SHELBYVILLE, Mich. (AP) -- A West Michigan wedding party ended up soaked after the dock on which they were standing gave way during a photo shoot.

No one was injured in Saturday's plunge during the reception at Bay Pointe Inn on Gun Lake in Shelbyville, about 25 miles south of Grand Rapids.

Video shows Eric and Maegan Walber of Byron Center falling along with their wedding party.

They talked about it with the station en route to their honeymoon on Mackinac Island. The groom says they were on the dock about 30 seconds when it started to lean and tilt.

The bride says the fall it was scary for a moment because her wedding dress made it difficult to get her footing, but she says she "came up laughing."
