A Frighteningly Chic Nightmare Before Christmas from Offbeat Bride

The bride and groom embrace each other.

In April Heather Elizabeth Photography photographed the hell out of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hollywood wedding with a touch of Gothic appeal, mixed with a bit of Nightmare before Christmas of Lindsey and Justin. We’re talking: Disney, goth, lots of red, lots of roses, and some hot tattoos. Enjoy!
