Another wedding enhanced by wildfire activity

Earlier this summer we wrote about two wedding ceremonies that were planned months in advance, like most weddings, but the lucky couples did not anticipate the wildfires that would be occurring nearby. They both kept going in spite of the large smoke columns near Lake Isabella, California, and Bend, Oregon. The one in Oregon required the relocation of the reception.

On Saturday, September 13 a third wedding kept going in Corona, California and met the couple’s objectives, in spite of the noise created by large helicopters hovering and drafting water out of a nearby lake. The aircraft were working on the the Silverado Fire seven miles southwest of Corona. Check out the video below. The couple did not seem to be too bothered by the, uh, enhancement, of the ceremony. At least they have a story to tell.
