Carri Hoops and Jesse Noel
Carri Michelle Hoops and Jesse Ray Noel, of Soldotna, were married in an afternoon, outdoor ceremony Saturday, June 16, 2007, at the home of the bride's parents in Soldotna. The wedding was Renaissance themed. Rev. Robert Reasner officiated.
The bride is the daughter of John and Teresa Hoops. Carri's gown was embroidered white-on-white chiffon with an illusion neckline and poetic Renaissance sleeves. She carried an all-white bouquet of lilies, stephanotis and lizianthus with green ivy accent.
The service began when she arrived on her horse, with bagpipes playing in the background. Nicole Hoops, sister of bride, was the maid of honor. Julianne Noel, Ellie Plate and Kayla Griggs served as bridesmaids. The bride's attendants wore cornflower blue floor-length chiffon gowns with Renaissance sleeves and carried a single white lily and a basket of rose petals.
The groom is the son of Susan Jones of Sterling and Ted Noel of Neah Bay, Wash. Jesse wore a black tuxedo, white shirt, cobalt blue vest and tie. His best man was Adam Kunkel of Nikiski. The groom's brothers, Andy Noel, Joseph Noel and Isan Huggard of Neah Bay served as groomsmen and brother of groom, Josiah Jones of Sterling, was the usher.
The outdoor reception was held at the bride's parents' home. The wedding cake was made by brides' grandmother, Janice Wilsack of Nikiski, and the food was prepared and served by Sheri Struthers of Sterling.
Joining the couple to celebrate their special day were honored guests: the bride's grandmother, Dorothy Hoops from Foley, Ala.; groom's father and stepmother, Ted Noel and Jane Simpson of Neah Bay; and Angelique Coleman of Neah Bay; bride's aunt and cousin, Jolanda Wilsack and Murak of Colorado; and the bride's great-grandparents, Morris and Doris Porter of Nikiski.
