‘Vampires’ wed at Halloween-theme wedding
A Halloween-themed wedding in Ohio featured the happy couple in vampire garb, a pirate best man and a minister dressed as a psychotic killer.
Jack Holsinger, 61, who dressed as Dracula for his nuptials, was driven to the alter at the Rockin'-R-Ranch in Columbia Station in a hearse and carried to his spot in a coffin, where he was met by his vampire bride Connie Spitznagel, 44, The Chronicle-Telegram of Elyria, Ohio, reported Monday.
Holsinger's son, also named Jack, served as best man while dressed as Jack Sparrow from the
Pirates of the Caribbean series.
Minister Greg Kopp married the couple in his guise as Jason, the killer from the
Friday the 13th horror film franchise.
Holsinger said the theme was his bride's idea.
This is her first wedding, he said.
She had a common-law marriage the first time around, so she never really got a wedding. It's what she wanted and it's about her. It's her time. Whatever she wanted.
