In Harper, Missouri, tornadoes are a way of life. The city is located within Tornado Alley, so the twister is not a foreign phenomenon. However, most people don’t invite tornadoes to their wedding. Caleb and Candra Pence are not most people. As you can clearly see, a massive twister is a special guest at their outdoor wedding. Caleb and Candra Pence were photobombed by an EF-3 tornado in a series of dramatic photos captured by wedding photographer Cate Eighmey.
“I had my mind on marrying my now wife,” said Caleb Pence. ”I don’t know how we did it. It boggles my mind how perfect it worked.”
The incredible thing is, even with this tornado in the background, the 250-person wedding was not altered. The 20-minute service even had a song solo, and bride and groom rode a horse (they met at a rodeo) following the ceremony to a metal barn-like structure that had been turned into the reception area. The storms finally arrived to where they were, but the party went on past midnight anyway. Good thing, because they spent their Wyoming honeymoon fielding calls from the media about their unusual, uninvited wedding guest.
