The New Bedford Fairhaven Bridge served as the backdrop for some wedding photos this weekend.

Danielle DeBurgo and Tony Santos were married at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in New Bedford.  Danielle told us that the wedding party and the photographer was trying to get to Fairhaven High School to take some photos when the bridge opened for a few vessels.

Instead of waiting for the bridge traffic to resume, someone suggested that the photographer snap some photos with the bridge behind them.

The couple is originally from Dartmouth, but now lives in New Bedford.  Danielle works with children with autism at Behavioral Connections. Tony is the co-owner of CNS Home Solutions.
