Talking about taking these pictures Randalf was quoted in a report, "We pushed through, thinking it might not escalate, but made sure to monitor what was happening via social media." He mentioned that not everything went as smooth as the reception had to be halted when the ash began to fall and mud started settling at the venue. The couple luckily had taken their vows and even performed their dance before the volcanic activity had an effect in the region. It was indeed a memorable day for the couple and the pictures would always remain a proof to that.
