New York church has refused a couple’s  wish to have a wedding with a Halloween theme.

The church, in Sleepy Hallow, NY, has been made famous by Washington Irving’s short story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Lisa Panensky and Jim Nieves signed a contract 13 months ago to get married on Halloween at the Old Dutch Church, but church officials balked at the couple’s plans to wear costumes and include theme music from “The Addams Family” and “The Munsters.”

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 said they may get married at home. The church has offered to refund their deposit.
