Bride-To-Be Is Stood Up For Her Own Wedding, So She Throws A $35,000 Reception Party For The Homeless Instead

Nailed it.

Your wedding day should be all about celebrating the feeling of love that you share with that special someone. Unfortunately, Quinn Duane — a 27-year-old bride-to-be — didn't get a chance to celebrate it on the day she planned for months. 

Just five days before the special day, Quinn called her mom, Kari Duane, to tell her that her fiancé called off the wedding. To make things worse, $35,000 worth of deposits were already paid and more bills were piling up. 

Talk about a silver lining, because the family came up with the most epic way to deal with the wedding reception at Sacramento's Citizen Hotel that was no longer happening. Yep. They turned it into a massive feast for the city's homeless.


"When I found out on Monday that the wedding would not be taking place, it just seemed like, of course, this would be something that we would do to give back,” Kari Duane told KCRA.

Gnocchi, salmon, you name it — all from one of Sacramento’s finest hotels.

Yummy, yummy.

"When you're going through a hard time and a struggle, for you to get out and do something different and with your family is really a blessing" one of the guests said.

What a truly brilliant way to turn something that absolutely sucks into something bringing so much joy to people in need.
