WATCH: Newlywed Couple Barely Avoids Getting Clonked by Giant Falling Tree Branch

A Wisconsin couple had an incredibly frightening experience on their wedding day when a huge branch fell off a tree and almost crushed them.

Several days ago, newlyweds Cheyenne and Lucas Kopeschka sat at a picnic table as they taped an interview they were going to include in their wedding video. During the conversation, they heard a loud crack and scrambled to get out of the way — just milliseconds before a giant tree limb came crashing down.

“You always see stuff like this on Youtube videos but never in real life and when we saw it, we were all just shaken up,” wedding photographer Freddy Hernandez said to CBS 58.

The branch broke part of the table, but Mrs. Kopeschka only sustained some minor scrapes from the incident. The couple decided to keep going with the interview on the surviving part of the table, and Hernandez quoted the bride, saying, “Our love is forever going to be stronger than that tree.”
