Cathryn Ann Clüver and Tom Ashbrook were married June 17 in Lincoln, Mass. Patricia Clifford, the acting town clerk of Concord, Mass., officiated at the Gropius House, the home built there by the architect and founder of the Bauhaus School, Walter Gropius.

The bride, 41, is the founding executive director of the Future of Diplomacy Project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School. She graduated from Brown and received a master’s in European studies from the London School of Economics and a master’s in public administration from the Harvard Kennedy School.

She is a daughter of Barbara L. Clüver and Henning H. Clüver of Wiesbaden, Germany. The bride’s father retired as a vice principal of the Elly-Heuss-Schule in Wiesbaden. He also served as a chairman in Wiesbaden for the Active Jewish Museum, which conducts archival work to commemorate local citizens lost in the Holocaust. Her mother retired as an A.P.

The groom, 61, is the host of the NPR talk show “On Point,” a daily program produced at WBUR in Boston. He graduated from Yale. He is the author of “The Leap,” which chronicles his time as an internet entrepreneur, after a career as a journalist.

He is a son of David K. Ashbrook of Bloomington, Ill., and the late Norma J. Ashbrook. The groom’s father retired as a Realtor and is chaplain of the Illinois chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution. His mother was an international education coordinator at Illinois State University.

The groom was a widower.
