A couple getting married in Butler County planned the perfect wedding, and they say a printing company ruined it with a shocking delivery.
Stephen Heasley and Andrew Borg planned their ceremony for September. The night before the wedding, they opened a package that was supposed to contain their wedding programs.
Instead, they say Vistaprint sent them pamphlets about sin and “Satan’s influence” and “fighting temptation.”
The couple, who live in Australia, filed a federal lawsuit against the printing company alleging discrimination and hate crimes.
“It was supposed to be the happiest day of their life and it was marred by this delivery,” said the couple’s lawyer, Michael Willemin.
Willemin said the pamphlets are an assault on the rights of gay people.
Vistaprint says it has launched an immediate investigation.
“We hope change comes from this,” Willemin said. “Of course, (the couple) didn't want to be calm in the face of this, but they know what they're doing has to be done.”
