Called Off Wedding Turns Into Bacchanal for Homeless

Everything was all set for Tamara Fowler’s wedding when suddenly it was called off. So, what did this Atlanta bride do to find a way to get through a very tough time?

Seeing no refunds were available from the caterer, she decided to invite 200 homeless people and children to enjoy an elegant 4-course dinner! She likened this to turning lemons into lemonade! So, after convincing the Hosea Feed the Hungry organization that this wasn’t a prank, the hall filled up with 200 homeless and low income people and their children to enjoy a day of celebration.

Seeing it’s cheaper to call off a wedding than to get a messy divorce, the Fowler family wants to continue this on an annual basis. They’ll call it The Annual Fowler Family Celebration of Love.

Could this become a new trend? Rather than hold a reception for one’s wedding guests, the gala would be thrown for the homeless families and individuals, instead!
