Nicole Ann Hoose and Joshua Calebb Purcell exchanged vows Nov. 12, 2011, in a 3 p.m. marriage ceremony in New Fountainhead Baptist Church, with Dr. Ernest Purcell Sr. officiating.

The bride, the daughter of Pastor Bruce Hoose and Anna Hoose, wore a white, strapless formal satin gown trimmed with champagne embroidery and crystals and a chapel length veil with a tiara. She carried a bridal bouquet of calla lilies.

She was given in marriage by her father, Pastor Bruce Hoose.

The matron of honor was Vanessa Hoose Cimbron, sister of the bride, and Laura Genther Vannest, friend of the bride, was a bridesmaid. They both wore purple gowns and carried bouquets of purple and white calla lilies.

The flower girl was Miss Kinsley Burris, who was dressed in a white gown and carried a basket of rose petals.

The ring bearer was Tommy Vannest, son of the bride’s friend.

The groom’s father, Ernest Purcell Jr., acted as best man, and groomsmen were Chad and Matthew Hoose, brothers of the bride.

The reception was held in Trinity Baptist Church hall, which was decorated in white and purple. Center pieces were crystal vases filled with calla lilies and baby’s-breath.

The cake featured a fountain and was decorated in white with purple flowers.

Following a wedding trip to Panama City, Fla., the couple is at home in Bainbridge. The new Mrs. Purcell is employed at The Bean Cafe and Mr. Purcell is employed at Sanfilippo & Sons.
