What better way to celebrate Pi Day (you know, like the number 3.14) than by getting married? Or at least that's how the pizzeria &pizza looks at it. 

The pizzeria started hosting Las Vegas-style weddings at some of their locations a few years ago. Now, it's become an annual event and couples apply to get married there.

If selected, &pizza provides the couples with an officiant, photographer, music, food, cake, flowers and a short reception all free of charge. 

Leslie Edsall and Steve Pont, who were one of the many couples to get married at &pizza's Washington, D.C. location Tuesday, said they applied on a whim. 

"Actually, Steve sent me the email advertisement for &pizza as a joke," Edsall explained. "I finally said to him about a week later 'Why don't we give it a shot and send our story in?'"

The couple said they had planned to do a simple court house wedding anyway. 

"When we sent our story in, we got accepted [and] then we started to think seriously about doing it," she said. "It seemed like a lot of fun." 

Pont added that they have always loved pizza so it all kind of just fell into place.
