The bride is the daughter of Errol Patric and Barbara Guyton of Crowville. The groom is the son of Randy Guillot of Gilbert and Carolyn Brown of Rogers, Ark.
The bride was attended by Erin Little of Winnsboro, maid of honor and Betsey Keyes of Winnsboro, bridesmaid. Attendants wore floor-length black satin gowns with sweetheart necklines and empire waists. They each carried a nosegay of Casablanca lilies, spider mums, roses and hydrangeas, tied with white satin ribbon.

Ryan Holcomb of Gilbert served the groom as his best man. Groomsman was Keith Graham of Winnsboro. Ushers were Trent McCoy and Jake McCoy of Gilbert, and Ethan Poland of Crowville.

Selections included, "I Will Be Here," as the couple's grandmothers and mothers were escorted in; "Canon in D," as the wedding party entered; "When God Made You," during the lighting of the unity candle and license signing and "Answered Prayer," after the closing prayer.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a satin A-line gown featuring a fitted, beaded and metallic embroidered bodice gradually flaring from the waist and extending into a cathedral-length train.
