“Our service and staff are impeccable,” continues Rybicki. “So it’s kind of like being on a large-scale cruise. Our crew is young and energetic, they’ll dance with guests if necessary. It’s such a happy time and it puts people in a great mood to be out on the water. Guests will sit on the bow the whole evening just to take it all in... Between the staff, food and ever-changing landscape, it’s the perfect mix for the perfect party.”

It’s true, the time may be at hand to name Detroit as a major wedding and travel destination. Beyond the gritty reputation of the city, and the economic concerns in the area with the automotive industry, the truth about Detroit is that it’s a dynamic locale with flavor and a transforming vitality. In the past decade, downtown Detroit has seen substantial growth and renovation, the Final Four is headed to the city this year, there are two new stadiums and recently constructed hotels with high-end

restaurants and flashy casinos. Film industry players such as Motown Motion Pictures and Wonderstruck are building studios in the area and the city’s tax incentives tempt much in the way of new growth. As a couple, whether residents or not, Detroit certainly has its draw. And Infinity & Ovation Yacht Charters has its niche as well. GM Steve Rybicki says, “I think what we have to offer is appealing to gay and lesbian couples because we provide innovative, sexy packages. They’re different. The events are private. We’re the right fit for people who think outside the box.” He continues, “The last eight years or so, it seems our country has taken such a positive stand; it’s so much more prevalent for people to open up to the LGBT community. In fact, most of the vendors we work with in putting together wedding packages are gay-owned companies. I’m happy that Infinity & Ovation can also reach out to the community and make all couples feel one step closer to being treated equally.”
