Jennifer and Eric Have Their Moment in History

20160903_162020Picture an urban industrial setting steeped in history. Shop worn wooden floors, beams and posts that show the wear of heavy machinery. If walls could talk, they would share the birth of the automobile and the sweat and tears of the men who struggled to make a dream a reality. The Ford Avenue Piquette Plant is a timeless backdrop, a unique and memorable place to hold an event. Guests can walk the same floor that a young Henry Ford walked, sit in the driver’s seat of a Model T and mingle where an invention that would change the world was born. It is a setting that is signature Detroit and can be found nowhere else.

Jennifer and Eric chose this setting for their wedding and as the pictures show, the history of the venue provided a riveting backdrop for a beautiful event. The floral arrangements were exceptionally well done and fit the setting with the texture and greenery. The couples friend, Michael Gilmore, did an excellent job as the officant. His voice projected clearly and we enjoyed his unique take on the vows “Do you, Jennifer, take Eric as your favorite person?”20160903_161249

We played “Stand by Me” for the family and bridesmaids and “Can’t Help Falling in Love” for Jennifer’s processional. “Don’t Stop Believin’” followed the pronouncement of the couple as husband and wife. We played many movie themes as requested by the movie loving couple and saw the staff lay out delicious dishes including a mac and cheese bar. The smells were tantalizing!  We especially enjoyed the creative way that the dinner tables were numbered.  Each number was accompanied by a picture of the bride and groom at that age.  What a fun conversation starter!

Congratulations to Eric and Jennifer and may their marriage be the beginning of a new historic story.
