This Couple's Wedding Photo Featured A Very Unexpected Twist

No Photoshop required 🌪

Don't get it twisted: This is not your average wedding photobomb.

On May 27, Kipp and Kelsey Loeslie were taking bridal party photos at Bluestem Center for the Arts, just south of Moorhead, Minnesota, when they noticed a funnel cloud several miles in the distance.

A funnel cloud photobombed a bride and groom before their ceremony near Moorhead, Minnesota.

Photographer Jeremy Manstrom of Manstrom Photography quickly documented the moment.

"We knew we had to stop quick and make something happen," Manstrom told The Huffington Post. "How could you let a moment like that -- on one of the biggest days of your life -- pass?"

After snapping the photo, the group headed indoors to take shelter. Fifteen minutes later, they heard warning sirens go off.

Several funnel clouds were spotted in the area that day; a National Weather Service meteorologist said one touched the ground, kicking up some dirt in open fields. No damage was reported.

Of course, we don't recommend going out of your way to take pictures outside when there's the potential for a tornado (here are some safety tips if you do spot one). But the Loeslies lucked out that day -- both with the photo and each other.
