When your wedding reception is at the Madhouse on Madison, anything can happen. 

On Friday, two unsuspecting newlyweds were being snapped for some post-ceremony photos when photographer Ruthie Hauge captured an unexpected subject in the background: Hawks forward Patrick Sharp.

"We didn't know he was going to skate up and photobomb them," Hauge said. "They were thrilled. They are huge Blackhawks fans." 

The couple was holding their reception in a United Center suite, and the photobomb happened during the Hawks warmup before a game against the Carolina Hurricanes. 

The photo has since been picked up by the Eric and Kathy show, CBS Sports and USA Today. 

"[The bride] called me and thanked me, and said she was getting lots of attention over it," Hauge said. "It made her wedding day last longer than one day."
