Our first stop is Detroit, where we’ll be setting up shop at the Detroit Foundation Hotel. The city’s former Fire Department Headquarters, this boutique hotel bridges the past and the present—just like our gowns! The industrial space features exposed brick and elegant interiors paired with plush furniture. While you’re there, be sure to check out the 5th floor event space, perfect for your rehearsal dinner or reception. Along with sweeping views of the downtown Detroit skyline, the space also features a light installation by local artist Patrick Ethen.

Next up, we head to Minneapolis and the Lora Hotel. Carved into the bluffs on the banks of the St. Croix River, the Lora retains features of the brewery that once stood in its place. Natural limestone blocks are complemented by jewel tones and whimsical touches throughout the modern space. After you’ve found your dream gown, don’t forget to take a peek at the Cave Dining Room. Tucked into the entrance to the nearby caves, it’s an ideal space for your intimate rehearsal dinner.

From the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” we head to the “Lone Star State.” One of Austin’s newest hotels, The LINE Austin combines downtown vibes with expansive views of nearby Town Lake. The hotel opened in 1965 as The Crest Inn before going under a complete renovation that pays homage to the original mid-century architecture. Today you’ll find minimalist design accented throughout with art by Central Texas artists. The hotel also boasts two stunning event spaces, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with dazzling views, that can accommodate everyone on your guest list. Stick around after your appointment to see the nightly spectacle of the world’s largest bat colony from the hotel bar!

Our final stop is the 21c Museum Hotel in Cincinnati. Centrally located in downtown Cincinnati, this mod hotel is also a contemporary art museum. The gallery spaces are clean and minimalist, while guest rooms feature custom furniture and a distinct home-away-from-home feel. Wander through the hotel’s several event venues and imagine your own rehearsal, ceremony, or reception in the modern, art-lined surroundings. We also recommend following up your bridal appointment with a stop at 21c’s rooftop spa!
