A Romantic Black Tie Wedding at the Westin Book Cadillac Detroit in Detroit, Michigan

A dramatic ceiling installation and elegant arrangements of roses and dahlias decorated Meryl Sklar (27 and a social worker) and Adam Bleznak’s (27 and a real estate investor) traditional Jewish wedding.

Plenty of candlelight and a single crystal chandelier illuminated the interior of the historic neo-Renaissance hotel in the heart of downtown Detroit. “We wanted something that felt authentic to the city,” Meryl says of sending guests home with chocolate favors from a local Hamtramck bakery.

A monogrammed ribbon reflective of Meryl’s new initials held together her bouquet of muted cafe au lait dahlias.

Dozens of candles and charcoal-colored silk linens topped tables for optimum opulence.
