DURANGO – A couple whose wedding had to be moved because of the fast-growing 416 Fire in southwestern Colorado now has a breathtaking photo to remember the day by.

Sara and Michael Kramer of Fort Collins were set to tie the knot at Cascade Village north of Durango on Saturday but as the fire grew significantly, they moved the ceremony to a relative’s property at the last minute.

Toward the end of the evening, at sunset, the couple went across the street to get a photo with the fire in the background. The result is a shot of Michael and Sara kissing in front of the ominous, orange plume of smoke from the fire.

"It's crazy how something so devastating and so scary and so dangerous can be so beautiful from a distance,” photographer Alexi Hubbell said.
