Honor Guard, Civil War

In a novel I am writing, I am describing a (fictional) wedding in the 31st Illinois Regiment, in camp. I understand that an honor guard was sometimes present at ceremonial occasions, and I saw one mentioned in an article about Civil War wediings, though I can't seem to find the mention, to my frustration.
Does anyone know if honor guards were used this way, and how?
