Michael Wolber and April Hartley were all ready for their wedding.

The ceremony was scheduled for Saturday in Bend, Oregon – but before they could walk down the aisle, brush fires about six miles away churned into a giant wildfire.

Firefighters told the crowd to evacuate – so following the ceremony, the reception was moved to a park out of harm’s way.

While the guests, caterers and DJ moved to the new location, the couple snuck away with photographer Josh Newton to take some wedding photos with the wildfire as a backdrop. That wildfire has grown to 6,000 acres, leaving local residents worried - but giving one couple added reminder to appreciate the special moments.
