The high school sweethearts, who were married in Miami after 12 years of dating, skipped the traditional wedding came and served a tiered pizza “cake” instead, the Huffington Post reported.

"Tony and I love pizza and aren't huge fans of cake, so we surprised our guests with pizza cake," the bride told Wedding Chicks. "It was saucy and delicious and what pizza dreams are made of."

Some of the couple’s other wedding details were baseball inspired because the groom is a catcher and a non-roster invitee this spring for Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Previously, Sanchez played three seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, but spent the 2016 season in the minor leagues.

Mini baseball bat key chains were used as escort cards, and drink napkins had baseball phrases like “Game over” and “Fits like a glove” printed on them.

Since the wedding theme was pizza and baseball, the new married couple served Cracker Jacks as dessert.
