The wedding photoshoot gone wrong unfolded as the couple was standing on an oceanside rock near the Montage Hotel on Laguna Beach's Treasure Island Beach with who appears to be a photographer, according to KABC. Eyewitness Ionel Coroama captured the footage, showing the pair standing on the rock in their white gown and black tuxedo before a massive wave came barreling into shore and swept them into the rocky Pacific Ocean waters.

The groom, meanwhile, is seen already laying in the arms of another lifeguard on the beach nearby. The couple has not yet been identified, but KABC reports that neither was injured in the traumatic incident.
