As the sports freak that I am, I'm completely obsessed with postseason baseball at the moment. So when I heard about a "Diamond Wedding" package at the Omni Hotel San Diego, aimed at attracting baseball-loving couples, naturally, my interest was piqued.
The luxury property in San Diego's historic Gaslamp Quarter is offering a new, exclusive wedding package complete with a private wedding ceremony on the baseball diamond at PETCO Park (home of the Padres), which is connected to the Omni via sky-bridge. The package also includes deluxe accommodations in the 21st-floor Tony Gwynn suite, which features a bedroom, kitchen, wet bar, living room, dining space, and private balcony overlooking the San Diego Bay; a wedding reception at the Omni San Diego Hotel; a baseball-themed wedding cupcake display; and custom-designed bobbleheads of the couple (for real!) to give as favors. The package is priced based on menu selection and is available throughout 2012.
If you don't know—or care about—the difference between an RBI and an ERA and this baseball dream wedding sounds a bit too fanatical, the Omni San Diego also offers additional packages and getaway deals throughout the winter season. Visit the hotel website for details.—Danine Alati
