Evacuate or tie the knot? That was the dilemma facing one Northern California couple this weekend, as the massive and destructive Klamathon Fire raged not far from a wedding venue built specifically for their nuptials. The end result was a ceremony that will likely prove unforgettable to all in attendance. As documented by photographers Dee and Kristina Robinson of Dee and Kris Photography, Ellie and Taylor Denney wed in a hurried outdoor ceremony in Hornbrook. Meanwhile, an unpredictable blaze raged in the not-so-distant background. "The vendors rushed to load whatever they could as the couple said ‘I DO’, they kissed and everyone RAN," Dee and Kris wrote. In a Facebook comment, Dee and Kris called the affair "terrifying," but they also noted that fire crews were aware of the situation and gave the go-ahead.
