NEW YORK, Mich. (WZZM) - A West Michigan spent Valentine's Day watching themselves on national television.

Maegan and Eric Walber of Byron Center appeared on Katie Couric's talk show Thursday afternoon to share their wedding day disaster story. The program was prerecorded earlier this week in New York City.

The Walbers got married in June on Gun Lake. During a photo session, a dock collapsed underneath the wedding party, sending everyone into water in their dress clothes. Fortunately Maegan had a separate reception dress to change into.

Video of the disaster went viral online with over 2.3 million views on YouTube.

Maegan told Katie there was no warning before fate struck. "It happened so fast that before I knew it I'm coming out of the water going 'Oh my God!'"

The Walbers were competing with two other couples for a surprise trip to Miami. However, the audience chose another couple for the prize.

'Katie' airs weekdays at 3 p.m. on WZZM 13.
