Ali Marintzer and Charlie Bator are high school sweethearts who surely would've had some cute pre-prom pics this year, indistinguishable from thousands of others. Luckily for them, Mother Nature intervened and provided them with a death-defying backdrop.

According to The Denver Channel, a tornado blew through their hometown of Wray—and was one of a few tornados in Colorado on Saturday. The storm was about three miles away from Marintzer's home, which—for the couple and Marintzer's mom—was a safe enough distance to head on outside and pose.

While they only took one picture together, the two had enough time to independently take some selfies before heading over to their prom, which was delayed for obvious reasons (the tornado).
