YAAAAAY CUBS!!!!!! #FlytheW
If you are curious, here is the link to this wedding featured in Style Me Pretty 🙂
Ellyse and Matt are two huge baseball fans! They were married in their tiny town of Dyersville, Iowa. If you don’t recognize that town check out the Kevin Costner film “Field of Dreams”. Also, stop being so lame, it’s the best movie ever.
I have never seen such a detailed wedding! From the getting ready outfits to the concession stand, the reception on the out field, the programs. All the amazing details pale in comparison to the love these two have for each other and their kids.
I need to take a moment right here. On the right is Ellyse’s Mother’s dress, on the left is Matt’s Mother’s dress. Both beautifully altered to be modern, yet retaining their original beauty. Ellyse wore her mother’s dress for the ceremony, then at the reception she changed and surprised Matt in his mother’s dress who passed away a few years ago. I don’t know if I’ve ever cried that hard during a wedding. It was one of the most beautiful moments I have ever had the honor to be a part of.
Let’s just take a second to notice Ellyse’s attention to detail. See the program booth? The Dyersville Field Sign? The Programs? All custom made by the bride!
Playing baseball on the field of dreams? Why not.
Yes please to a concession stand for cocktail hour!!!
The speeches all took place before the reception right out on the field.Ellyse’s Siblings sung a song they wrote with Ellyse that went “Take me out to the wedding, take me out with the crowd. Ellyse found a guy that will cut her some slack. Matt you should that there are no give backs. So it’s root, root, root for the Ungs cause they got married to day. For its 1, 2, probably 3 kids they’ll have. a new team is on its way.”
All the food was completely baseball themed. There was food inside as well as food trucks outside. The guests felt like they were really at a game! (a gourmet game!)
And the ice cream in the little Cubbies hats. I mean.. come on!!!
And everyone was Harry Caraying it out.
Ellyse changed dresses during the “mother/son” dance. All the feels!!!
