Loads of things can go wrong on your wedding day. Your partner could run away from the alter a la The Graduate. The catering company could serve poisoned food to your guests. Or, if you're a character on Game of Thrones, your wedding could be little more than an elaborate ploy to kill someone. But most people aren't prepared to be bitten by a rattlesnake on their wedding day, which is what happened to a Fort Collins, Colorado groom.
Johnny Benson, after being married to Laura Benson for mere minutes, was bit in the calf by a young rattlesnake as the couple were having their photos taken. "All of a sudden it was like someone kicked me in the shin," Johnny told the Denver Post. "Then I looked over and saw the snake sitting there, and it was rattling."
