Couple cancels ceremony on wedding day, donates multimillion-naira reception to homeless
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 .
