Earthquake bride

Now better known as the Earthquake Bride, Valeriya Shevchenko was snapped running from a courthouse in lower Manhattan, New York, on August 23, 2011. Clutching her cell phone and a bouquet, the bride-to-be was frantically searching for her fiance after a 5.9 magnitude earthquake rattled Virginia and surrounding regions. Thankfully, the happy couple were reunited and married the same day. (Timothy A. Clary/AFP/Getty Images)
