Take Me Out To The Ballgame

I love weddings.

And I went to one of the coolest weddings ever this weekend.

It was for my college roommate, who happens to be a huge baseball and Minnesota Twins fan.

When I got to my hotel in Minneapolis, I was greeted with an adorable little gift.

A bucket filled with stadium food.

I think I died and went to heaven.

Cracker Jacks, peanuts, sunflower seeds; she thought of it all.

The invitation and save-the-dates were equally adorable.

On the left is her invitation, which is identical to a game ticket.

On the right, her save-the date. It was designed after a baseball card. On the front, the couple's picture. On the back, their "stats" ... including the date of their first meeting, first date, first kiss. Too clever.

I had to fly solo at this wedding, hubby couldn't leave the farm.

The welcome table at the reception was filled with all things baseball. Wheaties boxes featuring the Minnesota Twins, the couple's baseball gloves and all sorts of memorabilia of America's favorite past time.

Rather than sign a guestbook, we signed home plate.

She thought of every little detail.

And the venue just happened to be the Metropolitan Club at Target Stadium, where the Twins play ball.

And of course her colors were team colors, navy and red.

The night was simply perfect. 

And the couple -- adorable.

Her soldier deploys in a little more than a month. So the beginning of this marriage is bittersweet.

Needless to say, the bride was quite popular. It was nearly impossible to get a picture with her.

So another sorority sister and I thought we would take matters into our own hands.

We have several pictures like this one, from all angles. I'm pretty sure we reached stalker status.

Crap, I just got caught.


This is the girl who used to yell at the top of her lungs while watching Minnesota Twins' games on TV in college. Not gonna lie, we thought she was border-line nuts during baseball season.

And today it has all come full circle, as she is the most beautiful bride -- celebrating her wedding day at the Twins' stadium.

Pi Love Mrs. AndersEn.

((that's right folks, with an E. And you better get it right.))
