Wildfire, mudslide, missile warning: Joc Pederson's memorable wedding week

It was, of course, a false alarm -- and quite the capper to an intensely memorable week.

"It was pretty crazy," he said. "It all worked out."

The week made Pederson all the more appreciative of the firefighters. They saved his wedding venue, he said, and so much more.

"These firefighters risked their lives," he said. "There was a national disaster. They were going 24-7 at it for quite a while, trying to contain the fires. They did a great job. They saved a lot of people, land, houses, animals. I tip my cap to them.

"We can just come out here and give some time and put a smile on their face. It means a lot to them. It's the least we could do."
