It was an authentic ceremony with marigolds, larger-than-life sculptures and folkloric dance performances.
It all took place before a brightly colored ofrenda.
Forest Lawn's floral designers created the sculptures and arrangements.
It's inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. The holiday is marked by remembering and honoring the lives of deceased loved ones.
