Wedding Wednesday: The Hoogland Wedding

The Hoogland Wedding | July 4, 2015 | Photography by Noah Magnifico- Photographer

After being a track athlete all her life, Kathleen was used to being chased. It wasn’t until she was at a party and met Matt, though, that her running days were finally over. The proposal took place at the Smithfield plantation, which was the location where their relationship really developed during a Cross Country meet in 2012. Matt developed an intricate scavenger hunt all around Blacksburg that led Kathleen to various important locations in their relationship. By the end of the hunt, Matt was waiting for Kathleen and proposed to her in a song he had written especially for that moment.

The wedding day was held on July 4th, but instead of going all out in red, white, and, blue, the couple decided to do a color scheme of soft pink, navy blue, ivory, and gold. This way the Fourth of July theme was still present, but not overwhelming. The night ended with a fireworks show put on by Skypainter and it was a beautiful way to have an exit for their big day.

The couple loved planning their wedding day, too. The vendors were fun and made a great connection with the couple as well as their photographer who came up with amazing and unique ideas for their photos. The caterer went above and beyond that night by having a waiter come to the bride and groom to serve them so that the couple didn’t have to leave their guests!

The best part of the the day, however, was the couple’s first dance. It was made extra fun because the couple hadn’t practiced beforehand, so they made it up as they went along. Their song was special to them, and even though it wasn’t well known, it helped to cement their love and pave the way into a beautiful marriage.
