RCA Records Nashville’s Rachel Wammack is officially a married woman.
The “Damage” singer wed Noah Purcell in an intimate ceremony in her hometown of Muscle Shoals, AL on Saturday (August 3). Purcell’s father, Cliff Purcell, officiated the wedding, which was held at the Cypress Lakes Country Club.
Wammack wore a stunning Justin Alexander gown and jewelry from Kendra Scott, while her beautiful up-do was created by Lacey Campbell from Nashville’s Parlour 3.
With decor and florals featuring shades of champagne, blush and navy, the wedding and reception was all about southern elegance. The intimate event also featured an abundance of greenery as well as a custom-designed floral arch and romantic lighting.
After exchanging vows, the couple shared their first dance to “Feels Like Home.”
“We both come from very different versions of home, and when we met, we found home in each other,” Wammack shared in a statement. “This song sums it up for us.”
Wammack and Purcell met over two years ago when she first moved to Nashville to pursue her country music career. In order to make ends meet while she worked on her songwriting, Wammack took a job as a bartender and eventually met Purcell.
“We worked together and we became great friends,” she said. “I began to admire him because of his humor, work ethic, and respect for me. He took interest in me without it feeling like it was flirting, it was all just natural.”
Rachel Wammack is currently on tour in support of her latest releases, “Enough” and “Something People Say.” Later this fall, she’ll head overseas as part of the Country Music Association’s “Introducing Nashville” series.
