A Mississippi couple says the church where they planned to get married turned them away because they are Black.

Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson say they set the date and mailed invitations, but the day before their wedding they received bad news from the pastor of the predominantly White First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs: Some members of the church complained about the Black couple having a wedding there.

The Wilsons, who live in nearby Jackson, said they attend the church regularly although they are not members.

Pastor Stan Weatherford told WLBT TV he was surprised when a small number of church members opposed holding the wedding at the church.

“This had never been done before here, so it was setting a new precedent, and there are those who reacted to that because of that,” said Weatherford.

Weatherford performed the July 21 ceremony at another church.
