"I've dreamed about a day like this!," said the couple's photographer Colleen Niska on her Facebook page. "Could NOT wait to post these! Pretty sure this will only happen once in my lifetime!"

Heavy downpours, extremely large hail and multiple tornadoes were reported across parts of the Prairies on Saturday.

Bearing the brunt of the storm was south central and south eastern Saskatchewan, where at least three communities reported tornado touch downs.

Niska was snapping photos of the couple on a rural rood near Saskatoon when suddenly she realized there was a twister in the background.

Since being posted on Saturday, the collection of photos have been shared over 13,000 times on Facebook.

"As for the wedding, the windy weather blew down a tent at the reception, but the rest of the outdoor party was said to be a success," reported CTV News.
