Bridal shower: Wedding party takes the plunge

A husband, bride and bridal party was left in the deep end when the pier they were standing on while posing for wedding pictures collapsed - pitching them in to a lake.

When Eric and Maegan Walber planned their big day they never expected that Maegan would be better with a swimming cap than a veil.

After their wedding meal the couple went outside with their friends for some wedding pictures at the Bay Pointe Inn on Gun Lake in Shelbyville, Michigan.

After the bridesmaids, grooms men, bride and groom got settled on the pier ready for the pictures that would last a lifetime, it was not long before things went wrong:

'We were out there for probably 30 seconds, standing on the dock, and it started to lean and tilt,' said Mr Walber.

'We went right under,' he added.

The scene was captured by Anne Oppenhuizen of Inspiration Video.

Luckily the new Mrs Walber's evening wasn't completely ruined as she was able to change in to the dress that she had worn to the rehearsal dinner the night before.

'I came up laughing,' she told 24 Hour News 8.

'It makes for a good story,' she said. 'We'll be telling our grandkids.'
