Not quite the blessed day they expected.

Police in New Jersey managed to save the day for a couple of newlyweds who found themselves trapped on a flooded road. 

In video posted to Facebook by the Bogota Police Department, an officer is seen helping a bride — soaked wedding dress and all — up and out of the sunroof of a car that was inundated by water.

"Unfortunately due to the quickly rising flood waters, this bride, her new husband and wedding party friends, got a rough start on things," Bogota PD captioned the video.

The bride has a tough time, but after a concerted effort and a few tries she manages to make her way into the safety of the officer's vehicle. 

"The fortunate thing, is we were able to help them through their first rough patch," police joked. "Obviously their day has not gone as planned, so let’s congratulate them on their wedding and give them best wishes for a lifetime of love and adventure, starting now."

Per CBS New York, flooding Saturday swamped the Tri-State, including areas of New Jersey outside New York City, like Bogota. 

Rainfall rates of around 2 inches an hour were forecast as thunderstorm warnings expanded from New Jersey to the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, and parts of Brooklyn Sunday morning.
