LAKE LANIER, Ga. (WSB) – A video of a Georgia couple’s wedding party crashing into a lake has gone viral.

A photographer was shooting video as the bride, groom and the wedding party made their way onto the dock to pose for pictures near a picturesque sailboat.

"And after the entire 27 people were on the dock, we hear a creek and a groan,” said Elizabeth Lineberry, the bride's sister. “My husband was like, 'This is gonna fall in the water.' And then we go cachoom."

Twenty-seven people in their wedding finest plunged into Lake Lanier after years of wave action loosened a rod that held the dock in place.

Once they knew everyone survived, the laughter took over.

Lineberry said everyone took it in stride, continued with the wedding festivities and "had a great night."

In fact, the bride and groom still set off on their honeymoon.

And the wedding party, including the bridesmaid who broke her humerus bone, were able to see the humor in the situation.
