ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Gov. Larry Hogan’s daughter is getting married at the governor’s mansion this weekend, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.
The governor and first lady Yumi Hogan’s daughter, Julie Kim, will be married on Saturday at Government House, the name of the executive mansion. The groom is Taesoo Kim. They share a last name common among Koreans and Korean Americans.
The governor will walk the bride down the aisle.
Churchill said Hogan is covering the wedding costs. About 150 people are scheduled to attend. On Wednesday, a large tent was being assembled on the front lawn of the residence.
The bride and groom both attended the University of Michigan. They met while traveling abroad in Japan.
It will be the first marriage ceremony at the mansion since then-Gov. Parris Glendening married his deputy chief of staff, Jennifer Crawford, in 2002. That quiet and brief civil ceremony inside the mansion happened months after rumors about their relationship surfaced, following Glendening’s separation from his former wife of nearly 25 years.
Hogan will be hearing wedding bells for another member of the family this month. Churchill said the governor will be attending his brother Tim Hogan’s wedding in Italy, after the governor’s trade mission to Israel this month. Churchill said the governor will be paying the expenses for the private trip to the Florence area.
Hogan is scheduled to return Oct. 2.
