Most couples probably expect to be swept off their feet on their wedding day, but for one couple, it became literal, when a rogue wave hit them. In a now-viral post, their wedding photographer caught the moment the water came crashing into them.
Hawaii-based Sunny Golden was on hand to shoot the couple’s honeymoon photos. The plan had been to shoot in their wedding attire, with a beachfront location forming the backdrop. The choice stemmed from wanting a contrast to the mountain setting that featured in their actual ceremony.
However, they were taken by surprise after a wave consumed the couple, soaking their outfits. And in great form, the couple managed to laugh through the moment and even snuck in a kiss, while Golden continued to snap away. Bride Bekah Blakely-Savage revealed to Yahoo Lifestyle that she could laugh about the incident given that the pressure of her actual wedding day had already passed.
We were already married by that point, so I wasn’t really concerned about the dress. We hung it out to dry overnight, then tried to shake out as much sand and salt as possible before we put it back in the garment bag to fly home with it the next day.
A local dry cleaner, Fort Worth’s Comet Cleaners, even actually managed to salvage the dress.
