Firefighter Ditches His Wedding to Battle a Blaze

September 29, 2018



One couple's wedding was heating up and not in ways you might think. 

The groom was an on-call firefighter and when duty calls, you go right?... or do you listen to your wife you've been married to less than 24 hours??

The bride to be said, “At first I looked at him like, ‘No, don’t even think about it,’ and he wasn’t going to think about it,” Krista, 32, tells PEOPLE. “But then, we were taking a couple more pictures and I could actually hear how bad the fire was. It was the city next to us that needed help, so it was an ‘all-call,’ where they call for extra men.”

With the fire worsening, Krista turned to Jeremy, 39, to let him know he could leave with her blessing.

“I just kind of was like, ‘Oh, gosh.’ So I just looked over at him and I said, ‘Just go ahead and go. Just go,’ ” Krista recalls. “I could just see the look in his eyes when I turned to him, he was kind of torn, thinking of his family, and of the people in need of help.”

“I wouldn’t have second guessed it, I wouldn’t change anything,” she says. “Jeremy really is amazing, and that’s why I married him. He would do anything for anyone, he truly would.” 

Okay we're not crying, your crying!!!! Congrats to the happy couple! 

Unfortunately, the family that had endured the fire lost a lot of their belongings and now have a GoFundMe page set up.
