LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — One couple got a rather rattling surprise on their wedding day.

On Monday, Johnny and Laura Benson’s wedding party drove up to Horsetooth Reservoir from Bellvue for a photo session.

Johnny, 44, stayed behind with his bride Laura to take sunset photos while the rest of the wedding party headed to the reception.

It was during this time a rattlesnake bit the groom, who looked like he remained in good spirits.

A Larimer County park ranger came to the couple’s aid and Johnny was transported to Poudre Valley Hospital for treatment.

Once Johnny was released, the couple was able to return to the reception to celebrate their marriage – and Johnny’s swift recovery.
