"You are my North, my South, my East and West, the sun of my morning and the night of my day!

The Whitney, music by the Rondo String Quartet

Asking your partner for their hand in marriage is a lovely gesture all own its own, but Benjamin took it to a new level with a romantic private dinner at The Whitney Hotel in Detroit. This iconic historic mansion on Woodward Avenue is world famous for upscale dining in Detroit. Completed in 1894, the Motor City landmark retains the exquisite charm of Detroit's early upper echelon as a venue for all to enjoy.

Benjamin had the family involved in the secret proposal. His sister escorted his soon-to-be fiance to the private dining room which was strewn with rose petals and tea light candles. Ben requested that we play "Movie Picture Soundtrack" by Radiohead when she walked through the door. The movie, which was the score to the movie I Origins, was a date night that had become very memorable for them.

It was a thrill to watch her surprise as she entered the room. And....she said "YES!" The couple enjoyed a four course meal while we serenaded them with romantic classics. We wish them the very best as they begin this next chapter of their lives and thank Ben for the privilege of being a part of his proposal.
