Bend - Michael and April Wolber had picked out the perfect spot for their wedding at Rock Springs Ranch in Oregon and couldn't wait to celebrate with family and friends. Only problem was, a wildfire had different ideas.
The couple had picked out the perfect location for their wedding at Rock Springs Ranch in Oregon. However, as the ceremony was underway, the sound of sirens filled the air as fire trucks started arriving. Apparently, the Two Bulls wildfire was heading straight for them at a terrifying speed.
"All of my bridesmaids did a really good job keeping me calm and didn't even tell me about the fire until about 30 minutes before the wedding," April Wolber said.
At first, the wedding was to be canceled, but then after a plea to the firefighters to let them continue with a very fast ceremony, they were able to continue.
"We got to hear the ranch manager Kelly come down, waving her arms saying, 'We can do it. We can do the ceremony!'" Michael Wolber said.
With firefighters joining the audience, Michael and April speedily went through their vows.
As you can see from the video above, their wedding ended up like an award-winning Hollywood movie and a story they can tell for the rest of their lives.
"We wouldn't change a single thing about the way yesterday went off," Michael Wolber said.
The photographic results of the quick ceremony are quite simply astounding. The photos can be viewed in their entire splendor on the Buzzfeed website.
On a more serious note, the Two Bulls wildfire now apparently covers 6,800 acres and evacuees near Bend are waiting for word on when they can return home.
