Picture of the Day: Weddings and Wildfire
WEDDINGS AND WILDFIRE
Michael and April Wolber had picked the perfect place for their outdoor wedding, Rock Springs Ranch in Oregon. The couple had been planning for ages for their special day with friends and family. But before April could walk down the aisle a number of firetrucks pulled up with sirens blazing.
Not far away, the Two Bulls wildfire was growing and approaching. The firefighters alerted the wedding party that the ceremony had to be cancelled and all guests had to be moved to safety.
After some deliberation the firefighters changed their mind and let the ceremony continue provided they do it quickly and retreat back to their reception location Bend’s Drake Park. [source]
Deciding to make the best of an unexpected, unfortunate and dangerous situation, the couple took a series of portraits that they will never forget.
