There’s no shortage of females making their mark on the business world. Here’s a small sample of just a few women (and a guy) to keep your eye on this year, as we move forward in organizing and grooming the newest and freshest bridal show in Lafayette.

Robin Hebert


The Wedding Doula, Robin is a wise oracle who instinctively connects the dots in the vast wedding industry. An event coordinator for 10 years with a mission to connect people, Robin genuinely believes that if she can just bring people together, they can do a world of good. Whether you are a wedding vendor or a bride-to-be, she has a commitment to helping everyone she is affiliated with achieve their goals.

Michelle Laverne


Michelle is a newlywed who can’t remember a time when she didn’t love weddings. In 1995, she became a Certified Wedding Planner. Since then she has worked with many of the area’s leading vendors and many local brides. Michelle thrives on learning every facet of the wedding planning industry. She continues to attend wedding seminars, even though she is now semi-retired to spend more time with her husband.

Stephanie Theriot


With a background in Fashion Merchandising and plenty of boutique experience, Stephanie branched out and formed her own fashion styling company: Style With Steph. She’s obsessed with fashion, reading, and wine. As Style Editor of MOTIF Magazine, she will bring her passion for creating style to life.

Catherine Guidry


With a background in architecture and a passion for experiencing new places, Catherine seeks to photograph couples who love art and live life to the fullest. Over the past six years, she has photographed over 200 weddings with couples from around the country. A recent newlywed herself, Catherine enjoys time with her husband Brad and their 5lb Chihuahua, Chaos.

Macie Menard


As a graphic designer, Macie is a creative original who intentionally takes a simplistic approach to her designs. Macie married her best friend in November of 2013. Some would classify her wedding as DIY, but in truth, it was much more than that. Her vision was creative and original but with a romantic touch. When she’s not sprinkling elegance on everything she’s giddy about, Macie enjoys traveling with her husband.

LeeAnn B. Stephan


If natural light was a lightening bug, LeeAnn would capture it. LeeAnn photographs the natural beauty of what is present. Documenting fleeting moments can be difficult—somehow for her, roping in these breathtaking images is as effortless as clicking the light on and off. LeeAnn resides in Lafayette with her husband and sweet babies, in a cute house with a lot of vintage furniture, keyboards, and odds and ends from garage sales. They love to rummage. She loves all types of food and will be the first person in the food line…always.

Mary Hooks Baudoin


A seasoned marketing executive, Mary moved from Avoyelles Parish to Lafayette Parish in 2013. She has managed over 200 weddings as the former Director of Acadian Village with an extensive background coordinating fundraisers for non-profits throughout Louisiana. She and husband, Ronnie Speedy Baudoin, love spending time with their precious daughter, Alexis at their home in Carencro. Lifelong animal lovers, they have 2 dogs and 4 cats, all rescued from local shelters.

Stephen F. L. Barker


Sporting an eye for fashion, combined with a flair for event planning -and a sharp tongue to boot, Stephen has made a splash among the many fashion shows, private events and Mardi Gras balls he has coordinated. He strives to bring a little excitement and a lot of sassy to every event he touches.
