The castle described as Count Dracula's in Bram Stoker's famous novel was already a popular stop for tourists.

Now, it's becoming the place to get married.

Capt. Arlyn Wood and Romanian prosecutor Simona Popa rented the castle for their Dracula-inspired nuptials.

The count was present in spirit, played by an actor and he assured guests he wouldn't steal the bride that night.

"I will not do that. If I would, she would disappear forever," the actor said.

After the ceremony, the groom explained why he and his bride chose the castle.

"For the history, for the culture, for the ties to American literature and European literature, and because we love the castle, we were here before," Wood said.

The castle rents for $5,500 to $25,000 per night, positively blood-sucking fees.
