Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

On a beautiful Saturday in late August, Louis Guerra Design LLC had the pleasure of designing wedding decor for a very special wedding at held at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The couple, who met at the stadium, were married on the field in the presence of family and friends in front of the home team's dugout.

After the ceremony and cocktail hour, the wedding party and their guests moved into the exclusive Legends restaurant for the reception. To soften the masculine and sporty look of the space, the bride chose a color palette of silver, white and pink and requested lots of candles to create a soft romantic atmosphere.

First the tables were covered with silver shimmer linens and sheer white overlays embroidered with silver thread in a circular pattern. We than placed illuminating centerpieces of pink orchids and calla lilies submerged in tall cylinder vases of various heights on mirror disks to reflect the floating and votive candles.

The final touch were the guest favors, customized keepsake baseballs encased in a clear acrylic box. Definitely a night to be remembered!
