Congratulations, Katherine & Cameron!

Katherine Anne Kilroy and John Cameron Foster were joined in matrimony at Country Club United Methodist Church in Kansas City, Missouri, on August 31st. The bride is the daughter of Marianne and Terry Kilroy of Kansas City. Her groom is the son of Ann and Russell Foster of Charlotte, North Carolina. On the eve of the wedding, the Fosters toasted their son and future daughter-in-law at a rehearsal dinner held at La Villa. Kyle Kilroy Nelson was her sister’s matron of honor. Abby Maurin Spell, the bride’s cousin, was a bridesmaid, as were Danielle Havens, Micaela Hosie, Lori Beth Watkins, Madeline Noal, Anna Kate Stone, Alyssa Early, and Tucker Nelson. Russell Foster was his son’s best man. The groomsmen were Graham Foster and Grayson Foster, brothers of the groom, along with Caleb Steen, George Marshall, Sumter Groves, Patrick Clapp, John Grantham, and Rhett Spencer. Meghan McCann, Jackie Williams, Rachel Anderson, Casey Foster, and Catherine Wilkins were members of the house party. Joel Nelson, the bride’s brother-in-law, was an usher, as were Andy Metzger, Collin Breeney, and Freddie Sherrill. Millie Foster was the flower girl, and James Foster was the ring bearer.

The Kilroys celebrated their daughter and new son-in-law at a reception at The Kansas City Country Club. The newlyweds enjoyed a honeymoon in Bermuda, and are now at home in Washington, D.C. Katherine is careering with the United States Republican Senate Cloakroom, and Cameron is the chief of staff for United States Representative Kevin Hern of Oklahoma.
