Sleepy Hollow church: No Halloween-themed weddings
SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. (AP) – A church made famous by Washington Irving’s short story, "The Legend of
Sleepy Hollow," has rejected a couple’s request to hold a Halloween-themed wedding.
Lisa Panensky and Jim Nieves signed a contract 13 months ago to get married on Halloween at the Old Dutch
Church in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.
Church officials balked at the couple’s plans to wear costumes and include theme music from "The
Addams Family" and "The Munsters."
The Rev. Jeff Gargano said he only recently learned of the Halloween theme. He offered instead to marry
them in the cemetery of the 17th-century church, but the couple declined.
The church has offered to refund their deposit. The couple say they may get married at home.
