One year after their engagement, they chose their wedding date, June 26, 2021. “We did not even realize that was the same day we left Philly back in 2018 together,” Ms. Hobdy said.
They had an intimate wedding, 52 in-person guests and about the same number watching via livestream, at the Henry Lee House, a Victorian home built in 1894 in Denver.
Dr. Weight said the livestream really added to the day. “It allowed people to celebrate and attend virtually and allowed for shots of the wedding that wouldn’t have otherwise been captured. Quiet moments that we wouldn’t have seen,” Dr. Weight said. The ceremony was held at 11 a.m. with a reception later that evening.
Michael Satterfield, the founder of Field of Grace Ministries in Texas and the man who had baptized Ms. Hobdy, officiated. The bride wore a Sarah Seven crepe gown, and music from a live string duet accompanied the ceremony. A tented, champagne toast followed the ceremony.
In lieu of cake, old-fashioned ice cream with the couple’s wedding monogram as a chocolate medallion topper was served from an ice cream truck. Guests were gifted candles hand poured by the bride.
“We fell in love with each other’s ambition. We love building things in life,” Ms. Hobdy said. “We work and love as a team.”
