Given in marriage by her father, the bride was gorgeous in an Allure Bridals Couture ivory lace gown with a café underlay and romantic mermaid silhouette. The sleeveless gown featured a high neckline with a beaded collar and a fitted sweetheart bodice. The back of the gown was finished with sheer illusion embellished with an intricate design of delicate silver beading, and the skirt flowed into a classic sweep train.
The bride paired her gown with a cathedral length scallop-edged sheer ivory veil trimmed with crystals and pearls and held in place with a beaded pearl fixture. For the reception, she changed into a matching waist length veil.
Kallie carried a hand-tied bouquet of garden O’Hara blush roses, ivory Majolica roses, pink astilbe, blush stock, wine dahlias and assorted eucalyptus.
In keeping with tradition, a brooch that had belonged to the bride’s great-grandmother served as “something old” and the bride’s pearl earrings served as “something new.” The bride’s mother’s original wedding band was “something borrowed,” while the bride’s garter belt was “something new.”

Following the service, family and friends joined the newlywed couple for a candlelight reception at the Grand Opera House in Crowley.
The guest tables were topped with tall clear vases and low gold crystal beaded vases filled with flowers matching those of the bride’s bouquet. The food tables featured five-foot candelabras and flowers, and a focal point of the decorations was a delicate swan ice sculpture.
The bride’s four-tiered cake was decorated with ivory lace icing and matching flowers and was surrounded by ivory candles in crystal candlestick holders of varying heights. It was served by the godmother of the bride, Sheryl R. Johnson.
The groom’s cake was made to resemble a crawfish pot full of crawfish with an LSU emblem on the side. It was displayed on a whiskey barrel table and served by Lynn O’Conner, godmother of the groom.
