A couple from Chicago got married in Kenwood this past Saturday while the Kincade Fire raged behind them just miles away. The image of the happy couple wearing masks is haunting, and has now gone viral.
According to ABC7 News Chicago ...
The couple behind the masks are Katie and Curtis Ferland. The newlyweds, from Chicago, got married Saturday night at Chateau St. Jean vineyard in Sonoma County.
"The first thing we see on TV when we turn it on is flames everywhere," Curtis said.
Katie and Curtis were expecting they'd have to cancel. First, they had to move to a hotel after their Airbnb lost power. Then they had to move their rehearsal dinner. And then, on Saturday, most of their vendors and staff were forced to evacuate.
"The night before, basically I had to redesign the entire event," Sara Sugrue, an event planner with Sonoma's Orchard Avenue Events said. "We actually worked off a skeleton crew to make this happen."
