Groom Dan Anderson on wedding dock collapse: "Only thing you can do is have a beer and laugh" [VIDEO]

This wedding's destination was the water...
An hour before his Crosslake wedding last Saturday, Dan Anderson and his wedding party posed for photos on a dock.

You can probably imagine where this is going!

Anderson characterizes the ensuing situation as one where "the only thing you can do is have a beer and laugh."

It was easier to laugh thanks to how helpful folks at Crosslake's Manhattan Beach Lodge were. Anderson says they loaded all of the wedding party's wet clothes into driers at two different locations, one more than a mile away, and got them back into wearable condition in time for the wedding.

Conveniently, even the canvas Chuck Taylor shoes the groom's party was wearing could be tossed in a drier.

"If you didn't know, you would've never known," Anderson tells us. "Everything looked normal."

Well, normal during the actual wedding, at least. Click to page to for a couple surreal photos taken moments after the dock collapse.
