The groom’s uncle, the Rev. Monsignor Harry Greig of Lake Charles, Louisiana, officiated the ceremony. Immediately afterward a New Orleans-style brass band led the newly married couple, followed by guests and well-wishers, in a Second Line parade to the reception at the Riverview Room.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Steve Bendig of Vestavia Hills. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Ledet of Lafayette, Louisiana, and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Jackson of Montgomery.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a Monique Lhuillier lace, strapless ivory gown with blush undertones, a sweetheart neckline and a tulle, horsehair mermaid skirt. She carried a bouquet of pink and white peonies and roses with lace from her late grandmother’s veil attached to the base.
Kathleen Benak Flickinger of Birmingham attended the bride as matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Jenna Christina Bee of Hoboken, New Jersey; Paige Brannon Harris of Houston; and Kimberly Chapman Ledet of Atlanta. The bridesmaids wore gold and champagne gowns of their own choosing and carried bouquets of purple, lilac and pink flowers. Emma Claire Ledet, niece of the groom, of Atlanta was the flower girl.
Judd Francis Ledet of Atlanta, brother of the groom, served as best man. Groomsmen were Matthew Stephen Bendig, brother of the bride; Brent Hamilton Harris of Houston; Brian Harlan Casner and Greg Peter Conway of Atlanta; Jabe Lowry Curly of New Orleans; Patrick Jude Duhon of Lafayette; Robyn Moffett Harris of Montgomery; and Andrew Hartselle Mears of Birmingham.
After a wedding trip to the British Virgin Islands, the couple live in Houston.
