A newlywed couple from Perry County proved on Saturday they deserve to be in the discussion for the biggest area wildcats fans.
Justin and Lauren Maggard spent the evening of their wedding reception dancing, feasting and watching the wildcats play on a jumbo screen that was front and center. The couple says the moment the University of Kentucky’s men’s basketball team made it to the Final Four, the decision was a no brainer.
“When Kentucky won, my texts, Facebook, and everything lit up. Everyone wanted to know if we were going to play the game and I got it done that night. I had to have the Cats play,” says Lauren.
“Kentucky made the tournament, so we have to watch it, so we have the big screen now and our guests are happy,” Justin said.
The couple celebrated their marriage with that reception at Hazard Community & Technical College.
