Escorted by her brother, Thomas C. Pellissier, the bride wore an ivory A-line, side drape, strapless gown with beaded lace details on the bodice and skirt. As she walked down the aisle, trailed by a beautiful chapel train with beaded lace she carried a lovely bouquet of ivory and taupe roses. A silver rosary, inherited from her namesake Emma Maurin, adorned the bouquet. A diamond bracelet, which belonged to her late grandmother Lucille Maurin McGinn, added another nostalgic touch to this special day.
The maid of honor, Megan Pellissier, is the daughter of the bride. She wore an ivory A-line dress with a beaded bodice and side drape to mimic the bride’s dress.
Felicity Lejeune, daughter of the groom and junior bridesmaid, wore a lapis A-lined satin dress with pleating at the bust, to mimic the bridesmaids.

The bride’s cake had three tiers, frosted with ivory butter cream icing, decorated with lapis ribbons streaming down from beneath a porcelain statue of a bride and groom and encircling each layer. The white confection layers had strawberry fillings top and bottom and lemon filling in the middle.
The groom’s cake was red velvet with cream cheese shaped like a snap-on toolbox topped by a miniature 18-wheeler given to the groom by the best man.
