The Bride Erica Long, 30 and an art director The Groom Mike Pensack, 33 and an engineer The Date October 31 For their Halloween wedding, they used an expected color palette of orange, black, and white, but gave it a unique spin with vintage accents and a damask pattern.

The couple served their favorite drinks during cocktail hour: “The Bostonian” (vodka, cranberry juice and lime) and “The New Yorker” (a Long Island Iced Tea).
Erica's bridesmaids wore strapless black dresses and carried orange ranunculus bouquets wrapped in black.
Hand-rolled cigars and matches, wrapped with vintage skull and crossbone labels, were set out on the patio after dinner.
Silk garland and crystals hung from a specially created ceremony arch.
