Audra and Jeff Johnson‘s nuptials married on July 4th in Kalamazoo, surrounded by friends and family in “Make America Great Again” hats.
“It looked like America threw up all over my wedding and I’m not sorry.”
Johnson says in addition to celebrating their love, she and her husband decided to use their wedding day as an opportunity to celebrate Trump. The groomsmen wore ‘Don’t tread on me’ cuff links and each reception table had a petition for the anti-abortion “heartbeat bill.”
The bride’s nails were painted to look like American flags. She said,
“The dress is actually an Andre Soriano original. It’s actually made out of a MAGA flag.”
Andre Soriano is apparently known for his custom “Trump gowns.”
Despite the partisan theme, Johnson said all were welcome including her good friend and maid of honor, who is a Democrat, who said,
“We were gonna do our photos with the Trump hats and she said, ‘You know I love you, but I can’t wear the Trump hat. I said, ‘It’s OK. It’s OK. Just wear a red hat. We still love you. We can have completely different opinions about everything and still love each other.”
Not everyone in the couple’s life was so accepting. The groom’s father refused to attend. Johnson said,
“He sent us a text message. It said, ‘As long as you support that racist in the White House, I won’t be attending your wedding.’ Which is sad but we did have a lot of people that loved us and showed up.”
Asked if she were invited to an Obama-themed wedding would she attend, she said she’d be happy to.
