The bride is the daughter of Pierre and Shirlene Vidrine of Ville Platte. The groom’s parents are Dennis and Jan Fontenot of Ville Platte.
The church was beautifully decorated with pew markers of lavender and white hydrangea accented with English ivy. Two spiral candelabras were decorated with white and lavender roses, purple stock and English ivy tied with lavender satin ribbon.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride was radiant in her slim, mermaid silhouette-style gown of white demir satin. The gown featured a sweetheart neckline and corset closure. Delicate ruching enveloped the bride while the semi-cathedral-length train poured into a balloon hem. Accentuating the high waistline of the bodice was a band of shimmering crystals that wrapped around the back of the gown. The bride wore a simple cathedral-length veil made by her grandmother to complete her attire.
The bride carried a cascading bouquet of white and lavender roses, white orchids and English ivy. A rosary belonging to her great-grandmother was entwined into the bouquet.
Sarah Elizabeth Fontenot of New Orleans served as maid of honor for the special occasion. She wore a lavender-colored, short, strapless, satin gown accented with a sweetheart neckline, pleated bodice and chiffon fabric flower detailing cascading down from the neckline to the waistline. She carried a presentation-style bouquet of white calla lilies, purple tulips and purple stock hand-tied with lavender satin ribbon.
Bridesmaids were Madeline LaHaye, Heidi Fontenot Chustz, sister of the groom, and Megan Doucet, all of Baton Rouge; and Sadie D. Fontenot and Brittany F. Miller, both of Ville Platte. They were attired identically to the maid of honor.

Ushers were Luke Gruwell of New Orleans, Tyler Saucier of Baton Rouge and Steven Stewart of Lafayette.
For her daughter’s special day, the bride’s mother selected a navy blue, strapless, A-line gown of taffeta. The gown featured a pleated bustline with a ruched waist band, which led to the pleated cascading sash in back. The gown was accented with a matching bolero jacket. She wore a matching crystal earring, necklace and bracelet set to complete her attire.
The groom’s mother chose an elegant, Victorian, A-line gown of taffeta. The gown featured a sweetheart neckline, ruched bodice and a beaded top accented with ruffled collar.
