Abby Marshall, a 2001 graduate of Bainbridge High School, and Christopher Hoag were married on March 30, 2013 at Sodo Park in Seattle.

Marshall, the daughter of Becky Fox Marshall of Bainbridge Island and the late Rory Marshall, will be teaching fourth grade at Blakely Elementary School on Bainbridge this fall. A graduate of Willamette University in Salem, Ore., she was placed in Las Vegas by Teach For America in 2005. She remained in Las Vegas, teaching elementary school and special education for the Clark County School District where she is currently a literacy coach.

Hoag, the son of Marti and David Hoag of McAllister, Mont., graduated from Borah High School in Boise, Idaho. He graduated from the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho, in 2005 and moved to Las Vegas in 2007. He is now working at Point It in Seattle.

The couple, who met in 2009, is making their first home on Bainbridge Island.

The bride’s uncle, Tom Lamping, was the wedding officiant. The wedding party included the bride’s sister, Claire Marshall of Boston, as maid of honor; Pete Schindele of Boise, friend of the groom, as best man; and Lucy Brown of Bainbridge Island, daughter of the bride’s cousin, as the flower girl.
