Mr. Deville, Miss Vidrine united in marriage
Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Ville Platte provided the setting for a lovely 6:30 p.m. ceremony, Friday, July 18, 2008, uniting Miss Alexandra Claire Vidrine and Mr. John Clyde Deville Jr. in holy matrimony with Msgr. Robert Romero officiating.
The bride is the daughter of Michael and Jamie Vidrine of Ville Platte. The groom’s parents are John Clyde Deville Sr. of Ville Platte and Brenda Deville of Lafayette.
The church was decorated with floral arrangements of fresh, hot pink and ivory-colored roses located on the altar and pew markers of ivory-colored bows accented with pink and ivory-colored roses and asparagus ferns.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride was radiant in her ivory, beaded lace gown featuring an illusion halter-style neckline. The trumpet-style skirt featured a matching ivory-colored satin sash and chapel-length train. She wore a fingertip-length, single-layer veil of illusion embellished with crystal beaded edging. To complete her look, she wore a matching pearl necklace and earring set.
The bride carried a bouquet of fresh, hot pink and ivory-colored roses, white calla lilies, rosemary and baby’s breath. A rosary belonging to the bride’s mother and an ivory-colored handkerchief from the groom’s mother were wrapped around the bouquet.
Tiffany Fontenot of Baton Rouge served as maid of honor for the special occasion. She wore a meadow green, sleeveless, tea-length A-line gown accented with a vee neckline and matching honeydew-colored sash and underlay. She wore pearl accessories and carried a hand-tied bouquet of hot pink and pink roses.
Bridesmaids were Amanda Soileau of Baton Rouge, Jennifer Soileau of Ville Platte, Andre Pitre of Thibodaux and Heather Gillard of New Iberia. They were attired identically to the maid of honor.

For her daughter’s special day, the bride’s mother selected a lilac, floor-length, Victorian lace two-piece suit. The suit was accented with a portrait collar and wrapped bodice top and featured three-quarter-length sleeves and a full skirt. She wore marcasite accessories to complete her attire.
The groom’s mother selected a blush pink, two-piece, floor-length, sleeveless gown with a matching sequined jacket and Austrian crystal accessories.
A reception followed at the Northside Civic Center. The entrance to the hall was decorated with an antique table featuring an arrangement of fresh, hot pink, pink and ivory-colored roses. The guest book and a photo of the couple also was located on the table.
