Though you might expect a professional baseball player and his Bride to have baseball touches sprinkled throughout their wedding, the only obviously baseball touch of this day is the baseball bat guest book. And even that got a glam makeover. With a classic black-and-white color scheme, accented with gold, this gorgeous Bride and Groom hit it out of the park with this Arizona wedding.

From The Bride…Joe and I met while we were out listening to one of my favorite musicians Kelley James. We both spotted each other instantly and a mutual friend sparked a conversation between us. He was the first man to ever open the car door for me on our first date and after that the rest was history.
Our wedding was a special day and time for us as we had been states away for the last 6 months during the baseball season, Joe is a professional pitcher for major league baseball. We wanted to put together a fun celebration for our family and friends to enjoy as well as ourselves! As much as baseball is a part of our lives, we kept the theme minimal as to not distract from the true meaning of our marriage and love for one another.
We chose the location of the reception due to the view of the beautiful green golf course and our favorite hobby to do together playing golf. We wanted the guests to enjoy the outdoor terrace during cocktail hour and be brought in for delicious food and dancing. We wanted to keep the decor simple, yet elegant and modern. We felt a black and white color scheme with a gold accent would be classic and timeless. Food, drinks and fun were most important for our reception. We brought in the next best thing to Kelley James, his brother, to DJ and keep people on the dance floor.
The actual day was full of love, laughter and tears. It’s hard to put into words how I felt walking down the isle and looking at all of the wonderful family and friends that were there to celebrate our love for each other and God. The day was about celebration, enjoying life and our future as Mr. and Mrs. Wieland.
