A popular influencer and YouTube star has lashed out at her critics after she was cheated over her budget wedding and ‘tacky’ reception.
Alex Pierce, best known online under the name of her successful jewelry line HRH Collectionbecame the target of vicious trolls after she shared photos of her wedding to second husband Jason Locke earlier this week.
The 38-year-old was relentlessly mocked for donning a recycled Zara dress at the reception, which was held in the parking lot of the Hitching Post bar and grill in Buellton, California.

The happy couple set up a tent in the eatery’s parking lot so they could enjoy their favorite steak with friends and family.
There were minimal decorations in the reception area, although each table came with a cherry-scented ashtray candle with ‘Mr & Mrs Locke’ printed on the front in gothic gangster font.
Guests dined on fresh vegetables, garlic bread, corn quesadillas and other foods from the Hitching Post’s menu.
At one point, the lucky groom donned a camouflage Trump/Pence cap.

After the reception, the bride put on yoga pants and went to a local casino to gamble with her husband and some of their closest friends.
The ceremony was held at Bethania Lutheran Church, with Alex wearing a bridal mini dress with a plunging neckline and cropped hem.
Despite the small scale of the event, Alex chose to livestream the wedding on Instagram for a fee of $25.
Critics of the popular influencer called it “the tackiest wedding ever,” and many took to social media to mock her for its location and low budget.
Critics of the popular influencer called it “the tackiest wedding ever,” and many took to social media to mock her about the venue and low budget.
“You had a trailer park wedding!” one wrote, while another tweeted, “I just know the receipt stank.”
One troll was even cruel enough to create a series of wedding items to mock the wedding.
Alex responded to the comment this week in a 32-minute video explaining that she wanted a quiet wedding with her loved ones rather than opting for an extravagant “to-do.”
She also said she “never knew what love was” until she met her second husband, and that their wedding day was a celebration of that – so they chose their favorite restaurant, Hitching Post, for the reception.

‘Do you think I didn’t know what my wedding would look like? For example, I haven’t planned my wedding?’ she said.
‘I don’t like big tasks. I’m the least to-do person ever. Because I’m an influencer, you expect me to, and you think I have money or whatever, you expect me to do these big tasks.
“B***h, I could fly to the f**king Maldives with every fucking f**king person in my fucking family and pay for everyone without it affecting me at all, you fucking idiot,” Alex continued.
‘What are you stupid? Do you think I’m poor? This is what is annoying. Why can’t I… this wedding isn’t based on anything other than that we love each other and we wanted to do what we love to do. We wanted to keep it casual and soft.”

The star went on to say, “Most weddings don’t look like this,” unless you spend “500,000 to $1 million.”
‘What, are you going to get a banquet in some smelly hotel? Even at The Waldorf it’s stupid. It’s a banquet hall. Last night someone there had a fucking meeting with a fucking company. It’s boring!’
Alex said she had no regrets about her marriage and that she and her groom planned their entire wedding around eating at the Hitching Post and then gambling at the nearby casino.
“We got married in the Bethania Lutheran Church and it’s an original, very typical, 1920s Lutheran church. Yes, a very simple, very cute little church, you stupid little heathen bastard.’

Discussing her budget wedding attire, Alex admitted that she picked the first wedding dress she’d tried and then grabbed an old Zara dress from her closet to wear at the reception.
“I tried on a wedding dress and I just bought it because I don’t care,” she said.
“I thought my wedding dress was damn pretty and I was wearing my mom’s original cap from when she got married in 1983. It was damn beautiful.
“You know what’s also funny? You little she/them out there, you little lab rats, you’re all like environmentalists, but you’ve come to get me because you’re carrying something from my closet.
“I did exactly what I wanted to do for my wedding and I would do it all over again.”

She finished: ‘I am happy, I have a very loving relationship. I actually have everything I want. I have my own business, a nice house, I have a husband.
“I’m really happy now and you guys are so mean and mean. I get it because you are miserable and ugly. And you’re a loser, I get that. Life is not fair.’
Alex runs her own popular jewelry brand, HRH Collection.
She is also a huge social media star, with 350,000 YouTube subscribers and 250,000 TikTok followers.
She often posts lengthy diatribes against the waking culture, political correctness and fashion trends she finds disgusting, such as beach waves and designer handbags.
