Caroline Elizabeth Rittiner and Joseph Birrcher Landry Jr. exchanged vows at Immaculate Conception Church in a ceremony officiated by Fr. Tim Hedrick and co-celebrant Fr. Frank Carabello. Caroline graced the aisle in a Romona Keveza silk taffeta strapless gown with an attached French Alençon lace cap-sleeved topper made by Debbie Gill. She was escorted down the aisle by her father, Greg Rittiner, and carried a bouquet by Meade Wenzel. Her maid of honor and sister, Katie Rittiner Marjanovic, and bridesmaids wore ivory crêpe gowns from Town and Country. The bride and her party were pampered with hair and makeup at H2O Salon & Spa. Hon. Joseph Birrcher Landry, the groom’s father, served as his best man. Vocalists Gregory Rittiner, the bride’s brother, and Sarah Jane McMahon provided music during the ceremony, including Coeur de Jésus, Academy of the Sacred Heart’s traditional song, for the bride and majority of the bridesmaids, who are alumnae. Guests reconvened at the Orpheum Theater to celebrate the newlyweds. Upon arrival, they enjoyed French 75 specialty cocktails and cuisine by Ralph Brennan’s Catering. The bride and groom’s cakes were uniquely displayed in box seating areas of the Orpheum. Z Event Company decorated the theater with mosaic linens, gold Chiavari chairs and custom napkins and cups with Caroline and Joseph’s logo. The Celebrity All Star Band provided entertainment throughout the reception. Arte de Vie and Bride Films captured the fun. With party favors of top hats, masks and LED-lighted balloons, guests sent off the happy couple to their honeymoon in the French Riviera and London. The two now reside in their home in Old Metairie. 80
