In this Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012 photo shot under iodine street lighting, a Romanian bride holds toy weapons at the Triumph Arch in Bucharest, Romania. The arch, a replica of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the French capital, is a rendezvous place for brides on the wedding night for the bride stealing ritual.
