A sunny afternoon paved the way for party-goers at a bridal shower thrown in honor of Trisha Fay Suire, bride-elect of Zachary Christian Pulling.

Hosted by family and friends, the well-attended shower was held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27, at the Crowley Town Club.

For the shower, Trisha was presented with a lovely corsage fashioned from a white calla lily paired with purple orchids and accented with white organza ribbon.

The reception room was brightly decorated with balloons, candles and flowers in the bride’s chosen color of purple. 

Guests enjoyed a wide variety of refreshments, including sandwiches, dips and fruit and cheese trays, along with their choice of coffee or punch. For dessert, the hostesses served several sweets, including traditional shower cake.

Out-of-town guests at the shower traveled from Georgia, Texas and various points throughout Louisiana.

The hostesses for the event were Ashley Abshire, Peggy Breaux, Rebecca Duplechain, Jody Sarver, Paula Sarver, Kathy Suire, Mary Suire, Melissa Suire and Kim Villejoin, along with bridesmaids Whitney Erwin, Alexis Sarver and Nikki Thomas.

The bride-elect is the daughter of Patty and John Suire of Crowley. She is the granddaughter of Shirley and Larry Sarver of Crowley, and Clemile Suire of Crowley and the late Jane Suire.

Trisha is a graduate of Crowley High School and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in petroleum engineering. She is presently employed by Baker Hughes as a wireline account manager.

The prospective groom is the son of Sarah and David Pulling of Eunice. His maternal grandparents are Ann Morris of Eunice and the late Tommy Morris. His paternal grandparents are Helen Pulling of Covington and the late Nathan Pulling.
