A couple in Philadelphia had what appeared to be a beautiful wedding reception, then the bride dislocated her knee during the ceremonial first dance.

Julie Benn and Paul Richter reportedly had to adjust their wedding date last year due to COVID so when they planned their big day they hoped that it would go off without any incidents.

Well, as the couple was dancing to start the night, Julie dislocated her knee and had to be assisted off of the dance floor.

Paramedics were called to the scene and they left with the bride. Luckily for the guests, the entertainment for the night never stopped.

The bride was taken to the hospital, treated, and returned to the reception a couple of hours later just as the night was about to end.
