A's Baseball Wedding

Chris and Charlene dared to be different and infused their favorite sport, baseball, into their modern classic wedding. Not too much, but just enough to keep the groom happy and adore the guests with their whimical humor. We used stationeries to bring most of the baseball theme to life. See if you can spot them in the photos below...which was so graciously shared by the husband-and-wife team of { Lisa + James }.

To top it off, guests were treated to a half-time performance so cleverly arranged by the ever-so-talented Michelle at { MB Weddign Designs & Events }. Amazing! And so brave... no nets in place....

venues: The Cathedral of St. Mary and San Francisco Design Center
photography: Photography by Lisa + James
event planner: Michelle Barrionuevo-Mazzini of MB Wedding Designs & Events
floral design: Passiflora Designs
cake: Schubert's Bakery
makeup: Sherrie Long
cinematography: Andrew Hsu of Studio MSV

Chris and Charlene's wedding was featured in the 2009 winter issue of Today's Bride. You can read all about their planning in their real wedding feature.

Guests autographed their wishes on baseballs - which the groom will box and keep beside his baseball collection.

Thank you, Lisa + James, for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
