Ana Gabriela (Gaby) Navarrete (29 and a civil engineer) and Jonathan (Jon) Lane (31 and a civil engineer) celebrated Gaby's Mexican heritage with a festive bash at the Bell Island Casino marked by a live mariachi band and savory Latin fare.  “We wanted both of our families to feel included and represented,” Gaby says. The location for the ceremony—the casino’s airy patio—showed off views of the Detroit skyline. In the months leading up to their vows, Gaby and Jon collected dozens of wine bottles that their florist filled with fresh blooms hours before their vows. The casino’s looming floor-to-ceiling windows allowed guests to gaze out at the sunset while chowing down on authentic Mexican tacos and singing along to Latin tunes.
