For her wedding day, the bride selected her grandmother’s handkerchief as something old, her dress was something new, her wedding day jewelry as something borrowed, and her garter was something blue.
Escorted by her father, the bride wore a strapless wedding gown of white bridal satin featuring a corset-styled bodice accentuated with embroidered beaded designs and scalloped waistline. The A-lined, floor-length skirt was completed with embroidered lace edging and a cathedral-length train. A two-tiered headpiece was edged with a satin rolled hemline and held with a simple hair comb. She carried a bridal bouquet of deep red roses nestled among white calla lilies and gathered with blue sheer ribbon.
Attending her sister as maid of honor was Taylor Hollier. Bridal attendants were Natalie Cormier, groom’s sister-in-law; Leigha Menard, sister of the groom; and Kelsey Primeaux, cousin of the bride.
Bridal attendants each wore a strapless, floor-length gown of black satin completed with a kick train. Each carried a small bouquet including a single white calla lily and single deep red rose gathered with black chiffon ribbon.
Serving as flower girls were Leikyn Cormier, the couple’s daughter, and Kailey Hollier, sister of the bride. Each wore a sleeveless, T-length, white dress with the skirt featuring a chiffon overlay. Each carried a nosegay of deep red roses and white baby’s breath gathered with black satin ribbon.
Attending his brother as best man was Travis Cormier. Groomsmen were Tyler Cormier, brother of the groom; Jason Cormier, uncle of the groom; and Tyler Primeaux, cousin of the bride.

Among the refreshments provided for their guests was the bride’s cake, a three-tiered, white confection created of square layers. White scroll work was noted throughout the cake, which was also accented with miniature deep red roses, black trim, and topped with a silver double-heart picture. The cake was served by Paulette Primeaux, the bride’s godmother.
The groom’s cake was a traditional chocolate sheet cake topped with a miniature fishing scene. The cake was served by Junice Breaux Clement, the groom’s grandmother.
