NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. - Vancouver resident Caylee Auge (O-jhay) never thought she'd need to wear a life jacket underneath her wedding dress, but her mother's advice turned out to be a good idea.
The 33-year-old hair stylist strapped on a pair of water skis alongside her husband Cam Auge after the two got married on a dock and leaped into a bay in North Vancouver.
The new bride immediately made a splash — falling in the bay before a quick recovery thanks to her experience on the water, and that life jacket.
The couple, both 33, met at a swim club at the University of British Columbia in 2007.
But it was hardly love at first sight after Auge made fun of her future husband's Speedo.
The Auges and their two daughters are heading to France for a honeymoon and visit with family.
