Rebecca Abshire, William Humble unite at Gueydan Civic Center
GUEYDAN - Rebecca Nicole Abshire and William Garrett Humble, both of Morse, married March 10, 2012 in an afternoon ceremony which held at the Gueydan Civic Center in Gueydan.
Former Justice of the Peace who is the bride’s great uncle, Michael Chiasson, will officiate the wedding ceremony.
Rebecca is the daughter of Garrick and Suzanne Abshire of Gueydan. Her grandparents are Shirley Chiasson Abshire of Gueydan and the late Earl Adam Abshire as well as the late Ruth Koehler and the late Robert Blaire.
The bride-to-be graduated from Gueydan High School in 2009 and she graduated from McNeese State University in 2011 with an associate of science degree in computer information technology.
William is the son of Jerrilyn and John “Bill” Humble Jr. of Morse. His grandparents are John William Humble Sr. and the late Richard Humble, Mede Breaux and Mamie Breaux.
The prospective groom graduated from Midland High School in 2004 and he currently works for Armour Unlimited.
The bride, escorted by her father, was radiant in her silver Jovani design wedding gown. The dress featured a beaded sweetheart neckline and a ruffled back. She coordinated her wedding trousseau with a fascinator of navy flowers and feathers worn as her headpiece and a bouquet of blue tulips, white lilies and white feathers, wrapped in silver ribbon.
She chose to follow bridal tradition by wearing something old. She wore the groom’s grandmother, Mildred Humble’s wedding ring on her right hand. Her wedding gown represented something new. Intertwined in her bouquet, Rebecca borrowed from her mother a silver dollar pendant on a chain which belonged to her grandmother, Ruth Koehler. The bride’s necklace and bracelets featured blue pearls.
Serving as maid of honor was Jeanne DeVille, her best friend. Her attendant was her cousin, Greta LeDoux. They each chose their own navy blue dress and carried a bouquet of blue tulips, white lilies and white feathers wrapped in navy blue ribbon.
Best man was Canaan Broussard, his best friend. The bride's brother, Robert Abshire was groomsman.
Mother of the bride, the former Suzanne Koehler and the mother of the groom, the former Jerrilyn Breaux, were lovingly escorted down the aisle for their children’s wedding.
The reception, also held at the Gueydan Civic Center, was held immediately following the ceremony.
The bridal cake, served by the bride’s godmother, Debbie Breaux, was a four tier buttercream confection. It featured silver decorations with blue designs and blue ribbon. A whimsical rubber duck wedding couple served as the cake topper.
The groom’s cake was comprised of three chocolate cakes with chocolate icing. One of the groom’s cakes was designed into a farming scene. Another one was a construction scene and the other was an oilfield scene. The cakes were served by the best man’s mother, Sharon Broussard.
Out of town guests traveled from all over Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Colorado and Pennsylvania.
After their wedding the couple plans to reside in Morse.
