CARLETON, Mich., Oct. 22 (UPI) -- A Michigan couple, using a Halloween theme for their wedding, said they dressed as zombies to exchange vows.
"It's was a once-in-a-lifetime thing," Todd Lambert said. "It's really unconventional. That was the whole point."
Lambert and Amanda Cusumano of Monroe County were married Saturday at the Carleton home of his parents by Eric Drummond, a pastor who dressed as Sherlock Holmes, the Monroe (Mich.) Evening News reported Monday.
Lambert, 40, said he and Cusumano, 30, had both been married before in traditional weddings, so they decided to do something more unusual for their nuptials.
Lambert donned a black suit with shredded cuffs, fake monster teeth, monster contact lenses and silver face paint. His bride wore a black velvet dress with zombie makeup.
The costumed crowd at the ceremony included a chef and the bride of Frankenstein. The father of the bride, Alan Gabriel, dressed as AC/DC guitarist Angus Young.
