A groom gets cold feet, but this isn’t just a tragic love story.
Instead of calling off their daughter's $35,000 wedding, the Duanes decided to keep the reception. But it wasn’t the original 120 guests who came Saturday – it was Sacramento’s homeless population.
When 27-year-old Quinn Duane called her mother to tell her that her wedding wasn’t happening, Kari Duane was shocked. It was supposed to be beautiful banquet at Sacramento’s Citizen Hotel, overlooking the city skyline, and the deposits had already been paid. So she did what she thought was the right thing to do: She invited the city’s homeless to a free, extravagant meal.
