Winning couple to ‘tie the noose’ during Halloween Horror Nights

Life-long fans of Halloween, April Richardson and Adam Cochran (pictured below) are the winners of Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights Wedding contest. They will “tie the noose” on Friday, Oct. 15 at Halloween Horror Nights XX on the steps of a haunted house, surrounded by their family, friends and some nightmarishly ghoulish guests.

April and Adam met six years ago in college and were engaged in May 2010 following his proposal in the arboretum at their alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Over the years, Adam, a pharmacist, and April, a graphic designer and aspiring writer, have celebrated Halloween much like many celebrate other major holidays – by sending out dramatic Halloween-themed photo cards of themselves, and holding annual Halloween parties and scavenger hunts.

The self-described “quirky” and “creative” couple says that getting married at Halloween Horror Nights is a dream come true, as the annual event is their “holy grail of Halloween celebrations.” And now, they are the first to experience Universal Orlando’s highly-anticipated Halloween Horror Nights wedding packages – perfect for couples who wish to promise “til un-death do us part.”

Adam was born in Virginia and April was born in Connecticut. Both grew up in North Carolina and they currently reside in Vermont. “Getting married at Halloween Horror Nights would join our two loves in the best possible way,” said April.
