Vintage Baseball Wedding

Take us out to the ballgame! This was a wonderful shoot with our friends from Real Weddings Magazine. We took all the recent hype over America’s beloved past time of baseball and turned it into a wedding as classic as the sport itself. Whether you are an A’s fan or a Giant’s or just a fan in general here are some ideas to bring the sport you love into your special day!

With neutral colors like white, green, and some infusions of purple compliments the versatile wooden boxes that can be used to create a focal point of your ceremony or to help create eye-catching centerpieces.


For our centerpieces we used Eryngium, Sweet William, snapdragons and Stellata pods. They add beauty and whimsical air to your centerpieces that all your guests will be talking about. Personal touches can be added anywhere whether it be the repurposed goblets and jars for vases or the banner expressing your love.

Babe Ruth once said “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” So do not let the fear of having a wedding that is a little different keep you from having the wedding of a  lifetime. Let’s play ball!
