Cathy Richard, aunt of the bride, and Kelly Francois, sister of the groom, provided scripture readings for the ceremony.
Guests were ushered to their seats by Shawn Guidry, brother of the bride, and Joe Francois, brother-in-law of the groom.
On the arm of her father, the bride wore a strapless gown of champagne satin featuring a sweetheart neckline. The bodice was embellished with beaded embroidery in a scroll motif while a pleated silk sash defined the dropped waist. Gathers on the side and at the back lent fullness to the A-line skirt. The back of the gown flowed into a luxurious semi-cathedral train covered in intricate bead work.
As a headpiece, the bride selected a tiara combined with a single-layer veil of imported ivory illusion lace trimmed with a silver pencil edge.
Keisha carried a bouquet of silk hydrangeas, calla lilies, rose buds, Gerber daisies, moss and berries.
In keeping with tradition, the bride carried the wedding rings of her paternal grandparents and her maternal grandfather as “something old.” Her gown and jewelry, handmade by a friend, served as “something new.” Her “something borrowed” was her mother’s rosary, and a blue bow on her garter belt was “something blue.”
Chaney Guidry, sister of the bride, served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Meagan Young, high school and college friend of the bride, Wendy Lala, college friend of the bride, and Tina Beskow, cousin of the bride.
Bridal attendants were clad in knee-length, burgundy sundresses and carried bouquets of rose buds, calla lilies, hydrangeas, Gerber daisies and moss.
Darrin Seal, friend of the groom, served as best man. Slater Nall, brother of the groom, and Brian Skelton and Chaney Dawson, friends of the groom, were groomsmen.
Nieces of the groom Riley Francois and Kendal Nall participated in the service as flower girls. Kolby Guidry, brother of the bride, was ring bearer.
For her daughter’s wedding day, the mother of the bride, the former Parrie Arceneaux, selected a burgundy, floor-length gown with a beaded bodice and sequined jacket.
The mother of the groom, the former Julie Jackson, also wore burgundy. Her floor-length gown was complemented by a beaded jacket.
Both mothers carried bouquets of rose buds, moss and hydrangeas.
Immediately following the ceremony, the couple was honored with a reception at American Legion Post 77 in Rayne. The guest tables of the reception area were covered with cheese cloth and decorated with centerpieces of pirogues and Spanish moss. Mason jars with gravel bottoms and floating candles provided ambience.
Among the refreshments was the bride’s cake, a five-tier confection of red velvet and vanilla with cream cheese icing. It was trimmed with black fleurs de lis and served by Odelia Simoneaux, godmother of the bride.
The groom’s cake, a black and gold fleur de lis, was made of chocolate with chocolate icing and served by the groom’s family.
Out-of-town guests travelled from Virginia, Texas, Utah, and various points throughout Louisiana.
Prior to the wedding, the groom’s parents hosted a rehearsal dinner at Lagneaux’s Restaurant in Lafayette, where guests were served seafood.
Following a wedding trip to Negril, Jamaica, the couple will reside in Sorrento.
