With Halloween just a couple days away, we wrap up our Halloween wedding series with a look at five haunted locations for a wedding.
The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado (aka The Shining hotel). is one place recommended by theknot.com. They say the ghost of F.O. Stanley, the hotel’s original owner, is said to play piano in the music room while his wife, Flora, frequents the billiard room and lobby. They warn guests about room 408, where guests have claimed to hear children outside their door
— but none in sight.
The 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, sits atop Crescent Mountain. According to the hotel’s website, “Every night of the year, dozens of different people wind their way down the hallways and open, serpentine staircases of the five-story 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa, “America’s Most Haunted Hotel”. Final destination: the hotel’s “morgue.” They just know they are strolling amidst what some would say are hundreds of spirits who still frequent this Historic Hotel of America located here atop Crescent Mountain.”
The Queen Mary, docked in Long Beach, California, is said to be haunted by a sailor who died in the ship’s engine room, a “lady in white,” and children who drowned in the ship’s pool. Other previous crew and passengers are said to be walking the decks of the ship. Various wedding packages are available.
Don Vicente de Ybor Inn in Tampa, Florida was called “Hotel Hell” by hosts of the show The Dead Files on the Travel Channel. The show’s medium reported she detected the presence of a mafia war, and felt she was pushed by a spirit. The haunted location is also a beautiful location for a wedding, and it’s not far from the beach.
Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter, New Orleans, is said to be haunted by former guests and employees, including a guest who died there of natural causes and a child who plays hide-and-seek with another young spirit.
These are all beautiful locations for any wedding. Whether you want some “uninvited guests,” spooky spirits or just a gorgeous location for a wedding, each of these locations would be a great choice.
