The weight of 22 people was too much for the dock and it collapsed.

CROSSLAKE, Minn. - A wedding party took a plunge in Minnesota lake when a dock gave way under their weight.

Dan and Jackie Anderson lined up on a dock with all their groomsmen and bridesmaids for a photo shoot about an hour before the wedding was due to begin. But the weight of the 22 people was too much for the dock and it collapsed beneath them into the lake.

A couple of bridesmaids were able to dash off the dock, but the rest ended up in waist- or chest-deep water.

The bride, groom and their entire wedding party were still drying off as the guests arrived for the wedding.

KMSP-TV (http://bit.ly/1hvG5VJ ) says despite the lake plunge, the ceremony started just 10 minutes late.
