HALL COUNTY, GA (CNN) -- A Georgia couple made an unexpected splash at their wedding and it was all caught on tape. The bride, groom and their wedding party were posing for pictures on a dock when it flipped over.
Elizabeth Lineberry helped string chandeliers between the trees and turn their late grandmother's lake frontage into a fairytale venue.
When Elizabeth's sister Patricia Andrews exchanged vows with Frank Fearon, it was wedding magic. They were to depart on a sailboat. Lineberry says, "We don't even know, we've all been wracking our brains like whose idea was it and all we know is someone threw out hey, we should take our picture by the sailboat. And the sailboat was parked at the end there and it was gorgeous."
Their brother's company shot videotape and he said to keep shooting, just in case someone fell in. Lineberry says, "And after the entire 27 people were on the dock, we hear a creek and a groan. My husband was like 'this is gonna fall in the water."
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, and they declared it the best wedding ever. Lineberry says, "And they were just like, you know, we just take it all in stride and they did and they were still celebrating and we had a great night."
The bride and groom are on their honeymoon. And meanwhile, the whole wedding party is able to see the humor in what happened, even the bridesmaid who broke her humerus.
