New Jersey couple makes the most of unexpected wedding evacuation

MANAHAWKIN, N.J. (WPVI) -- A routine fire call forced an entire wedding party out of an Ocean County venue, but the guests and the bride made the best of it and the pictures are going wildly viral.

Allison and Kevin Duffy tied the knot Friday night at the Bonnet Island Estate in Manahawkin, New Jersey.

However, the fire department also showed up to the wedding after a report of an "odor of something burning" and forced all 250 guests to evacuate.

While the wedding guests were kept outside for about a half hour, the bride and groom decided to make the most of a photo opportunity and posed with the fire trucks and equipment.

At one point, Allison even throws on a Stafford Fire Department helmet and gets hoisted in the air by the first responders who called this an "interesting operation."
