The bride’s family decided to invite all the homeless people of the city to the luxurious event instead of canceling it when the groom-to-be left his bride some days before their wedding,
A woman named Quinn Duane, who lives in Sacramento, California was ready to tie the knot with Landon Borup in an extravagant wedding ceremony at the luxury hotel of the city.
Nonetheless, a week before the wedding day, things took an unexpected turn, and the 27-years-olld Borup called off his wedding with Quinn.
This thing left the bride in great shock and she had no idea what she should do, but in that difficult time, her family stayed strong and didn’t give up, even though they tried their best to make this day remarkable by turning the wedding event into a feast for the less fortunate people of the city.
While talking to the KCRA, Quinn’s mother, Kari Duane shared that before her daughter’s fiancé canceled the wedding, all the dues for their wedding event had already been paid.
“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,” she told to the outlet.
Along with her husband she decided to invite all the poor and homeless people of the city at the citizen hotel to feed them a fancy meal.
“Even though my husband and I were feeling very sad for our daughter, it was heartwarming to see so many people be there and enjoy a meal,” Duane said.
“I feel a lot of heartache and heartbreak for her, but I will take away something good from this,” she further said.
She also told that her 27-year-old daughter, Quinn was devastated at that time as it was supposed to be her wedding day, so she stayed at home and watched complete footage of the event on TV which made her feel better that her family did something great.
As per KCRA, “First to arrive, nearly a half hour early, was a woman who lives in a shelter with others too old to work and too financially strapped to afford rent.”
Duane also said that how she and her husband felt when only one woman came and they thought that she would be the only person they will going to serve the food tonight, however after her more and more people started arriving.
“There were single people, families, grandparents, and newborns. It was a house full,” she said.
A man whose name is Rashad Abdullah took his five children and wife to the feast, and shared to the outlet that, “When you’re going through a hard time and a struggle for you to get out to do something different and with your family, it was really a blessing,”
Abdullah’s wife also thanked to the kind family for their great act by saying that not all the people have courage to do what this family did after their daughter’s groom to be called off the marriage.
“To lose out on something so important to yourself and then give it to someone else is really giving, really kind,” she said.
According to the KCRA reports, “The food is the same as what you’d get at the hotel’s four-star restaurant, The Grange. In addition to appetizers, salad, cauliflower, gnocchi, salmon, and even tri-tip were served.”
“There was plenty to go around as 120 guests were invited before the wedding got canceled.”
At the end of the day, Quinn’s family came back home with mixed feelings.
The Duane family had also booked a non-refundable honeymoon trip to Belize, for the couple, so Kari made her daughter agree to go with her to Belize so that they both can enjoy some mother-daughter time together.
