In this photo shot under iodine street lighting, a Romanian bride poses for pictures at the Arch of Triumph in Bucharest, Romania, after being "kidnapped" on her wedding night Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012.

And the tradition of snatching the bride from under the nose of groom and guests with the wedding party in full swing is getting bigger, brasher and an increasingly common sight in the Romanian capital, the Balkans' undisputed party town.
