Bride, Groom and 29-Person Wedding Party Plunge Into Lake

Share |

The bigger they are, the bigger they fall.

Georgia newlyweds Frank and Tricia Fearon were posing with their bridal party — 29 members strong, mind you — following their May 18 wedding, when the dock on which they were standing gave way, sending everyone, including the bride and groom, into Lake Lanier.

One bridesmaid broke her arm and dislocated her shoulder, but other than that everyone made it through unscathed. 

The couple was feeling good, given that the ceremony beat a strong forecast for rain, but despite the mishap, they were in good spirits.

"All of them laughed it off, went and got toweled off and danced the night away," said the groom.
