Leslie wasn’t really expecting Mr. Right when she swiped right on Kyle’s photo, but the Tinder of love was ignited when Leslie and Kyle matched.
The larger the flame grew, the stronger their love became. One morning, Kyle made Leslie breakfast in bed. Reveling in the sweet gesture, Leslie didn’t expect that in middle of her breakfast, Kyle would bend down on one knee and ask for her hand in marriage.
“Of course I said ‘yes’ (with a mouth full of bacon) and danced and cried and went through all of the emotions,” Leslie said. “After breakfast, we headed to French Quarter Festival where all of my friends and family was waiting for us. We celebrated in true New Orleans style, with food, music and sunshine.”
With a love for New Orleans that goes as deep as their love for each other, their wedding was wrapped in New Orleans charm. From choosing the Riverview Room for its view of New Orleans to an in house second line, the couple captured the essence of New Orleans.
“Kyle and I both live, eat and breathe New Orleans. That was one of the first things that attracted me to him was his love and appreciation for the city,” Leslie said. “We modeled our wedding around the city we love and highlighted our love through it’s beauty.”
