A Wickedly Lovely Wedding Quote: “I know I Am Who I Am Today Because of You”

Congratulations to Elizabeth and Benjamin on their wedding this past week at the Ford Piquette T-Plex in Detroit. We’re seeing more couples looking for non-traditional venues for their wedding day and the Ford Piquette T-Plex does a great job. Surrounded by the historic vehicles, the three floors of wide open spaces are ideal for hosting a ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Pat, acting coordinator, does a great job coordinating her staff for these big events. Thanks to her for her help throughout the evening.
Benjamin and Elizabeth embraced the history of the Piquette Plant. As the pictures show, their table favors were etched glasses with the Model T along with their names and wedding date. The couple chose terrific romantic songs including the Beatles “Grow Old Along with Me”, “At Last” and “One Hand, One Heart”. One of the highlights was a reading from the Broadway show “Wicked” borrowing the words from Elphaba and Glinda’s duet “I know I am who I am today because of you”.
The bridal party processed to Purcell’s Trumpet Voluntary and was composed of six bridesmaids and two flower girls. The youngest flower girl was a three year old little charmer who made a point of straightening the brides gown while standing up front. We were pleased to see the photographer from Famous Photos in Lincoln Park notice her actions and snap up quite a few pictures.
The cocktail hour and reception were catered by Zingerman’s and it all smelled delicious. We had the pleasure of playing the cocktail hour and had fun playing the couples requested songs. Elizabeth loves the Disney movie Aladdin so of course, that was performed along with Jump, Jive and Wail, I’ve Got a Crush and several Beatles tunes. Our Led Zeppelin is always a hit and encourages guests to stop by and comment on how they don’t expect to hear Journey, Zeppelin and others from a string quartet. That always brings a smile to our faces. We wish Elizabeth and Benjamin the very best as husband and wife. IMG_1248
