Danyaile Denise Wimberly of Union City and Clint Allen Powell of Rives were recently united in marriage in an afternoon ceremony held at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church No. 2 in Rives. The double-ring ceremony was officiated by the Rev. John Clark, uncle of the bride, of Union City. The bride is the daughter of Dale and Amanda Moyes of Union City. Her grandparents are Jerry and Rosemary Moyes of Indiana and the late Junior and Mae Cavin of Martin. The groom is the son of Stan and Phyllis Powell of Rives. He is the grandson of Allen and Hazel Powell of Union City and the late Leonard and Velma Lippard of Rives. Upon entering the church foyer, guests were greeted by Sheridan Bugg, niece of the groom, of Union City who presided at the register table. The entry table was accented with a fresh arrangement. The choir railing was draped with a garland of fresh magnolia and white bridal tulle, tied with white bows. Beautiful live ferns were placed upon tall columns, draped in white satin. A white wrought-iron candelabrum was a lovely addition to the Victorian wrought-iron arch embellished with an array of greenery and tulle. The pews were marked with white tulle bows. A prelude of favorite songs of the bride and groom was played as guests were seated. Selections included, “A Woman’s Love,” “It’s Your Love,” “She’s Everything,” “Lucky Man,” “She’s My Kind of Rain,” “Lost in This Moment,” “How Do I Live Without You” and “God Blessed the Broken Road.” Roses were placed in remembrance of the deceased grandparents and the mothers were seated as “Because You Loved Me” was played. “To Make You Feel My Love” was played as the bridesmaids began their processional and as the minister, groom and groomsmen took their places at the altar. Jessica Wimberly, sister of the bride, of Union City served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Tessa Scott, sister of the bride, and Christy Bugg, sister of the groom, both of Union City. Each attendant wore a tea-length black and fuschia satin gown and carried long-stemmed carnations. The groom’s father served as the best man. Groomsmen were Jeremy Bugg, brother-in-law of the groom, and Scott Reynolds, friend of the groom, both of Union City. Alex Bugg and Sheridan Bugg, nieces of the groom, both of Union City, preceded the flower girl by rolling out the white carpet intended to set the tone for the entrance of the bride. Alexis Powell, daughter of the groom, of South Fulton served as flower girl. She wore a soft black and fuschia gown. She dropped matching petals down the aisle. The ring bearers were Landon Powell, son of the groom, of Union City and Logan Powell, son of the bridal couple, of Rives. They wore matching white shorts with black polo shirts and carried white satin ring pillows. The children entered the church together as “Angels Among Us” was played. The bride, escorted by her father, entered the sanctuary doors as “Stealing Cinderella” resounded throughout the church. She was given in marriage by her parents. The bride was radiant in a white halter gown, which was embellished with rhinestones and beading. It featured a drop-waist and a chapel-length train. The bride’s bouquet was an elegant hand-tied mixture of miniature daisies, petite carnations and roses accented with pearls. A message from the minister was followed by the exchanging of vows and rings. “I Swear” was played as couple lit the unity candle. Following the pronouncement of marriage, the couple was formally presented to the congregation. The wedding party exited the sanctuary to “From This Moment.” RECEPTION A reception was held in the church fellowship hall. The bride’s table was covered with a white tablecloth, draped in fuchsia tulle, accented with fuchsia and black tulle bows. The center of the table held a beautiful three-tiered square white and strawberry cake trimmed in fresh flowers and ribbon. The guests also enjoyed strawberry punch, nuts and mints. The groom’s table was decorated in Tennessee Volunteer memorabilia. His cake was a one-layered chocolate cake with orange and white icing. Serving at the reception were Alex Bugg, Claudia Hoffman of Marmaduke, Ark., and Brittany Bizwell of Rives, both cousins of the groom. After tossing the wedding bouquet and garter, the couple departed from the church while guests made a pathway filled with bubbles. The couple resides in Rives. Published in The Messenger 7.30.08
