The bride entered the church on her father’s arm wearing a wedding gown designed by Charleston native Jodi Moylan. The exclusive design in cafe dutchess satin featured an ivory Alencon lace overlay. The mermaid silhouette was completed by a steel colored ribbon sash at the waist and inverted pleats throughout the skirt. A sweet heart neckline was accented with Alencon lace straps that were constructed from the lace of her mother’s wedding gown. The back of the gown featured a deep V with covered buttons down the bodice and a sweep train. The bride wore her mother’s chapel length veil edged in Alencon lace at the hem.
She carried an artful combination of cream garden roses, auborgine ranunculus, antique hydrangea with wine accents, chocolate and wine colored orchids and flutters of guinea feathers, gently gathered to create a round bouquet of sheer elegance.
In keeping with tradition, the bride wore her mother’s veil as something old and borrowed, her wedding gown as something new and her shoes as something blue.
The bride was attended by maid of honor and friend Emily Katherine Grieshabere. Bridal attendants were Hannah Claire Godeaux, sister of the bride; Simone Fuselier Kirkpatrick, cousin of the bride; Claire Elizabeth Leonards, friend of the bride; Elizabeth Boyne Canady, sister of the groom, and Meagan Anne Boyne, sister of the groom.
The ladies wore Vera Wang eggplant satin sleeveless halter cocktail dresses with a gathered neckline, accent bow and metallic mesh ribbon at the waist. They each carried an elegant bouquet of green cymbidium orchids with accents of galax leaves pulled into a round bouquet and stems wrapped with a wide champagne satin ribbon pinned with pearls.

Both ladies wore a mother’s wrist corsage using vintage style bracelets, a single green cymbidium with a galax leaf and tied with an ivory silk ribbon.
Following the nuptial Mass guests attended a reception set at The William Aiken House in Charleston. The lawn and house were aglow in amber light with vintage crystal chandeliers dripping from every ceiling and tent. Guests entered through the antique wrought iron gates to tables clothed in rich satin eggplants and greens and family photos framed in old, beautiful glass windows. Table tops were adorned with vintage birdcages and candleabras filled with ranunclulus, moss, curly willows and flickering candlelight.
Guests enjoyed hand-rolled cigars, lounged on Victorian leather sofas and danced beside a reflecting pool to the sounds of a large brass party band. The look was rich and timeless.
The bride’s cake was a five tiered round ivory cake made of chocolate hazelnut, coconut and carrot cake. It was covered with fondant and accented with small fleur-de-lis. Eggplant colored ribbon and icing pearls decorated each tier with fresh flowers resting on top.
The groom’s cake was an LSU themed fleur-de-lis red velvet confection.
