Kathleen Ryder weds Stephen Hauser

Kathleen Ryder and Stephen Hauser of Daniels Lane were married on May 27, 2007, at The International in Bolton, Massachusetts. The small, intimate ceremony was conducted by Gregory Hauser, brother of the groom, and was attended by close friends and family. Sons of the bride, James and Declan Godbout, were active participants in the ceremony.

The bride is the daughter of Alton and Mary Ryder of Mont Vernon, New Hampshire. She received her B.A. in English and M.Ed. in secondary education from the University of New Hampshire in 1989 and 1990, respectively. She devotes her time to their family and volunteers for the Carlisle School Association and Friends of the Gleason Public Library.

The groom is the son of Margaret K. Hauser of Rochester, New York. He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1981. He is currently employed as chief architect by Motorola in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

The couple, avid cyclists who participate yearly in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge on their tandem bicycle, spent their two-week honeymoon cycling the Pyrénées in France and Spain.

Several Carlisleans attended the wedding: Dale and Don Ryder, Patty and Chris Charvat, Carren Panico and Erik Synnestvedt, Catherine and Bill Fink, Leigh and Skip Tappen, Ann and Shannon Hill.
