The evening of our first date, Sean surprised me with amazing seats in the Club level at AT&T Park so after we picked our wedding date, I immediately went to the Giants website to see if there was a game on the night of the July 27.
The schedule wasn’t up for a while but we finally saw that there was a game, so we thought about trying to get the same tickets so we could be in the same section that we were last year, but the club level tickets are really expensive and with paying for the wedding, we were debating. But then, Sean’s sister and boyfriend, who have season tickets through work, surprised us with 4 tickets. We were so grateful and excited. They were great seats too!
Fortunately the Giants/Brewers matchup isn’t a big one so we were able to find tickets at a reasonable price for our families to come too. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get them in the same section, but we could get enough tickets that everyone would be able to sit together.
We took a little break between the reception and the game, taking a taxi from our hotel to the game. The taxi driver was like you guys are a little dressed up for the game 😉 but we wanted to wear our wedding gear to the game, although we did both wear our Altras to the game vs our dress shoes.
We met up with Sean’s sister and boyfriend outside the stadium to go inside. The lines were pretty long, so we took a shortcut through a bar that had an entrance to the park. We headed upstairs to check out the Customer Service area where they give out first timer certificates to the park and Sean’s brothers had already been there and had 2 awesome certificates made for us.
Sean’s sister got us Giant’s ball caps, which we love! I wasn’t able to wear mine during the game because I didn’t want to mess up my awesome updo :).
A few innings into the game, this lady looked up to us from the Giants dugout and was like did you guys get married today? I said yes, and she was like ok and then went back into the dugout. A little bit later she said, don’t go anywhere, you are going to be on TV. Well we thought she meant the Jumbo Tron at the stadium, but a little while later the young girls sitting next to us, were like, you guys are on TV! The lady was Amy G and she’s the Giant’s reporter. It was super cool. And a few of our friends in the Bay Area even saw it live. It was pretty awesome because it was her 14th wedding anniversary as well!
Sean’s mom has a client who knows Amy G and he asked her about talking to us that evening. She wasn’t roaming the stadium like she does sometimes, but she did do a quick recap of us on Giants TV. So cool!
After that we started making our way around the park to see the rest of our family. We headed to sit with his mom for a few minutes, and they got us on TV a second time! This time we were smiling and laughing and not quite so serious :).
A short inning or so with them, we headed over to see my family and Sean’s siblings. There weren’t any open seats near them so we were only able to stay for a few minutes before they ushered us out.
We got some traditional ballpark food, hotdogs and chicken fingers and headed back down to our seats. Just in time to see some awesome baseball. There were 2 challenges and the Brewer’s coach got kicked out of the game! It ended up that both challenges were in the Giants favor, which was even better. What an exciting way to finish off the game.
We had an absolutely fabulous day. And getting to cap it off with an exciting game made it that much better.
