Guests were ushered to their seats by David Foreman, godfather of the bride, and Gerald Simon, godfather of the groom.
Musical selections for the service were performed by Brittany Saucier and Chase Ludeau.
Escorted down the aisle by her father, Lindsay was gorgeous in a strapless gown of ivory satin overlaid with beaded lace. The scalloped neckline and fit-and-flare silhouette, along with the intricately patterned pearl embellishments, lent a decidedly romantic feel to the gown. The back of the dress flowed into a semi-cathedral train, with the lace overlay extending beyond the satin lining for a dreamy look.
For her headpiece, the bride selected an ivory lace mantilla that she affixed under her upswept hair for a flowing effect that complemented the style of her gown.
Lindsay carried a bouquet of ivory roses, yellow and pink rose buds and purple hydrangeas with iced berries and greenery intermingled. Crystals and amethyst beads were set into the bouquet for a tasteful sparkle, and Lindsay’s great grandmother’s rosary was woven into the flowers.
To ensure a happy marriage, the bride incorporated the traditional “good luck” items into her attire. Her great-grandmother’s rosary was “something old.” Her dress was “something new,” the pearl and rhinestone bracelets that she wore were “something borrowed” and her shoes were “something blue.”
Hillary David, friend of the bride, served as maid of honor. Also serving as bridal attendants were Amy Ardoin and Brandi Simon, sisters of the bride; Katherine Foreman, cousin of the bride; Christian Semar and Ellen Melancon, friends of the bride; Tiffany Simon, cousin of the groom; and Mindy Hollier, sister-in-law of the groom.
The bridal attendants wore short strapless gowns created from plum-colored crinkle chiffon. The bodices featured horizontal ruching that crisscrossed to form sweetheart necklines and then flowed into front cascades that added dimension to the skirts.
The attendants carried hand-held bouquets of dahlias, roses and peonies in a white and strawberry combination and antique pink and purple hydrangeas hand-tied with light gray ribbon.
Layna Simon, godchild of the bride, and Olivia Semar, family friend, served as flower girls. They shined in flowing tea-length spaghetti strap dresses of ivory chiffon banded with lace at the waists. The girls carried flower cones held by sheer ivory ribbons and filled with antique pink, purple and white hydrangeas.
The groom wore a heather gray tuxedo with an ivory vest and tie. A boutonniere fashioned from a dahlia bud enhanced with iced berries and dried centauries braided with light gray ribbon adorned his lapel.
Dustin Hollier, brother of the groom, served as best man. Also standing for the groom were his brother Jonathan Hollier and his friends Chance Semar, Derek Melancon, Chad Leger, Jeremy Breaux, Jared Bach and Trevor Istre.
The groomsmen wore heather gray tuxedoes with plum vests and ties to coordinate with the bridesmaids gowns. They wore boutonnieres matching that of the groom.
Braylon Hollier, cousin of the groom, was dressed to match the groom and served as ring bearer.
For her daughter’s wedding, the mother of the bride, the former Deborah Foreman, selected a chic hammered shimmer lilac dress with a three-quarter sleeve jacket. The dress featured an empire waist embellished with jewel and sequin detail and a tiered knee-length skirt.
The mother of the groom, the former Mona Cormier, wore a one-shouldered blue topaz chiffon dress. The dress’s shoulder strap, embellished with a broach, was made of sheer fabric that softened the look. A pleated waistband and mini-length swing skirt completed the look.
Both mothers wore pearl bracelets covered with freesia, tiny dark pink lilies and pink and purple hydrangeas embellished with iced berries and soft gray ribbon.
Selected Scriptures were read by Dolores Leblanc, godmother of the bride, and Dawn Clostio, godmother of the groom.
Offertory gifts were presented by Kimberly Simon and Pamela Quebodeaux.
Following the ceremony, the newlywed couple was honored with a reception at the Rice Festival Building in Crowley.
The bride’s four-tiered wedding cake was truly elegant and, with its vintage style, reminiscent of a gone-by era. Iced with white buttercream, it was adorned with buttercream ribbons, scrolls and pearls. Each of its four tiers featured a different flavor: red velvet with cream cheese filling, vanilla with strawberry filling, pineapple with pineapple filling and French vanilla with strawberry filling. The cake was served by Dolores Leblanc, godmother of the bride.
The groom’s cake, made by the groom’s grandmother, was a three-layered yellow confection decorated to reflect the groom’s hobbies, including football, softball and motorcycling. The groom’s two favorite football teams, the New Orleans Saints and the LSU Tigers, were represented as well. Dawn Clostio, godmother of the groom, served the cake.
Following a wedding trip to Tahiti and Bora Bora in the French Polynesian islands, the couple will reside in Duson.
