$30000 reception donated to homeless after United States wedding cancelled

$30000 reception donated to homeless after United States wedding cancelled

Sarah Cummins and her ex-fiancé canceled their wedding after two years of planning, according to The Indianapolis Star. Not only was Cummins left with a broken heart, but she was also left with a nonrefundable contract for a reception at the the Ritz Charles in Carmel on Saturday night, which includes plated dinners for 170 guests.

She said: "It was really devastating, I called everyone, cancelled, apologised, cried, called vendors, cried some more and then I started feeling really sick about just throwing away all the food I ordered for the reception".

Instead, she made a decision to invite a local homeless shelter to come share the food that was meant to help celebrate her wedding. Cummins said that when she approached Araujo about donating the dinner, he agreed to what he believed was a selfless way to handle the situation.

Cummins told the Indianapolis Star that she and her fiance called off the wedding a week ago.

Cummins contacted several homeless shelters and worked with the hotel to rearrange the reception.

On the menu was chicken breast with artichokes, bourbon-glazed meatballs, roasted garlic bruschetta and, of course, wedding cake.

"It's just a really great opportunity for us, that was going to be a huge tragedy in her life", Erik Jensen who lives at Wheeler Mission homeless shelter said at the party.

The wedding feast will take place at the Ritz Charles in Carmel, complete with gold Eiffel Tower centerpieces and gourmet food.

Despite the generous gesture, Ms Cummings she did not feel that she was being particularly altruistic but was glad to have "some kind of happy memory to pull from" after working weekends and overtime to pay for it.

Cummins said she was not sure, however, what she will do with the wedding dress.

The guests will enjoy their gourmet dinner on the patio, where Cummins had wanted the dinner all along but held back in case of bad weather.

She greeted the guests as they arrived, with one guest, Charlie Allen, wearing a donated jacket for the occasion.

Cummins said she is taking her mother on what should have been honeymoon.

"Everyone has done so much to give me the most wonderful experience and it just really sucks that they had to waste it", she told IndyStar.
