They say that a couple who shares interests together, stays together. That poses an interesting challenge for a fanatic baseball blogger when trying to find someone to share the rest of your life with. Fortunately for me, I found a wonderful woman to fall in love with me, and she knew right away that part of getting me was a package best online casino reviews deal with falling in love with the Washington Nationals as well. Like in any relationship, she had to learn the important numbers, like my cell, my date of birth, and in our case she quickly learned how to recite the Nats lineup and starting rotation. That’s how I knew it was true love.
When getting married this summer, we knew that we had to incorporate our love of the Nationals into our special day somehow. Our first thought was to see if we could have the reception at Nats Park, but with that being way out of our budget we had to find a creative way to incorporate not only the Nats as a team, but the players we love watching together every night.
One trend we had noticed at weddings in recent years is that some couple’s have given the tables at their weddings different names based on themes that related to the couple. So for instance, at Awful Announcing blogger Matt Yoder’s wedding, he had Harry Potter themed tables (I think we sat at the forbidden forrest), and at my other friend Matt’s wedding last summer, we sat at the Wrigley Field table, which was one of him and his wife Maddie’s first dates. So for us the answer was obvious; instead of having table numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.., we should name our tables after our favorite Nats players and number them by their jersey number. We also decided that we should post a photo at each table of the two of us, photoshopped with the respective player.

It ended up being a big hit, and the Nats happened to win that night 11-0 over the Phillies. Oh, and she said “I do,” too. Here are some other baseball related photos from our special, taken by our awesome Washington Nats’ Fan wedding photographer, Laura Wainman.
It should be noted, for the record, that since our wedding the Nats have gone 38-17. #Rally Wedding.
