A witness captured video of the scene near the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach when the couple, dressed in their wedding garb, were hit by a giant wave and swept into the water.

The video shows a team of lifeguards hurrying to rescue the drenched, but uninjured, couple.

The National Weather Service issued a warning this week of unusually high waves in the area and potential rip currents during the weekend.
