Mrs. Philip Louis Brown

Ellen Claire Gauthreaux and Philip Louis Brown were united in the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony on Saturday, November 29, 2014 at The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. The Nuptial Mass was celebrated by Msgr. Keith DeRouen and Fr. Chester Arceneaux.

The bride is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Randy Thomas Gauthreaux. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Stuart Brown Sr.

Given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, the bride wore a romantic fit-and-flare gown with a soft, ivory lace design over a light gold satin. The unique bodice featured a flattering sweetheart neckline as well as demure lace butterfly sleeve trailing down the deep-v back. The bride chose an ivory cathedral length veil embellished with silver threaded embroidery intertwined with pearls and beading. She carried a bouquet of peach garden roses, black eyed anemonies, white ranuculas, and silver brunia berries.
