Joe Mauer's Wedding Plans

I've attended dozens of weddings, been in three, played piano at two, read a poem at another, and been the bride at one.  With that kind of tally, I've accumulated a pretty good idea of what a wedding can be like, and the thought of Joe Mauer's upcoming wedding to fiance Maddie Bisanz had me daydreaming about what a beautiful Minnesota wedding the couple could enjoy...especially because the budget must be pretty awesome to work with courtesy of Joe Mauer's big paychecks from the Minnesota Twins!

Since both Joe Mauer and Maddie Bisanz are Cretin-Derham Hall alums, it would be highly appropriate to celebrate their big day in a similar fashion--old school, classic St. Paul in the same neck of the woods as their alma mater.  What could be more stately than a reception in a gorgeous Summit Avenue mansion?  Of course, the guest list would have to be limited, which would probably be tricky when the Minnesota Twins establishment are all expecting invites!  Oh the stresses of planning for the big day when it involves a celebrity!

Perhaps a better sized venue would be the University Club (near where Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau once lived!) or somewhere in downtown St. Paul, like the Christos Union Depot.  I once attended a wedding there and was impressed with its historical aspects and beautiful architecture.

How could the couple incorporate Joe Mauer and Minnesota Twins baseball details into their wedding?  Perhaps the accent colors could be navy and a crisp white.  How pretty would that be?
Beautiful (and Minnesota Twins hue) blue!

Another easy way to honor Joe Mauer's baseball loving personality is to create a special groom's cake in a Minnesota Twins theme.  I love this one!

Let's hope Joe Mauer is a bit less reluctant than this sugary groom.

Just make the bride's hair Maddie Bisanz's shade of brunette, and you've got a the perfect personal wedding touch!  Can't wait to see the details of the real Joe Mauer wedding.  In the meantime, I'll keep dreaming...
