A California family found a way to turn heartache into something beautiful by transforming their daughter's canceled wedding reception into a feast for the homeless community.

Just days before her wedding, 27-year-old Quinn Duane called her mom to deliver distressing news: The groom was having second thoughts about the nuptials, and the couple had broken up.

Since they had already paid for a reception at a beautiful Sacramento hotel, Quinn's mother, Kari, decided to follow through with the event anyway, scrapping the original guest list and instead inviting residents from a local homeless shelter.

On Saturday, about 90 homeless men, women and children arrived at Sacramento's Citizen Hotel to enjoy a feast, hosted by the Duane family.

Rashad Abdullah, one of many guests, brought his entire family: a wife and five children.

"When you're going through a hard time and a struggle for you to get out to do something different and with your family, it was really a blessing," he told Sacramento's KCRA.

The 27-year-old bride-to-be decided not to attend the event, understandably, opting to stay home with friends. However, her mother remained positive.

"I feel a lot of heartache and heartbreak for her, but I will take away something good from this, I will."
