For the third consecutive year, &pizza is hosting free weddings for local coups at its restaurants in Washington, D.C., New York City, Philadelphia, and Baltimore for National Pi Day. Through partnerships with Lyft, Milk Bar, UrbanStems, and Framebridge, couples and their guests will be given the wedding of a lifetime at absolutely no cost.

The chain is pulling out all the stops—flowers, photography, food and beverage, a ceremony, and more day-of surprises. The shops are converted into chapels for the day, while guests can walk in and join the celebration as well. The brand expects to host at least a dozen weddings this year.
