Gladiator groomsmen crashing a wedding? Sure. But what if the uninvited guest turns out to be a venomous reptile?

Yup! This bride and groom's wedding photo-shoot was gate-crashed by a rattlesnake, who was hiding in the bushes, which led the couple to make an inadvertent trip to the hospital.

A Colorado couple was getting their pre-reception photo-shoot done, when a rattlesnake bit the groom in the ankle.

"All of a sudden, it was like someone had kicked me in the shin. Then I looked over and saw the snake sitting there, and it was rattling," Johnny Benson told the Denver Post.

The photographer, Maddie Mae, and the bride, Laura Benson, said they shouted out to a park ranger, who was at a distance and thus clearly unable to hear them. So, he yelled back, "Congratulations!"

The park ranger eventually reached the spot and took care of Johnny till the paramedics arrived, who put him in an ambulance and treated him in the emergency room.

Maddie being an adventure photographer kept snapping, and thus, these pictures tell the whole, epic story!

The doctors said Johnny was only bitten by the snake and no venom was injected into the body. Keeping in mind that the couple had a wedding reception to attend, the medical staff did not hold them for too long in the hospital.

The couple reached their reception venue only one hour late! "I've never seen such an emotional 'grand entrance' as all 184 guests cheered when Johnny and Laura walked in, and showered them in a sea of passionate hugs. I admire Laura & Johnny so much for staying calm, and holding each other's hand through the first great test of their brand new marriage," Maddie Mae wrote.
