Some couples have sparks, but this one has a wildfire.

Sara Kramer and her new husband took the wedding photos in front of the 416 wildfire in Colorado and posted them on Instagram.

Kramer said she did it to show her appreciation of the crews battling the blazes and keeping the area safe.

The fire began Tuesday about 2 miles west of Silverthorne, a town with about 4,700 residents and about 65 miles west of Denver. It has burned 100 acres in the Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forest, officials said.

The photographer said the couple had to move the spot of the wedding because of the fire and decided to use the fire for a backdrop.

The 416 fire -- the largest wildfire in the state -- has burned more than 23,000 acres in La Plata County near the state's border with New Mexico, county spokeswoman Megan Graham said.

The couple said they would like to encourage people to donate to the community foundation serving southwest Colorado.

The fire has only been 15% contained since it was first reported on June 1. More than 900 people are fighting the blaze, officials said.

No one has been hurt and no structures have burned down.
