Bran, Romania -- Vlad Tepes III is sometimes referred to as "Vlad the Impaler" and sometimes as "Dracula".

Just in time for Halloween, you can have Vlad the Impaler at your wedding or other festive event.

The so-called Castle Dracula in Romania was already a popular tourist destination...

Now it's becoming the place to get married, complete with Vlad Tepes lookalike.

American army captain Arlyn Wood married Romanian prosecutor Simona Popa (poe-pa) there --- renting the castle for their Dracula-inspired nuptials.

The owner of the castle, Dominic de Habsburg said, "The castle has been a place that brought me so much joy to me and a wedding is such a happy event." Then he charged them $14,000 for the castle rental.

Blood-sucking is apparently still in style there.
