Tornado Wedding Pictures: Kansas Newlyweds Caleb And Candra Pence Get Unforgettable Snapshots (VIDEO)

Every couple hopes for memorable wedding pictures. After all, when the ceremony and reception are over, the photographs are all that remain.

One Harper, Kansas couple, Caleb and Candra Pence, who tied the knot on May 19, can breathe easy about their photos -- their photographer captured some of the most awe-inspiring wedding pictures ever taken.

While the newlyweds kissed and documented the first moments of their new marriage, several tornados passed behind them about eight miles in the distance. The result is a series of stunning snapshots.

Candra Pence, a Nebraska native, had never seen a tornado before. But her new husband quickly calmed her fears. "I couldn't ask for better pictures," she told MSNBC.

Photographer Cate Eighmey said, "This is probably a first and a last, I don't plan on getting anything like this ever again." She added, "Aside from the obvious devastation there, it is also good to know there was joy that came out of the day."

Several homes were damaged by the tornadoes that swept through Kansas but no injuries were reported.
