FORT BEND COUNTY, TX - On a day where “I do” is front and center, this is a definite don't. A couple near Houston that vowed "for better or worse" had to deal with bad news the moment they saw the pictures taken in their wedding photo booth.
Printed at the bottom -- a racial slur.
“Anybody would find this caption offensive,” family attorney Cathy Hale commented. “I'm offended by it. I don't want to say it."
Yeah, we're talking the N-word, and it wasn't nuptials!
According to Hale, the pictures were supposed to have the wedding date and the names of the happily married couple. Instead, several wedding guests got hateful words.
And this wedding nightmare doesn't end there. The bride and groom are suing the owner of Premier Photography for "negligence" and "mental anguish.”
On top of the racist captions, they say they never received any of their 2012 wedding photos.
In civil court filings, Premier Photography denies the allegations and claim the defendants have no evidence linking them to the offensive caption and no proof of mental anguish.
Mediation is scheduled this week. If the parties have irreconcilable differences, the case is set for trial in July.
“Every time they think about their anniversary, they think about this,” Hale said.
Geesh, talk about Wedding Bell Blues.
