Couple faces backlash after MAGA-themed wedding

A Michigan couple stirred up the internet when they decided to make their Fourth of July nuptials even more ‘Merica.

Audra Johnson and her husband Jeff, from Kalamazoo, Michigan, had a “Make America Great Again”-themed wedding, with red, white and blue decor. They posted about it using the hashtag #MAGAPatriotWedding, to pay tribute to President Donald Trump.

While the bridesmaids were dressed in patriotic blue, it was Audra’s wedding dress that had the public turning heads.

After wearing a plain white wedding gown for the ceremony, Audra changed into another gown for photos which featured the words “Make America Great Again” down the front of the dress and “Trump” in sparkly red letters on the back.

“We love our country and our president. To us, it wasn’t any different than any other themed wedding,” Audra told Fox 35.

After posting her wedding photos to Facebook, the couple received tons of comments, many of which were against the wedding idea.

“They are going to regret this so hardcore, and it makes me so happy. Eventually we’re all going to be wondering where all the MAGA’s went?,” one user wrote.

“This is the saddest thing I’ve ever seen,” another user wrote.

Johnson told CBS News that their wedding theme originally stopped at a patriotic theme, until she was able to work with designer and Trump supporter, Andre Soriano.

Soriano creates red-white-and-blue fashion, including “Trump 2020” dresses and the blue “Make America Great Again” gown singer Joy Villa wore at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
