Heidelberg Project

This is at the Heidelberg Project, the place where we’re getting married. We visited earlier this year, and will be back in about a week and a half. It’s a pretty unconventional site for a wedding, but exactly the kind of place for us. I wrote a bit about its history in an earlier post, but we wanted to point out its recent mention in The New York Times, one that says the city’s “particular brand of civic and economic decay has also drawn something unexpected: a small but well-publicized movement of artists and other creative types trying to wring something out of the rubble.”

It goes on to say, “That invitation to appreciate the city, instead of bemoan it, is also behind some of Detroit’s best-known renewals, like the Heidelberg Project, which turns houses into found-object sculptures…”

A few of the particulars:

  • We will, indeed, be holding our ceremony outdoors and in the street between Gratiot and Mt. Elliott at 4 p.m. August 28. If it rains, we’ll head right to the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle.
  • There is parking available, but it’s extremely limited. If you are staying at the hotel, there will be a shuttle running from the Fort Shelby to the Heidelberg Project to the Dossin Great Lake Museum and then back to the hotel that evening. If you are driving, we highly recommend that you carpool, or park your cars in the Dossin lot at Belle Isle, and carpool from there.
  • We’ll be married by Judge Brian Sullivan of the Third Judicial Circuit Court of Michigan. It’s not likely to be a long ceremony, but we promise it will be memorable.
