FOR THE WEDDING: Ceremony Shuttle and Parking For those of you staying downtown, a shuttle will be available for travel to and from the hotels and the church Saturday. Please meet the shuttle outside the Aloft’s main entrance at 4:40pm (Trip 1) or 5pm (Trip 2), or at the Westin at 4:45pm or 5:05pm. The trip to Most Holy Trinity is about 8 minutes. The shuttle will make two trips back to the Madison for the reception immediately following the ceremony. The shuttle may be the easiest travel option from downtown since the Tigers will be playing.
If you are driving in on Saturday, we recommend parking in the free lot directly across from Most Holy Trinity’s entrance.
Reception Parking For those of you not staying downtown, complimentary valet service will be available at the Aloft (which is right around the corner from the reception space at the Madison) following the ceremony Saturday night. Just tell the valet that you're part of the Conway-Stathes wedding and you should be all set!
From the Aloft, walk east across Woodward on Witherell, take the first right on Broadway, and you’ll see the entrance to the Madison to your right--look for the 100-foot whale mural painted on the building next door.
