Wildfire sparks amazing wedding photo

BEND, Ore. – A wildfire that disrupted an Oregon couple’s wedding also gave them the photograph of a lifetime.

Michael Wolber said a fire truck rolled up at Rock Spring Ranch near Bend with sirens blaring and the wedding party was told to evacuate Saturday.

The Oregonian reported (http://bit.ly/1uQEhJp ) the minister conducted an abbreviated ceremony. Everyone cheered and began to evacuate to downtown Bend’s Drake Park for the reception.
