FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — A Fort Collins groom was bitten by a rattlesnake while taking wedding photos at scenic Horsetooth Reservoir.

The Coloradoan reports Johnny Benson got immediate help from a Larimer County Park ranger and then was treated at Poudre Valley hospital after being bitten Monday evening and was able to attend his reception with his new wife Laura. His guests, though, were rattled.
