Ashley Rae Credeur of Lake Charles and Aaron Jude Hebert of Thibodeaux were united in Holy Matrimony on May 23, 2008 at St. Michael Catholic Church in Crowley in a 7 p.m. Nuptial Mass. Father Gary Schexnayder officiated the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Pappy and Jennifer Pousson of Egan and Bryan and Angelique Credeur of Crowley, and the granddaughter of Dorothy Wattenbarger of Iota, Donald Atterberry of Memphis, Mo. and Phyllis Credeur of Crowley. She is a 2003 Iota High School graduate, and a 2007 graduate of McNeese State University with a degree in accounting and finance.
The groom is the son of Bobby Lee and Jane Hebert of Pine Island. He is a 1999 graduate of Hathaway High School, and a 2005 graduate of McNeese State University in chemical engineering. He is currently employed as a field engineer with Schlumberger.
The bride, escorted by her stepfather Pappy Pousson, was stunning in a full length white satin gown with a heavily beaded and embroidered bodice and V-back. Completing the gown were satin-covered buttons and beading down the back that ran the length of the full cathedral train. The headpiece was a beautiful two-layered, fingertip-length veil dotted with pearls and crystals along the edge, and was adorned by a Swarovski crystal and pearl comb. She carried a bouquet consisting of flowers in various shades of coral, pink, peach, green and ivory. In keeping with tradition, the bride carried something borrowed and something old, her great-grandmother’s wedding ring; something new, her wedding gown; and something blue, the bride and groom’s names embroidered in her wedding gown.
Serving as matron of honor was Erin Esthay, friend of the bride. Bridal attendants were Ashley Hanks, friend of the bride; Mary Hebert, sister of the groom; and Valerie Kratzer, Jamie Chapman and Micah Darbonne, all friends of the bride. They were elegant in coral satin strapless A-line gowns with pleated bodices and dropped waists, with ivory sashes at the natural waistlines. They each carried a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet.
Serving as best man was Alan Hebert, brother of the groom. Serving as groomsmen were Adam Landry, Richard Nielson, Richard Thompson, John Compton and Lenny Parker, all friends of the groom.
Serving as ushers were Duke Daigle, cousin of the bride; and Kurt Regan, friend of the bride and groom.
