‘I just knew something wasn’t right because of the smell and smoke.’ Wedding photographer McKaila Hanna said: ‘We started to get a lot of smoke, it was almost like an exhaust smoke, kind of halfway until we got there. It was so smoky by the time we got there. It was pretty rough.’
Hanna encouraged the party to pose for wedding photos with the flaming bus in the background and when the firemen arrived, they happily posed for photos too. Hanna said her goal is to document a wedding ‘from beginning to end’ so she didn’t let a small fire rain on her parade instead she seized the moment to capture memories that will endure.
The bus company involved said the fire was caused by a leak in the brake chamber, and a new bus was sent to the church to whisk the couple to their reception.
