Wedding bells ring for couple

Katherine Elida Warren and Sandhira Himath Wijayaratne were married April 7, 2020 in a beautiful morning ceremony at Houghs Neck in Quincy, Massachusetts.

The wedding was officiated by Katherine’s godfather, Samuel Gregg Perry. Guests joined the ceremony by Zoom with the assistance of Lise Anne Olson and Peter Perry. The couple had originally planned to wed at IslandWood on Bainbridge Island before the start of the pandemic.

The couple met at Harvard Medical School. Katherine received a bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and a master’s degree from the University of Oxford and is is currently an MD-PhD student at Harvard Medical School. Sandhira earned a bachelor’s degree from Johns Hopkins University and will graduate in May 2020 with a medical degree from Harvard Medical School. In June, he is to start a residency in psychiatry at Yale New Haven Hospital.

Katherine is the daughter of Dr. Linda Warren and Dr. Edus (“Hootie”) Warren III of Bainbridge Island. The bride’s mother is a pediatrician at Peninsula Community Health Services. The bride’s father is an oncologist and researcher at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington.

Sandhira is the son of Dr. Madhavi Wijayaratne and Dr. Lankeswara Hemal Wijayaratne of Green Brook, New Jersey. The groom’s mother is a pediatrician at Clara Maas Medical Center in Belleville, New Jersey. The groom’s father is a retired civil engineer based in central New Jersey.

The couple plans to live in New Haven, Connecticut with their dog, Ollie.
