Hilarious Moment A Bride And Groom Took A Dip Recreating A Dance Move
| Last updated
This is the hilarious moment a bride and groom accidentally took a dip on their big day after plunging into a river in full wedding attire.
Lora Wendorf and her new husband Jordan Devries, both 35, were posing for wedding pictures on a dock when they decided to attempt a bold dance move.
The couple tried to recreate a romantic stance Lora had seen on Dancing With The Stars, but things went very wrong and they tumbled into the river together.
Lora, a social worker, said: "I was just so in the moment and so happy. I wanted to do a romantic dance move that you see on Dancing With The Stars. But Jordan is not a dancer and neither am I.
"I didn't give him much notice. I did the backwards dip and he wasn't quite ready and I fell into the river. My head was under water and I didn't even know what happened."
When Lora emerged, she jokingly blamed the fail on her new husband who had fallen into the water with her.
She added: "I was in pure shock, it didn't sink in for a few moments. Jordan and I are pretty easy-going people and I said to him, 'you dropped me'."
Lora wrung out her soaked wedding dress and sneaked into the bathroom, hiding from her guests.
She admitted she almost cried looking at her waterlogged dress and ruined hair and makeup.
Lora, from Vancouver Island, Canada, added: "I was on the verge of bawling. But at that moment my brother-in-law came in and he just started laughing. It made me laugh too."
Lora downed a rum shot, changed her outfit and enjoyed the rest of her wedding, which happened back in August 2017.
She added: "I took down my hair, got all the bobby pins out, brushed it and wiped off my eye makeup. I took a shot of rum and then a torrential downpour started outside.
"I just looked at my husband and said, 'well, I guess we'll go meet the guests soaking wet'. People did ask why we were all wet but I laughed it off and we had a good time."
Lora and Jordan, a scaffolder, even used the pictures of the ultimate wedding fail in their thank you cards to guests.
She concluded: "You got to own what happens to you. Life is never going to be how you want it to be. Obviously, I wanted the beautiful picture with the sunset but instead we got a hilarious story."
Well, congratulations guys.
