So many brides hope that it won't rain on their big day and for this couple who got married in Bend, Oregon, that certainly would have been a well-founded fear.
It didn't rain on their parade, though. Well, not in the literal sense. Instead, they had to deal with another natural element, that is arguably much worse than a little bit of rain.
Just hours before they said their "I do's" a wildfire started burning just miles away from the ceremony site. If you don't live in an area where wildfires are a big thing, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of us, we know that a couple miles might as well be a couple of feet with the way these things move. Plus, the smoke and ash alone are enough to make your day pretty miserable.
This couple didn't let that stop the ceremony, though. "Right as the bride was about to walk down, a firetruck came in sirens blaring and told the bride we had to evacuate," the photographer wrote on his Facebook page. "In tears, her father announced to all the guests that we had to move the wedding. Incredibly, the fireman then told us we could have the ceremony and then had to leave."
In the end, they moved the ceremony to a park nearby and ended up with some of the most incredible wedding photos ever.
