A wedding day is always special. For Brewers prospect Garrett Mitchell and his now wife, Haley Cruse, their wedding day just got even more special.
This past Saturday, these two got married and officially became baseball’s top power couple as Mitchell is one of the Brewers top minor league prospects after starring at UCLA and Cruse was a softball star at Oregon and now plays professionally for the USSSA Pride in Florida.
They got engaged this spring on Memorial Day as Mitchell proposed in Milwaukee with Lake Michigan as the backdrop. So it was a quick turnaround for the wedding, with only about six and a half months in between.
But let’s take a moment and go back to an old tweet that Cruse sent back in February 2020.
She wanted her future husband to be willing to have their first dance be to “Better Together” by Luke Combs. A reasonable request. It’s a great song and perfect for a first dance. If he wasn’t down for that, he simply would not be there.
Luckily, she found someone down to have that song play in Brewers outfield prospect Garrett Mitchell. She posted the video proof Sunday afternoon.
If that doesn’t at least give you chills or tears or something, there’s something wrong with you.
It was a beautiful moment between these two and probably couldn’t get more perfect. Unless….
Unless 2021 CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs himself weighs in and comments on Twitter about their first dance. Unsurprisingly, Combs approved of the Brewers prospect following through on his wife’s request to play that song.
Not many couples get to have the artist who sings their perfect First Dance song not only see the video of their first dance, but also reply back and comment on it.
Luke Combs gave props to Brewers prospect Garrett Mitchell on his wedding day, and that’s pretty cool.
Cruse laid out an assignment that her future husband would have to be down with playing one of Luke Combs’ biggest hits on their wedding day. Garrett Mitchell understood that assignment, and Combs approved. A country music superstar congratulating a hopefully soon Brewers superstar. It doesn’t get much better than that.
From all of us at Reviewing the Brew, we’d like to congratulate Garrett and Haley Mitchell on their wedding! Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness between them!
