Whereas some brides won't even let a glass of red wine near their wedding dress, one bride happily wore her gown just feet away from a literal explosion.
The bride and her groom had gotten married in 2015, so to make up for taking their wedding photos so late—like, now—they made them as awesome as possible. The couple had a team rig a cement bomb to blow up several feet behind them while they calmly posed in a wedding gown and a tuxedo, respectively. After the perfect photos were taken, a video reveals that in true action-film fashion, the couple ran away from the explosion and toward the camera (in slow motion, of course). Pretty badass.
A blog post detailing the photo shoot explains that capturing the perfect shot was not as easy as it looks. Apparently, it was windy outside on the day of the shoot, and a forest fire was reported on a nearby mountain earlier that day, so it took awhile to get things started. The bride was even seen wearing a coat in some behind-the-scenes photos—but we're sure the heat from the explosion warmed her right up. Mashable reports that cosplay company Cosnavi developed the idea for the innovative shoot, which took place on the Iwafune mountain, a former quarry. The outlet also says that the couple wore "cheap outfits" for the shoot, as the chance of them getting covered in dust and pieces of cement was high.
Huge congrats to this epic couple on their awesome photos. May their marriage always be just as exciting as these fire-y pics.
