About the dress

The bride wore a gown of ivory silk with a lace neckline and a cathedral length veil with lace embellishment. She carried a bouquet of her own design of fresh ivory roses, pink garden roses, and white ranunculus. Bridesmaids wore navy blue silk cocktail dresses and carried bouquets of fresh ivory roses, pink garden roses, and white anemones accented with ivory and navy striped ribbons.

Place of ceremony

The mid autumn ceremony took place on the front lawn of Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. The celebration's start was heralded by the ringing of the plantation's bell rung by Dylan Bimah, godson of the bride, and Brennan Clouatre, nephew of the groom. The couple was joined in marriage by officiant Jessica Landry Clouatre, sister-in-law of the groom.

Our wedding songs

A string trio by South Louisiana Wedding Music sent lovely notes into the air as the wedding began. During the ceremony, Nashville country music singer/songwriter Casey Black, groomsman, performed a song. A poetry piece was recited by Randy Clouatre Sr., father of the groom. The reception band, Transit, including 4 uncles and 1 cousin of the bride, entertained the crowd with their lively sounds the evening through. The celebration ended as the bride tossed her bouquet from the grand balcony and the couple dashed away through a parade of family and friends waving sparklers.
