A 29-member wedding party fell into Georgia's Lake Lanier earlier this month while posing for photos after the ceremony in a YouTube moment that's sure to go viral.

Frank and Tricia Fearon had just said "I do" and were posing for photos on a wooden dock in Flowery Branch, just south of Gainesville, Ga., with their massive wedding party when the structure collapsed, sending them all into the water. And the wedding videographer caught it all on tape.

"We heard a little 'pop' when the bolt came out and then it started falling," Chase Andrews, the bride's brother, told the Daily Mail. "There were just too many of us standing there. The immediate reaction was, 'Is everyone OK?' And then it was, 'This is pretty funny.'" 

One bridesmaid suffered a fractured humorous and a dislocated shoulder in the fall while the rest of the wedding party suffered only minor bruising.

"There was lots of reason for concern at first," Tricia Fearon told "Good Morning America." "Then as soon as we made sure everyone was okay, then it was like, okay, well, party!"

Ironically, Fearon had been more worried about whether the forecast that predicted rain that day would come true.

"It seemed magical that the rain held off," she said. "It didn’t matter because we all got dumped in the lake anyways."
