Groom Calls Off Wedding. Brides Parents Decide To Let Homeless People Eat At The Reception

A jilted bride put her wedding feast to good use by feeding Sacramento’s homeless, according to a local report. A salmon and tri-tip smorgasbord coordinated by Quinn Duane and her unidentified would-be husband would have fed 120 of the bride's friends and family Saturday afternoon, but the pricy $35,000 wedding was scrapped at the last minute when the groom got cold feet just five days before the reception. The new guests, including a slew of less fortunate families with children from local shelters, took advantage of the Duane family's kindness, matriarch Kari Duane told KCRA-TV. “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,” Duane told the TV station. The reception was catered by the posh restaurant at the Citizen Hotel, where on Saturday underserved Sacramento residents snaked around tables while in line for the buffet. Erika Craycraft, her husband Rashad Abdullah and their five children, were among those filling their stomachs. “I think it’s really generous to lose out on something so important to yourself and then give it to someone else is really giving,” Craycraft told the TV station. The bride stayed home instead of attending Saturday’s dinner, but will be getting a vacation out of her situation. Before tackling mounting bills tied to the wedding, mother and daughter will take off to Belize with the non-refundable honeymoon tickets and reservations.

Ahhhh weddings. Love a good wedding. Some food, some dancing, some alcohol. Get dressed to the 9s all stylish hoping to find a lady for the night. Everything looks classy on the surface, bet thats what the Venue and Bride both wanted out of this lovely event. What they were not hoping for was 120 homeless people all gathered in a “posh” restaurant inside whats suppose to be a lovely hotel. Sure its a nice gesture I guess if you’re the Moral Police, but the fact is, the bride was probably at home contemplating ending it all while a recovering drug addict was sitting where her friends and family were suppose to sit eating her expensive ass “Salmon and Tri-tip smorgasbord” because her fiance said fuck it and bailed.

Who hates this the most though, isn’t the bride, it’s the hotel. Now apparently this was suppose to be a nice ritzy venue? Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 9.14.10 AM

Apparently so. Except looking back at the picture above, it looks like they stripped it down to the bare bones knowing that the parent’s decided to use it to pedal exquisite food to bums. That place looks like you’re average senior citizen bingo hall now and I don’t blame em. You don’t know what kinda smells linger because of the homeless’ lack of hygiene. If they kept the open bar who knows what kind of catastrophe you’re in for with recovering addicts. A Hotel’s suppose to be where people go away to physically and mentally. I don’t want to leave my 500 dollar a night hotel room and potentially get stabbed on the way to the concierge desk because some nice white folks decided to feed the mass of homeless. If i were the Hotel id just tell them its off. Not worth the degradation of class. Yea you and the bride might be emotionally wrecked and want to do some good out of a shitty event, but you’re gonna be jet setting to Ibiza from you’re non-refundable honeymoon tickets while we have to steam clean the entire conference hall because you wanted to let bums eat there. Hope they didn’t use the fancy silverware or fine china either. Feed em in the broom closet with paper plates and plastic utensils cause you know if not they’ll steal that shit to pawn off later.
