Catherine Guidry

If you could sum up your wedding in three words, what would they be?
Beautiful, Fun, Perfect

Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
Myself, my mom, aunt and half of the bridesmaids went to school at Ursuline Academy. The groom’s sister also went to school there and his mother taught Kindergarten at Ursuline. The moment I stepped into the Convent while we were looking for a venue, I knew it had to be there! I didn’t even look anywhere else. Ursuline means so much to both of our families.

What was your favorite wedding detail?
My bouquet! I love eucalyptus!

What is your favorite wedding memory from the day?
My favorite wedding memory is when Ryan’s high school band, The Flatbills, who haven’t performed in about 10 years, got on stage and surprised me with Hall & Oates’ “You Make My Dreams.” I had no idea they were going to play a song and I was shocked and amazed! It was so fun and hilarious.

How did you incorporate your personalities into your wedding celebration?
Ryan and his friends all wore suspenders to their high school senior prom so he knew he wanted to surprise his groomsmen with personalized/novelty suspenders. Ryan and I both share the same obsession, sunglasses, so also knew we had to have them at our reception! We love the outdoors so knew we wanted an indoor/outdoor reception with lots of greenery!

What is your wedding song?
“Sweet Child O’ Mine” – Guns N’ Roses
