The double ring ceremony took place Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. Judge M’elise Trahan officiated the ceremony.
The scripture was read by Sandra Dorr, godmother of the bride.
The bride is the granddaughter of Michael and Umae Meaux and Gloria L. Faulk, all of Crowley, and the late Lawrence “Harry” Faulk.
The groom is the son of Alan and Bonnie Miller of Crowley. His grandparents are Lawrence and Marie Trahan and Shirley Miller, all of Crowley, and the late Roland Miller.
Escorted by her father, the bride was beautiful in her strapless champagne gown of Lux satin with silver thread and crystals. The gown, designed by Casablanca, featured dramatic bead work which accentuated the waistline of the gown. Two front box pleats and three back box pleats gave fullness to the skirt and three dimensional beaded lace was placed at the semi-cathedral length train, which continued up the waistline. Her elbow length veil was two layers and matched the details in the gown. To complete her bridal ensemble, Bridget carried a vibrant bouquet of burnt orange calla lilies and oriental lilies.
Bridesmaids were Pamela Faulk Dauphine, sister of the bride; Melissa Miller, sister of the groom; and Chantel Girouard, friend of the bride.
Each bridesmaid wore a spice chiffon floor length gown with a strapless empire bodice design, featuring a softened sweetheart neckline and they carried a single, white long stemmed calla lily.
Groomsmen were Nicholas Dauphine, brother-in-law of the bride, and Jeremy Richard, cousin of the groom.
The ring bearers were Evan and Ethan Dauphine, nephews and godchildren of the bride.
The mother of the bride, the former Vickie Meaux, wore a silver formal length gown. The strapless gown featured pleated detail, and a centered brooch at the empire waist. She coordinated this with a long sleeved bolero with pleats at the end of the sleeves.
The mother of the groom, the former Bonnie Trahan, wore a floor length two tone satin gown. The top was grey and the bottom was black. She wore a three-quarter sleeved bolero in black.
Both mothers were adorned with corsages of white sweetheart roses and daisies.
Immediately after the vows were stated, a reception followed. The tables at The Crossing at Mervine Kahn were covered in ivory linens. To complete the traditional look, very dressy glass globes of assorted shapes and sizes were highlighted with glowing candles.
The bridal cake was a square three-layered confection with ivory fondant icing and butter pecan filling. Coordinated with her bridal bouquet, each layer of the cake was surrounded by spice colored ribbon. Burnt orange calla lilies and oriental lilies filled in the raised layers.
The groom was dressed in an ivory tuxedo with a “max-4 camouflage” vest. The groom’s cake featured a backdrop replication of an old, rustic cypress front porch, complete with camouflage and hunting gear. The chocolate cake had chocolate filling and was iced in a camouflage design.
After returning from their honeymoon the couple will reside in Crowley.
