Kathleen Baird Says “I Do” to High-School Sweetheart Marshall Young Jr.

Kathleen Baird and Marshall Young Jr.
September 7, 2019

A love story that began in the halls of All Saints Episcopal School culminated with a spectacular September afternoon ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel in Fort Worth. Kathleen Baird and Marshall Young Jr., both Fort Worth natives, had been dating for seven years when he popped the question. Kathleen came prepared when Marshall, who is notorious for being unable to keep a secret, planned a conspicuous brunch date at the River Crest Country Club. “I knew he had a whole spiel planned, but he didn’t even make it through the first sentence before he dropped to his knee and asked me to marry him,” she says. Working closely with Melanie Tatum, who also planned Kathleen’s Debutante ball, the couple was able to bring together their vision of a wedding that incorporated both sides of the family. On September 7, 2019, the two were wed by the All Saints chaplain in the same chapel that Kathleen’s grandparents were married in 63 years prior.
