The Bots Wedding and amazing gifts!
This past Sunday my friend Jo got married Ray in Hart Plaza at the base of the Gateway to Freedom statue. They did so to honor the memory of many slaves who found freedom at the international waters of Detroit..a city they met in and fell in love.
They came in from out of state a few days early and invited many guests..they made Detroit a destination wedding! And they did this in a variety of ways, but why do i bother to tell you that on this blog you may be wondering.
well keep reading..One of those ways was to give a bus tour from 9am to 4pm of the city they love..and this was not a popular location tour...no instead it was places they loved and enjoyed. They showed no ruin porn, but places with wonderful stories.
Two of those places were the Artist Village and the Motor City Java House were they had activities arranged for their guests to participate in if they so wished.
One of those activities was to pack backpacks for the homeless of Detroit. I arrived there with Rosey and we set up an assembly line of items to people to pack into the bags. Shawn showed up with awesome hygiene packs he made from items donated from hotels by the airport!!
Just over 30 packs were made and are ready for the streets and we are so grateful to each and every guest of Jo & Rays who took the time to help out.
We are humbled and amazed at both Jo & Ray for even thinking of making a part of their visit to Detroit and more so as a part of their ceremony. It shows so much about who they are and the couple they are going to be.
Thank you so much..small bows and deep love!
