Kathryn and Arun's wedding was full of personal details and sentimental touches, encompassing all of the elements that make a wedding truly meaningful. Held at a unique venue in Baltimore, a 1932 Gothic revival mansion, Cloisters Castle was also the site of Kathryn's parents' nuptials some 40 years earlier. As a touching tribute to her late mother's memory, Kathryn knew she wanted to marry Arun at the Cloisters to continue the sentimental family tradition, and this grand location did just that.

Juxtaposing their own more minimal, relaxed style with the grandeur of a medieval castle, Kathryn and Arun chose farm tables, wooden cross-back chairs, and all white flowers with lush greenery to decorate their reception space. When rain threatened their al fresco dinner plans, they kept calm and still held the ceremony and cocktail hour outside on the patio, with the castle facade in the background. Kathryn's two bridesmaids wore light gray Jenny Yoo dresses, and the bridal party processed to "Somebody to Love" by Queen.

Guests enjoyed Maryland crabcakes for dinner from Rouge Catering, and later snacked on Frito pie (Texas chili poured over Frito chips), a nod to Arun's Texas roots. The dance floor was packed until the end of the night, with the groom and the father of the bride hugging and stomping to the beat of the music.

Guests departed with maple syrup favors, homemade from the bride's family's farm in upstate New York. It was truly an emotional and memorable evening.
