Fort Collins Groom Bit By Rattlesnake
When the bride said she didn't want any snakes at the wedding, I don't think this is what she meant, after the groom was bitten by a rattlesnake while taking photos. According to 9 News, John and Laura Benson were taking their wedding photos at Horsetooth Reservoir Monday evening (June 20, 2016), when they had an uninvited guest.
The wedding party was taking photos before the reception, and as they were wrapping things up the groom was bitten by a rattlesnake. The 44-year-old groom was helped by a Larimer County park ranger and taken to Poudre Valley Hospital while everyone at the reception was eagerly waiting for an update on his condition.
Benson was treated and was soon able to "laugh it off" and eventually made it to the reception to celebrate with his new bride and guests.
