It's a whole block of redone houses, all swanked out. It's on the same block as the DIA and provides shuttle service to places within 5 miles...FREE! Hello romatic Tigers Getaway Weekend.
What's this a photo of? I pull out my camera to document the moment, and promptly fell down. Yeah. On the stairs while walking up the lovely front porch to go check in.
This was not part of the Inn, but was part of the neighborhood. Nice view.
Not the Detroit you normally think of, eh? That's the point! Matt and Kristin are the official Amabassadors of this lovely city! I was just a member of the Ferry St Beautification Society.
Yep, I was picking up trash in Detroit. Be the change people, be the change.
Then it was off to the Gem
in our fancy dress...
and gangsta poses
for what turned out to be the most beautiful wedding. It was thoughtful and sweet and just the nicest way to start a life together. I was really happy to be there to see it.
If you would like another write up please go to TracyB's write up. She got really good photos of the Bride and Groom, and the cake too! That cake! Lovely!
I was at the rowdy table, and pinned between a pole and the servers station to keep me away from the camera guy. Baby was indeed sent to the corner. Where was Patrick Swayze?
I made sort of an ass of myself pre rum and coke right in front of the camera and sound guy early on and was basically sent to the corner. It had something to do with the Groom, and flowers and being the official fluffer. Yeah.
Sure there was lot's of naughty stuff, but what's the deal with I'm finally old enough?
My cousins who are slightly older than me, (but now we're all 29, so they must know Einstein too) all got sand dollar necklaces from my Grandma one summer. I was like 7 and I didn't get one and I cried, and cried, and cried. Until Saturday, I pouted about it, and really, really wanted a sand dollar necklace, and kept quietly waiting until I would be old enough to get mine.
Well, turns out, I am now old enough!! I am a big girl cousin now!!!
Look! We listened to cool music and built a float for Prom!!
Do you think they'll know this gift is from Family De Ogre just by looking?
Then, because to get from the left side of the state to the right side of the state you have to pass the middle of the state, we ended up here...
Look, they had a dumpster with hookers' legs in it!
High quality Spinsanity Spindles!
Then we had to get food, because I was getting, well cranky. We stopped at a Mancino's and the girl was all "it's not the same as the other Maninco's."
