Saving the event was a complete success. The new guests arrived in several buses. And they certainly made themselves worthy of the event, they wore semi-formal clothes that were donated by local tailors and clothing stores (who were moved by Sarah’s story).
Sarah welcomed her guest with a smile and the guests repaid her kindness with friendliness and good manners (you would think it was a normal wedding reception).
Everyone enjoyed a delicious menu that included bourbon-glazed meatballs, goat cheese and roasted garlic bruschetta, chicken breast with artichokes and Chardonnay cream sauce. They even shared the wedding cake.
Out of 7 of Cummin’s bridesmaids, 3 helped with the event. Sarah’s mother and aunts also helped in making the event a success.
Although it was unfortunate that Sarah’s wedding was canceled, the event certainly helped bring back Sarah’s smile. She didn’t regret her decision in giving the reception to the homeless.
I will at least have some kind of happy memory to pull from, Sarah said.
What’s left is the wedding dress which Sarah hasn’t decided what to do with it yet, she says she doesn’t want to think about as it’s too painful for her.
