Taking a wedding crash to a whole new literal level

(CBS News) A couple's big day is supposed to be perfect, the best day of their lives, all that cliched crappola. And while it's hard for everything to go flawlessly, it would be nice to at least not come out wounded. The groom in this video didn't turn out so lucky. Watch the video above that takes the term "wedding crasher" to a whole new, and unfortunately, literal level. Ouch to say the least.

Apparently a wedding videographer was trying to get all fancy with some flying video camera contraption (technically called a DJI Phantom quadcopter) and accidentally flew said machine into the groom's head during a photo shoot (technically this shoot happened two days before the actual wedding, but it's more fun to think of it happening on the actual day -- isn't it?). The groom reportedly ended up with a cut on his cheek and the side of his head, and though the photographer says he "felt horrible," "the bride and groom were able to laugh about it after and we continued the shoot." That's what I call rolling with the punches!

And the photographer has a great attitude about it as well (he's the one who posted the video for all to see). Rather than trying to hide his faux pas, he even posted an extended version on his website where he gives a lengthy explanation about the whole debacle. Who knew you could gain more exposure by messing up? Just goes to show you that everyone makes mistakes. Check out the longer version below.
