Wedding & Commencement Announcement
With great joy, George and Kristine Berry of New Braunfels, Texas and formerly of San Marcos, announce major milestones in the life of their daughter, Katherine Michelle Berry. In May 2017, Katherine received a Doctorate of Medicine degree from The Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (UTHSCSA) and the Senior Student Achievement Award for the Department of Neurosurgery. Her fiancé, Dr. Evan Luther, a 2016 graduate of UTHSCSA, had the honor of bestowing her hood.
Katherine began her seven year neurosurgery residency in June 2017 at Indiana University in Indianapolis while Evan continued his neurosurgery residency at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine (Jackson Memorial Hospital). Katherine graduated New Braunfels High School (2008) and The University of Texas – Austin (December 2012). Evan graduated Winston Churchill High School, San Antonio (2008) and The University of Texas – Austin (May 2012).
On New Year’s Eve, Katherine and Evan exchanged marriage vows on the beach near the lighthouse in Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, Key Biscayne, Florida, surrounded by close friends, coworkers and family from all over the country, and even Spain. The ceremony officiant was their close friend, Mike Boatwright, formerly of New Braunfels and now Dallas. Attendants were Kelly Kristina Nolan, sister of the bride, and Aimee Pugh, sister of the groom. The setting sun over the Gulf of Mexico was the perfect backdrop to begin the dinner and dancing under the stars and in the party tent/park pavilion. Celebrations ended with the Miami fireworks to usher in 2018. The prior evening, parents of the groom, Dr. Jay Luther and Dr. Jackie Pugh of San Antonio, hosted a rehearsal dinner at the Key Biscayne Yacht Club, attended by all out of town wedding guests. The couple honeymooned in Saint Lucia in the Caribbean Sea.
The bride returned to Indianapolis until June of this year when she was granted privilege to transfer to the University of Miami’s school of medicine to continue her neurosurgery residency. At last, the couple resides together in Miami, their home for the next seven years, and, as time allows, enjoy all that Miami has to offer.
