What a great catch!

Brooke Bloomingdale and Justin Reilly got engaged at Yankee Stadium. Justin made a pitch off the field, popping the question with an assist from the stadium's Jumbotron.

Brooke accepted, and the couple were wed on Sept. 11, 2010 in the Rose Garden at Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua. Continuing with the New York Yankee's theme, the couple's ring bearer, Riley Bloomingdale, who is the bride's nephew, carried a baseball glove belonging to Justin's late father Terence Reilly, Jr. with a pillow modeled like a baseball inside to present the ring. Chaplin Cliff Houston officiated at the ceremony.

The couple rode a classic open air trolley to their reception at the Geneva Ramada Lakefront, in Geneva,NY.

Brooke is the daughter of Jack and Cheryl Bloomingdale. Justin is the son of David and Rose Pease and the late Terence Reilly, Jr.

Jaclyn Bloomingdale, sister of the bride, was the Maid of Honor, while Elizabeth Pease(sister of the groom), Jessica Shaller, Laura Friedland and Kaitlyn Conboy were the bridesmaids. The groom's niece, Marissa Reilly, was the flower girl.

Andrew Pease, brother of the groom, was the Best Man. Groomsmen included Brad Bloomingdale,Tom Notarpole, Brandon Young and William Nyquist.

The wedding cake was a tower of round baseball laced cakes with baseball bats as pillars intertwined with calla lilies. The guests signed a Yankee jersey as a keepsake for the newlyweds.

After honeymooning in Jamaica, the couple have made their home in Groton.

Justin is a graduate of Skaneateles High School '99 and RIT '04 as a Mechanical Engineer. He works at Intertek in Cortland.
