Just after they thought they avoided being soaked by an expected rainfall a bride and groom and all the wedding party wound up getting wet anyway when they fell into Lake Lanier after the dock they were taking photos on collapsed.
"It seemed magical that the rain held off," Patricia Fearon told Good Morning America. "It didn't matter because we all got dumped in the lake anyway."
Though one bridesmaid did break a few bones and other party members suffered minor bruising, the wedding was far from ruined.
"No one complained even though a lot of iPhones were damaged," said groom Frank Fearon. "All of them laughed it off, went and got toweled off and danced the night away."
