Not exactly the picture of kindness.
A wedding photography company refused to refund a Colorado man after his fiancée died in a tragic car crash — then taunted him online, according to reports.
Citing his rare and heartbreaking circumstances, Justin Montney, of Colorado Springs, asked the firm Copper Stallion Media to return a $1,800 deposit after his 22-year-old bride-to-be Alexis Wyatt was killed on Feb. 4, according to KRDO-TV.
“They said they’d extend my service to my next wedding, which was a very insensitive thing to tell me,” he told the station. “They should have been able to [refund it] because they didn’t render any services.”
But the Texas-based photography company denied his request, citing a “legally binding contract” signed in November.
As word of the refusal spread, people left dozens of negative reviews on the company’s social media pages, along with the wedding site TheKnot.com, according to Fox 6 Now.
The photography firm soon fired back by creating a website, JustinMontneyWedding.com, in order to “build our case” against him.
It states that Montney brought the story to “the failing news station KRDO” for a segment in which he “admits the contract was non-refundable.”
“Life is a b-tch Justin,” the website reads, according to the station.
The message appeared to be removed from the site Wednesday.
“We replied and expressed our sympathy and explained to him that all of our wedding contracts are non-refundable,” Copper Stallion Media also said on its website.
“He kept emailing us trying to get a refund and we kept reiterating that the contract is non-refundable. We eventually stopped responding since the issue was moot.”
The company could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
