The Marriage of Wedding Photography and Photojournalism Getting Totally Out of Hand

While I’m gathering my thoughts on weightier events from the last few days, I couldn’t resist a few takes on this wire photo that turned up in Time’s “Pictures of the Week” gallery Friday. (See caption below.)

> April and Michael’s 15 minutes of flame.

> Honey, did you remember to pay the private fire department bill?

> My love is on fire.  (I like this one too.)

> Till drought do us part.

>>I thought you were in charge of the flowers.

>> America: open for business throughout the apocalypse.

Because of the approaching fire, the minister conducted an abbreviated ceremony and the wedding party was evacuated to a downtown Bend park for the reception.)
