Baseball fans, you're going to love this wedding inspired by America's favorite pastime.
Originally from Long Island, NY, Dominique grew up playing softball and watching Yankees games with her dad. Travis, raised on his family's farm in southern Maryland, started playing baseball at a young age as well. His grandma Sue-Sue passed on her love of the Orioles to him. Both continued to play their beloved sport on the collegiate level, and their ideal date is a trip to the ballpark.
Here, some of our favorite ideas from this fun wedding:
For the escort cards, each couple picked up their game-day ticket, leading them to a baseball stadium, from Camden Yards to Yankee Stadium.

Dominique's garter was half Yankees, half Orioles — a fun surprise for Travis when he removed it!
Instead of a traditional guest book, guests signed a jersey with their last name and wedding date on the back.
The cake topper couldn't be more perfect:
And each guest received a beer koozie modeled after a jersey, which were nestled in a peach crate the couple had used during their engagement photos. "We put baseballs in it for the engagement pictures, then lined it with baseball fabric (thanks mom!) and used it to hold the koozies at the wedding," said Dominique.
