Ore. Wildfire Provides Dramatic Backdrop for Wedding Photos

As the bride was walking down the aisle, the blaring engines arrived.


Blaring sirens on fire engines typically stop traffic -- not a wedding.

But, that's just what almost happened in Bend, Ore. this past weekend, WVPI reported.

Just as the bride was about to walk down the aisle, a fire truck came racing in with sirens blaring.

Firefighters were headed to a raging and spreading wildfire encroaching on the wedding party. They first stopped the 'I dos' but later had second thoughts and allowed the couple to exchange vows on the spot.

As wedding guests relocated to a nearby park, Michael Wolber and April Hartley stayed behind with their photographer for a few shots -- with the wildfire as the backdrop.

"We snuck away and got some of the most incredible wedding photos I've ever taken," Photographer Josh Newton told reporters.
