Erica and Tony’s Church and Baseball Wedding

Captured & submitted by Paul Douda Photography


To summarize Erica and Tony’s wedding…IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME!! These two incredible people are patient and thoughtful people who are the epitome of soulmates and best friends! We met Erica and Tony in 2019 after they had just got engaged to learn about their 2020 wedding plans. They were so excited to start their lives together and they the wretched COVID got in the way. Although they were disappointed, they weren’t going to let that get in the way. They couldn’t wait so instead they shifted their plans to an intimate ceremony with just a few people at Balboa Park, which we were lucky enough to capture. It was still important to them to have a larger ceremony and celebration with all of their friends and family in person. Fast forward to 2022 and the wedding of a lifetime!

We started the day with Erica and her bride tribe at a beautiful AirBNB in North Park followed by taking the wedding street car by Old Town Trolly Tours to Saint Patrick Catholic Church. After a beautiful ceremony celebrating their roots, we traveled to the Ultimate Skybox in downtown San Diego for the ultimate reception, but not before stopping in Petco Park to celebrate the playoffs with fellow Padres fans! You can’t beat being VIP seat holders on your wedding day! When describing their wedding day style, Erica and Tony wanted one thing – dancing…. LOTS of dancing! Once we were at the wedding, there was nothing but dancing and lots of laughter. It was the perfect wedding to top off the perfect year for the perfect couple. Plus… DONUTS! Special shout out to D3WoodDesigns for the fabulous donut wall! Congrats to the Rios’!
