Guests were ushered to their seats by Brett Hoffpauir, uncle of the groom, and Benny Amos and Dalton Schexnayder, friends of the groom.
Musical selections for the nuptials were performed by vocalist Vinassa Benoit, trumpeter David Glover, flutist Ana Kilmore and vocalist and guitarist Myron Ropp.
Selected Scriptures were read by Lional Boudreaux, grandfather of the groom, and Keith Leonards, friend of the bride and groom.
Escorted by her father, the bride was gorgeous in a Mori Lee strapless silk shantung gown featuring a sweetheart neckline. Fine vertical pleating defined the fitted bodice, and asymmetrical draping beginning at the waist continued down the fitted torso. A cascading ruffle flowed from the waistline to define the gown’s mermaid silhouette before meeting the waterfall draping of the chapel-length train. A large handmade pearl and feather applique embellished the defined waistline.
For her headpiece, Stacie selected a classic birdcage veil with vintage-inspired details. The elegant handcrafted piece featured ivory and cream flowers and feathers entwined with long strands of pearls that flowed down through the bride’s hair.
Stacie carried a mixed bouquet of green hydrangeas, burgundy cattails, plum wisteria and delphinium interspersed with burgundy, plum and tan feathers woven through with pearls.
In keeping with tradition, the bride carried her great-grandmothers’s rosary as “something old.” Her dress and veil were “something new.” Stacie’s mother’s pearl necklace and her cousin’s earrings were “something borrowed,” and a blue cameo embellishing the garter handmade by her mother was “something blue.”
The bride’s two best friends, Autumn Gaspard and Kimberly Kostic, served as matron and maid of honor, respectively.
Serving as bridesmaids were Lauren Gunter and Annie Rabalais, friends of the bride; Karen Simon, cousin of the bride; Ashley Baguex, sister-in-law of the bride; and McKenzie Jabusch, niece of the bride. Jennah Baguex, another niece of the bride, served as junior bridesmaid.
The bridal attendants wore two different styles of full-length gowns in moss green satin, both designed by Vera Wang. One of the designs was a fitted dress featuring asymmetrical seaming and an asymmetrical bias-cut flange that wrapped from waist to hip for an elegant, flowing silhouette. The other was a full-length draped gown with a back featuring an exposed zipper for added detail.
The bridal attendants carried vintage-inspired bouquets of feather plumes in shades of burgundy, plum and tan. Dark green pheasant feathers matching the attendants’ dresses were interspersed, and the bouquets were hand-tied with satin cream bows. Strings of pearls flowed gracefully down from the bows and bottoms of the bouquets.
Caitlyn Faulk, godchild of the groom, served as flower girl. She looked exquisite in a custom-made reproduction of the bride’s dress and matching feathered birdcage veil.
Corey Faulk, brother of the groom, served as best man.
Tommy Baguex, brother of the bride, and Robert Watson, Larry Derille, Samuel Reggie, Grant Gaspard and Anthony Gaspard, all friends of the groom, stood as groomsmen. Chandler Myers, nephew of the groom, served as junior groomsman.
Carlin Hoffpauir, cousin of the groom, served as ring bearer.
For her daughter’s wedding day, the mother of the bride, the former Jennie Marie Meche, selected a breathtaking strapless chiffon gown. The black and ivory bodice was overlaid with lace and embellished with bead work. The dress featured an empire waistline with a soft black tiered skirt. A key hole jacket matching the dress’s overlay completed the ensemble.
The mother of the groom, the former Catherine Lynn Boudreaux, wore a pewter-colored full-length gown with overlapping cascading tiers. The strapless bodice was perfectly complemented by a coordinating bolero jacket with three-quarter sleeves and brilliant beading.
Both mothers wore a red delphinium bloom accented with pearls and feathers and completed with white ribbon.
Following the ceremony, the couple was honored with a reception at the Rice Festival Building in Crowley.
The wedding party traveled there in style in vintage automobiles including a 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline, 1956, 1957 and 1968 Chevrolet Bel Airs and a 1969 Lincoln Continental.
The guest tables were covered with black cloths with ivory lace overlays. They were decorated with handmade feathered picture frames displaying photographs of the bride and groom, and wooden vases filled with bouquets of feathers and pearls arranged by the bride’s mother.
The groom’s aunt, Lisa Hoffpauir, made both the bride’s and groom’s cakes.
The bride’s five-tiered red velvet cake was decorated with white icing and trimmed with black, burgundy, plum and ivory feather plumes. Supporting the cake in the center was a cherub vase that had belonged to the groom’s late grandmother. The cake’s bottom tier was wrapped in cascading ruffled fondant to resemble the skirt and train of the bride’s gown. A replica of the bride’s birdcage veil graced the top of the cake.
The bride’s cake was served by the bride’s godmother, Debbie Jabusch.
The groom’s cake featured a vintage theme and was decorated with a replica of one of the vintage cars used by the wedding party and an old “rockabilly” guitar.
The cake was showcased in an elaborate stage set designed and built by the groom’s brother to replicate a 1950’s-style diner.
The groom’s cake was served by the groom’s godmother, Debbie Arceneaux.
Out-of-town guests traveled from Arkansas, Texas and various points throughout Louisiana.
On the Thursday evening prior to the wedding, the groom’s mother and stepfather held a rehearsal dinner at El Dorado’s in Crowley.
Following a wedding trip to New York City, the couple will reside in Crowley.
