    Wedding company denies refund after man's fiancee (Alexis Wyatt, 22) dies ? then taunts him online

    Not exactly the picture of kindness.

    A wedding photography company refused to refund a Colorado man after his fiancee 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.

    Ugh. I certainly feel sorry for the groom. This situation sucks. The company would have been better off to refund the money, or at least a portion of it. That said the "smear campaign" was a bad move. And the retaliatory website against the groom? Business suicide. I understand money is tight and business is business, so there won't be a refund. But attacking a customer that way. No. You're off my list.

    I honestly dont get it. They have not done a shred of work yet except maybe make a copy of the contract. $100.00 should cover their costs. It's not last minute. Maybe they have or will have another client. I don't think anybody should use them ever. That would be a devil taking pictures. Evil and heartless.

    I can kind of understand it. The bottom has fallen out of the world. They have bills to pay, probably staff to pay. And they may not be getting any bookings. In my own family people have canceled or postponed 3 weddings, 4 graduation parties and have had two no funeral burials. So the business is probably hurting, and everybody has a sad story, a death, breakups, etc. And they had a no refund contract, because who expected to have to cancel. Now from a PR stand point ... give the man his money. Minus a deposit if you must. But when this is the 4th, 5th or gok of how many cancellations? I can see being a hard ass. But it's not going to help your business in the long run.

    Totally agree with Puzzld and Terps. I wouldn't even want this kind of bad energy at my wedding.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    I saw a youtube video I suppose friends of the groom made. The copper media guy has been sued many times then changes his LLC name and moves to start over. He sounds psycho like. What does he say to the couple "smile for the psycho".

    A little more about Alexis and the accident that took her life.

    https://krdo.com/news/2020/02/05/22-...ce-and-family/

    Alexis-Athena Wyatt was the driver of a Honda Fit that was struck by an oncoming semi-trailer on Monday, according to Colorado State Patrol. Troopers say Wyatt lost control of the car on an icy road and drifted into the oncoming lane.

    Justin Montney, the fianc? of Wyatt, says she was a kind person who encouraged others to be close to their family and friends. The two were engaged to be wed this May.

    "She loved her family more than anything else," he said.

    Montney says Wyatt graduated from Fort Hays State University in Kansas. She earned a degree in English and wanted to be a teacher that would "change the lives of her students."

    The couple met in college, but he didn't really get to know her until a Christian bible study retreat.

    "She was strong in her faith and loved God and Jesus," Montney said. "She was just kind and gentle and really amazing."

    That’s disgusting. I’m a pro photographer...hired for lots of weddings. I have a contract...but I also have a goddamn heart. They’d spent the money and didn’t want to tap resources to pay it back. Going on to create a website, I hope brings this business down. It lacks compassion, empathy and ethics. Screw the contract...be a human.

    I can understand not wanting to give a refund, but creating a website took it a step too far!

    I feel like a refund is the right thing to do when there is a death like this....it's not like the couple just decided to not get married. So, that I believe is wrong, and then to take it further the way they did? Disgusting.
