I promised you a wedding and other community events from the Dedication in Detroit. First, check out this video: http://tinyurl.com/6rufpl
And, then direct from Fuzzytek, a Detroit City Photographer and Doxie one of the team members of the Detroit Dream Project, here you go…
The celebration of completing the build for the Detroit Dream Project took many forms. For Greg and Angela it was their wedding day, surrounded by friends. The rain came in the afternoon and most went home, but not for long. Gina came over after doing makeup for the performers at the Redford Theater. She brought a couple models to shoot Identity Fashions at the temple as sunset fell. At night performers spun a glow of flame near the structure as it was lit with colored LEDs.
It was a lovely first day of summer though rains clouds danced above our heads. Despite that we started the days events with everyone doing a Tip Toe Parade led by Warrior Girl around the block that weaved everyone through the Temple to ring a Tibetan bell to start the wedding of Gregg and Angela from Detroit Evolution Lab. The wedding was a beautiful ceremony bearing witness to their amazing partnership and love. It was an honor to behold. The rains held off until just after the ceremony. The crowds cleared for a few hours to return at dusk to start the evenings events! As Blight Busters 20th anniversary events surrounded the Temple we entertained passers by and the curious with glowing poi and fires show of hoops and staff and Strings of Fire performed soulful violin and dancing fire! It was a heart warming to see all the friendships built between the members of the Brightmoor and Michigan Burning Man communities over the last two years gather and celebrate on that beautiful and warm midsummer solstice evening!
