Is this the worst wedding photo shoot of all time? If not, we think it’s at least a tie. It happened last Saturday in Crosslake, Minnesota. Watch the above video, and you be the judge.
What if this happened at your wedding?
The photo shoot took place before the marriage of Dan and Jackie Anderson, when they thought it would be a good idea to get everyone together — all 22 members of the wedding party — and line up for a memorable group photo against a scenic backdrop of a pier jutting out into the lake.
There were the bride and groom, along with each and every one their bridesmaids and groomsmen, all on the same rickety old wooden plank.
You can probably guess what happened next, but whether you can or not, watch the above video. Then ask yourself, if this happened to you, could you handle it as well as Dan and Jackie did?
“Coolest couple I have ever met,” said Megan Fritze, the videographer who captured the disaster on tape. “Jackie looked up, all smiles, from the water and asked if I got it on video. Great day to be around really amazing people.”
The soon-to-be newlyweds didn’t let the waterlogged mishap dampen their spirits. The wedding went on as planned, with a brief, 10-minute delay to let dresses and rented tuxes dry out — and the Dan and Jackie got hitched.
But you would think they might have been aware of the risks. This exact same disaster happened before — and the evidence has been on YouTube since 2012.
Watch the below video, from the June 23, 2102 wedding of Eric and Maegan Walber at Gun Lake in Shelbyville, Michigan.
Fortunately, this one featured another good-natured couple who didn’t let the world’s worst wedding photo upset their big day. “Everyone was laughing,” Eric Walber said. “It was one of those things that it just happens and you roll with it.”
