Brides should always expect the unexpected on their wedding day.

For a couple from Chicago who married during the Kincade Fire in California's wine country, that got a new meaning.

Curtis and Katie Ferland traveled from Windy City to celebrate their dream wedding in Sonoma County on Saturday, the Mercury News said. When they landed, they were confronted with the massive fire that devastated the northern end of the county.

The couple continued their wedding as planned at the Chateau St. Jean Winery in Kenwood, about 30 miles south of the place where the fire started, but not without a few hiccups, the newspaper reported.
