An Austin Love Story
Kate and Sachin began dating as undergraduates at Rice University in Houston, and their love carried them both all the way through through Baylor College of Medicine.
An Austin native, Kate had always dreamed of getting married in her home town. Californian Sachin was easily persuaded. The couple chose Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt for its “elegant but inviting and trendy vibe,” says Kate, adding that the proximity to Rainey Street and downtown scene were pluses for their guests.
Following a separate ceremony featuring Hindu traditions, Kate and Sachin celebrated part two of their wedding day at Kimpton HVZ. The hotel’s ivy-covered wall was the picturesque scene of their “first look.” Young cousins served as ring bearers and “flower cowboy” during the ceremony in the exquisite Lady Bird Ballroom — the same spot as the reception, after a speedy “flip” by the HVZ wedding team.
“It was the best night of our lives,” says Kate. The pair is now living out their love as resident physicians in San Francisco.
