As the saying goes, horror is not a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. And this statement alone rings true to the nature of genuine horror fanatics who embrace the genre in every aspect of their lives for us where Halloween is not once, but 365 days a year. We implement the horror element into all holidays and celebrations of life. From Easter, birthdays, Christmas, and of course the holy matrimony between two who are making the leap to life commitment- weddings. Having an elaborately twisted horror themed wedding is of course, every ghoul’s dream come true. Black rose bouquets, gorgeous gothic wedding attire that would make Morticia Addams herself envious, and duh, Captain Spaulding performing the nuptials.
OK, maybe that last part is a stretch, HOWEVER, horror fans Kelli and Matt who attended this year’s Mad Monster Party in Rock Hill, South Carolina got Sid Haig himself to preside over the ceremony at the horror con by simply just asking him. Well tutti fuckin’ fruitti, what a swell guy, eh!
Of course, I’m not really that surprised as Haig has been known to be an absolute gem to his fans. Sid even went the extra mile and went into full character as the legendary Captain Spaulding from House of 1000 Corpses and Devil’s Rejects films. This whole thing just warms my cold, dark heart to see these two horror fans be able to commit their lives to each other in what I would presume, the coolest fuckin’ way possible.
Check out the entire ceremony below! Congrats Kelli and Matt!
