Headline reads: Toronto Couple Cancels Big Wedding to Help Sponsor Syrian Refugee Family Instead.
A Toronto couple recently canceled their big wedding to use the money instead to help sponsor a Syrian refugee family’s settlement into Canada.
Samantha Jackson and Farzin Yousefian had planned a traditional wedding for March — complete with a gorgeous venue, a caterer and other vendors – costing tens of thousands of dollars, Jackson told ABC News today.
But the two decided to toss their plans after realizing the money could be used for a cause close to their hearts and greater than themselves, said Jackson, a doctorate student studying public policy.
“We were in the midst of wedding planning in September when that devastating photo of 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi found on a beach came out,” Jackson said. “Like so many other people, we became acutely aware of how bad the situation was getting and how important it was to act and do something positive, so we canceled the wedding and redirected the funds.”

St Mary’s Catholic Church in Breckenridge, Colorado provided the perfect setting for Mike and Antionette’s wedding this summer. This church is one of my faves because of the beautiful stained glass. After the ceremony the couple and guests headed to Ten Mile Station for the wedding reception. Cocktail hour was on the patio and included some fun lawn games. While everyone was eating, drinking and playing games, Meadow Mountain Music played awesome bluegrass style music. The reception was next and Cori Cook and her team really incorporated those golds, blues and deep pinks that were seen throughout. Gorgeous! Speaking of gold, check out that cake. Katy at Sugar Breck really used gold in a fun, flirty way. After dinner guests moved to the dance floor to dance the night away to the Raising Cain Band. The day and night really could not have gone better and I think those smiling faces show that. A huge thank you to Mark and Michele at IN Photography for capturing their day and sharing these amazing photos!
