LAKE LANIER, Ga. -

A metro Atlanta couple intended to take the plunge, but probably not like this.  Their whole wedding party-- dresses and all-- wound up in Lake Lanier when the dock underneath them dislodged-- and the video has gone viral on YouTube.

"Wedding Party Plunge Video" begins with and of Frank and Patricia Fearon's wedding ceremony, and from there things get a little soggy.  While their 29-person wedding party was taking photos on a dock (before the reception), it collapsed-- sending all of them including the bride and groom into Lake Lanier. No one was seriously hurt, according to their post.

"We just happened to catch a jerky couple seconds of this before the chaos of hoping no one was stuck under the dock, so we decided to share it with others," the YouTube post reads. 

According to the post, the wedding took place on May 18.  Apparently, it was deemed the "wedding wetting," and it didn't stop the party. 

"Everyone got dried off and the reception went on to be one of the best celebrations to date. Only minor injuries and a lot of wet iPhone 5's. A fractured humorous was the only thing not humorous about this."

The video was posted on YouTube on May 20, and it has been viewed more than 160,000 times.
