Lightning strikes in couple's wedding photo

This shot is too beautiful to be ominous.

Some might call it ominous, but when lightning struck during one couple’s wedding shoot, the photo turned out to be pretty amazing.

Evan and Helen Gremillion decided to tie the knot at Zenith Vineyards in Salem, Ore. To capture their lovely outdoor ceremony, they hired Julia Green, a photographer and graduate student at Oregon State University. It was a beautiful day when Green showed up, but shortly after, a storm began brewing.

“I felt like it was my duty as a photographer to get the best photo I could for them,” wedding photographer Julia Green told KGW Portland News. “I said a little prayer, and I clicked five times and it happened.”

Green captured an incredible shot of the Gremillions with a lightning bolt that seemed to materialize from their wedding rings. The groom told the news outlet:

“God was basically saying, ‘Congratulations, we’re going to make a lightning bolt in your honor.’”

Guests agreed. They decided to interpret the beautiful shot as a positive omen.

“They had smiles on their faces and were really excited about it,” Green told the Portland Tribune.

Considering that lightning hits the earth about 44 times a second and about 10,000 couples tie the knot. Chances are it happens quite a bit.
