MANAHAWKIN, N.J. – A bride turned an unfortunate situation into an incredible wedding day memory.

Alliison Russoniello married her boyfriend of six years, Kevin Duffy, last weekend in New Jersey. The day had gone perfectly until the wedding reception, when a smokey smell forced the bridal party, guests and staff outside until firefighters could investigate.

Russoniello refused to let the hiccup ruin her big day.

“We figured we would make lemonade out of lemons when we can. What am I going to do? Sit in a corner and cry? I’ll ruin my makeup,” Russoniello told Inside Edition.

Instead, she asked her photographer to capture some photos. They sneaked onto the fire engine and asked firefighters to pose for some incredible pictures.

Luckily, firefighters quickly determined there was no danger, and everyone went back inside to enjoy the party.
