It was in that building that Mr. Ford designed his Model T and forever guaranteed himself a spot in the pages of the history.
Visitors can touch the beautiful brick walls and walk the original wood floors of the factory, which have become slightly worn since the days when workers manufactured and assembled various Ford models. You can even sit in one of the shiny old Ford beauties and take yourself back to the times of the automobile revolution. Even Mr. Ford’s office has been painstakingly preserved and is open to the public. If you are wondering what to do in Detroit on a rainy day, this is a great place to visit.

Hello Everyone Welcome to our Wedding Gift Registry! God has blessed us with great Parents-Pastors who has blessed us with so much for our New life together! We Thank you for Honoring us and celebrating with us as we prepare for our new life together!
Hilary and Alicia met at the Henry Ford museum and have been friends for almost 10 years now! They have seen each other through many of lifes journeys but the best one yet has been witnessing each other fall in love with Jesus, then finding real love.
Alicia claimed Kari as her beloved Canadian bacon shortly after she and her family made the move to MI almost 3 years ago. Since that day they become fast friends who enjoy going out to eat, playing in each others hair and setting life goals.
Cherelle and Alicia met at Macy's. Lisa thought Alicia had entirely too much spunk and energy to be real, but later found out she is all smiles 95% of the time! Lisa first offered her son as the ring bearer and then later on was enthused to meet the need of her final addition to her stellar bridal party.
Chloe is Alicia's high school friend who gladly stood in the roll as bridesmaid. Chole is very gracious and supportive and can't wait to Tallley it up!
Brand new to the Creer clan, this fiesty 1 year old of Alicia's eldest brother William and long time sister-in-law (which Alicia had the honor of standing up in their nuptuals) is looking to party it up at the #talleythatup2017 celebration. Let's pray the flowers make it out of the basket!
Liam had one job this year and it was to learn to walk before Alicia's wedding (she asked him before she was even engaged, see how her faith and foresight is set up) and he mastered it in less than 10 months! However boys will be boys and he will be about a 1 and a half years old so lets pray he makes it down the isle without any distractions.
Jerome's Brother and best Man
Thanks to our Parents Drs. Jerome & Theresa Talley, Dr. Scott will be officiating our Wedding Covenant. We so are Thankful for God's Love and His Favor!
My parents are so supportive and loving! They are great leaders and Pastors in the body of Christ. They taught me so much about life and I'm so thankful for how I was raised and thank my parents for everything they've done (and continue to do) for me and Alicia. I love you both so much!
My brother Jason is two years older than me, He is very talented and creative. He and i both are musicians at our Parents Church Daylight Christian Center
I love my family very dearly, we are spread out but I look forward to seeing us all together on Jerome and my big day!
Jerome: Ok here is the big story
Here is how we met, I dont remember the 1st time I saw her, but I remember she started in November 2012. We both worked at; in my opinion unfavorable office..... My 1st opinion of Alicia was she talked too much so early in the morning, it was annoying. I probably needed and attitude adjustment (whatever) Within 3-4 months I was able to tune her out, but one day we had a business breakfast at Leo's Coney Island which coincidently was the day I quit. A week later she texted me asking where I went. I explained I had a more promising opportunity and we left it at that, keeping in contact for networking purposes,
Now because this is my story I'll have you know she called me all the time after that. Obviously attracted to me!
She was leaving out of town for over a month so I decided to treat her to a movie, but not as a date. I picked her up not knowing she basically lived out of state from where I lived, but she came out of her apartment in these clothes.
What kind of clothes? These tight clothes. Leggings and heels... might have been combat boots, but I know they weren't work clothes, I was kind of impressed because she looked a lot different out of her suits she wore to work.
So we went to the movies and I tried to test her to see how she was. I asked her could I put my head on her seat... or something like that.
Alicia: No I'm good.
I said good because I didnt want to anyway!
When she went out of town we ended up getting to know each other through the distance and months later she brought up the idea of us getting into a relationship. It wasnt time yet for me and then I asked her eventually and then she declined, but we finally got it together especially when my mom met Alicia. Mom loved her and after that she went to important family functions, coming around on a normal basis and getting to know the real me and in turn I got to know her.
I am the 2nd Son and the baby of two Talley Children. I grew up in Detroit, Michigan. i am a Christian and was raised in a Word taught Church, Daylight Christian Center Church which i have been employed for since my teenage years of whom my parents are the pastors of. As a kid, I was really into Music, Playing Drums, Gospel Rap and basketball. As an adult now i Still really enjoy good music and Working out in the gym daily. I attended Christian School and Home school from kindergarten to 12th grade and graduated with honors from Light House Christian Academy. After High School I Went to Oakland County College and graduated with a Degree in Business in June 2012 Thanks to my Parents Drs. Jerome & Theresa Talley. Shortly after College I Started a Job working in Business Marketing and that's where Alicia and I met. Alicia is an amazing and smart woman of whom i Love dearly and I can't wait for our wedding day! After we're married, we plan to stay in MIchigan and start our Family and do great things in The Lord in every area of our lives.
Alicia is the 1st girl and 3rd child out of the 7 Creer kids. She has been working since she was 14 years old, and is currently employeed full time in finances while pursuing her business degree. Alicia enjoys cooking, pushing her physical fitness to the max and modeling when a great opportunity knocks!
She enjoys connecting with others especially when it comes to helping lead some to Christ and is currently an executive assitant at Daylight Church.
