Leslie and Ryan are currently living in Amsterdam, but chose to hold their wedding in Austin at the Four Seasons Hotel this
past September. Having lived in many places all over the world, their guests traveled from far and wide for this first-class
destination wedding. The weather on the 18th was surprisingly perfect. Austin in September can be very hot, but that day the sun
cooperated and gave us just what we needed for the perfect outdoor ceremony. Chuck Kindswatter, a friend of the family, delivered
one of the best ceremonies I have ever heard. He had asked the bride and groom prior to the wedding day many questions about
each other and their first meeting and then incorporated their responses into the ceremony. It was heartfelt, sincere, at times funny
and brought us all into the immediate moment.
Bouquets of Austin did a beautiful job incorporating the vivid fall colors into the bouquets, ceremony site and table arrangements,
and thanks to Resha of 36th Street Events and Josh of Penguin Entertainment, because of them the event proceeded flawlessly.
Oh and of course, thanks to Ryan ‘s grandmother, Nell Jean “Muddie” Ledbetter, for the amazing cookie recipe they used instead
of a grooms cake. So yummy!
