April Joy Jackson and Shaun Edward Powell were united in marriage on April 26, 2008, in a double ring ceremony, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, the Rev. Kevin McGrath officiating.

The bride is the daughter of Andy and Pam Jackson of Vinemont.

The groom is the son of Gary and Deborah Powell of Vinemont.

Wedding music was provided by Barry Stoner, music director.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a vintage formal gown of timeless elegance in rose Duchess satin and diamond white silk organza. The strapless gown’s focal interest was the beautiful antique white overlay of silk organza richly embellished with Vintage Venice lace. The molded princess bodice flowed into a soft A-line skirt and swept into a chapel-length train. The gown was adorned with a hand-embroidered chapel-length veil, trimmed out in four tiny scalloped rows of alternating baby pearls, rose pearls, and loops of gold lamé, then crowned with an antique silver plated tiara of European swarovski crystals and tiny teardrop pearls. She carried a bridal bouquet of all white feather top tulips, with stems hand-wrapped in satin and faux pearls.

Elizabeth Neeley was matron of honor. Bridal attendants were Lisa Anewalt, Juliana Robertson, Cresha Bradley, Chastity Puckett, Rachel Taylor, Lindsey Neeley, Nan Waldkirch, Breanna Smith and Allison Harris. They wore tea-length strapless gowns of silver frost satin and chiffon. Each girl carried a bouquet of blush pink tulips and wore a petite cross necklace of Australian crystals.

Keirstin Piatt was flower girl. She wore an ankle-length hand smocked white summer cotton gown with white ribbon and lace trim. Her headpiece was a wreath of fresh baby’s breath with trailing white ribbon. On her wrist she wore a child-size swarovski eggshell pearl bracelet. She carried three long-stem white roses for each mother, along with her little pomander ball of soft pink faux rosebuds.

Jason Hale was best man. Groomsmen were Gary Powell, Michael Powell, Cary Montgomery, Patrick Caffey, Gary Wilkinson, Michael Carden, Justin Pitchford, Gabe Argo and Caleb Screws.

Carter Caffery was ring bearer.

The reception was held at Windbrook Estate in Cullman.

Following a wedding trip to the Grand Canyon, the couple resides in Cullman.
