Jennifer, escorted by her father, was radiant in a one-piece, diamond white taffeta strapless gown featuring a sheath silhouette with a corset closure. This style emanated sophistication. The asymmetrical ruched bodice was constructed of a sweetheart neckline which flowed into a vintage taffeta skirt. A lovely pearl and rhinestone broach, of the same vintage style, accented the side hip and set off a fluted side drape.
In keeping with tradition, the bride chose as something old and blue a keepsake embroidered handkerchief that was brought back from London 25 years ago by her parents, her earrings as something new and a pearl broach as something borrowed.
Attending the bride as maid of honor was her sister, Rebecca Guidry while Allison Cantrell, also her sister, served as matron of honor. Others attending were bridesmaids Allison Saltzman, Ashley Serrett, Erin Cart and Jada Littleton, all friends of the bride.
Each attendant was ravishing in a lapis-hued, floor-length, sleeveless Grecian-style dress.
Standing as best men were Blake Cuccio, friend of the groom; and Alex Prevost, brother of the groom. Groomsmen were Joey Prevost, uncle of the groom; and Adam Girouard, Casey Orillion and Nick Cahanin, friends of the groom. The male attendants were attired in classic black tuxedoes.
Serving as flower girl was Ella Cantrell, niece of the bride. Miss Cantrell was adorable in a white sleeveless, full skirted ensemble consisting of a round neckline and accented with a satin trim along the hem. She carried a basket of flowers corresponding with the bride’s bouquet. Performing the duties of ring bearer was Charlie T. Cantrell, nephew of the bride.
Once arriving at the church, guests were ushered to their seats by Charles Cantrell, Adam Ware and Josh Reed.
Following the wedding a reception was held at the Petroleum Club of Lafayette. Among the many refreshments enjoyed among the guests was the bride’s cake constructed of four tiers. The magnificent confection contained a Bavarian cream and crushed pecan filling.
The groom was honored with a chocolate delicacy, Bavarian cream filled, depicting the groom’s favorite past time.
Upon returning from a Western Caribbean cruise the couple will reside in Rayne.
