle did an incredible job helping bring their vision to life with vibrant florals on their sweetheart table Offrenda, which featured framed photos, traditional sweets, and a desert-inspired wedding cake made by Sweet And Lovely Co.

From full skeleton makeup to a boho-inspired wedding dress and flower crown (also created by Sweet And Lovely Co) to traditional mariachi attire, this couple went all-out for the theme, and we’re in love with all of it! Every moment was a true celebration of love and of life, and Chuy Photo captured every detail brilliantly!

The Couple:

Tirza and Chris

The Wedding:

Jurupa Valley, California

Their Photographer’s Thoughts

The couple had extraordinary plans to elope at an epic location. They had all the plans set with their stylist and florists until the month of October when they reached out to all of us to change up their entire plan. Unfortunately, the majority of their family has passed and, coming from a Mexican heritage background, Day of the Dead is an important day for them to celebrate their relatives that have passed. They had picture frames of their loved ones as if they were there on what is called an Ofrenda. The groom also plays in a Mariachi band with some of his relatives and closest friends. Their entire energy was so impactful from the start!

Photography – Chuy Photo
Bridal Flower Crown, Bouquet, and Cake – Sweet And Lovely Co

    • Hi Samantha and Jesus! We don’t know the exact location, but if you reach out to the photographer they’d likely be able to tell you (and would probably love to take your photos for you too). Congratulations!
