How a Cancelled $35,000.00 Wedding Reception Became a Blessing for Families.

Yellow flowers with wedding bands, EventSoJudith
After 365 days of planning, tasting, shopping, crying and laughing the day have finally arrived.  For those of us who have experienced the pleasure of planning a wedding, you know the sweat, blood, and tears that comes along with the journey. Imagine it all falling apart days before your wedding just as it did for Quinn Duane.

I personally always imagine my day to be bright with lots of sunshine. My colors would probably be a peachy-orange mixed with soft whites. Orchids, Calla Lillies, or Hydrangeas, haven't made decided on which one. I'm thinking one of those old school fifties over the face short veil. It would definitely be indoors. With Florida's bi-polar whether, I won't take the chance. I want a room with lots of windows and natural light. And of course the man of my dreams patiently waiting for me at the end of a long aisle lined with flowers, (not that I thought about this a lot).

So again, picture that special day, reception paid for, dresses ready, flower girl and ring boys ready, guests on their ways. All ready except for the groom. He changed his mind! Well, that's exactly what happened to a woman in California. She planned the perfect day with the perfect reception at the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento, CA. a $35,000.00 affair to be exact and the "man" of the hour changed his mind. But what the family did is priceless. Turning a sad and heartbreaking day into an act of kindness and generosity.
