A massive, sudden hail storm struck Calgary on the weekend. It sent people fleeing for cover.
That was also the wedding day for Helen Knight and Owen Chan. They seem like pretty awesome people, yes?
The result is this amazing shot, taken just before the storm drenched the entire wedding party.
Knight said that they "knew that a storm was abrewin' but did not expect it to hit so fast, nor so hard."
She described the scene as the skies opened up on them:
We had two goals: protect my hair, protect the cameras, everything else was thrown under the proverbial bus - especially the groomsmen (chivalry lives!) Within less than a minute, both Owen and I were soaked from the knees down ... In the 1 second between when my head left the umbrella's coverage and found the car, a bucket of rain found it's way to my forehead, so my bangs were plastered to my face. Both Owen and I had puddles in our shoes.
