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.

The bride’s father is an oncologist and researcher at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington.
