"When I found out on Monday that the wedding would not be taking place, it just seemed like, of course, this would be something that we would do to give back,"  the bride's mother 53-yr-old Kari Duane told newsmen.

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