A couple who cancelled their ceremony on the wedding day has opted to donate the $30,000 reception venue and the expensive food to the homeless people nearby.
Twenty-five-year-old Sarah Cummins and her fiancée had cancelled the wedding ceremony at the last minute on their wedding day, without giving any reasons whatsoever.
The pharmacy student of Purdue University and her then husband-to be had prepared a reception that was meant to sit approximately 170 guests.
Fantastically decorated, it’s the sort that dream weddings are made of.
However, once the would-have-been couple arrived at a decision to call off the wedding, they decided they throw open the reception venue to the homeless people in a facility nearby.
Her idea, to invite people from four area homeless shelters to enjoy the 170-person reception, was well received.
“For me, it was an opportunity to let these people know they deserved to be at a place like this just as much as everyone else does,” Sarah said.
“It’s a great opportunity to spread love. Being homeless is kind of a big loss for all of these guys. This is just a very nice thing to do,” she added.
