By Staff
Stephanie Gray Campbell of Troy, Ala., and Matthew Michael Baker of Birmingham exchanged vows Saturday, May 17, 2003, at First Baptist Church in Troy. The Rev. Edwin W. Walter officiated.
Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Newton Kenneth Campbell of Troy and Mr. and Mrs. William Fisher Tynes Quarles of Birmingham.
The bride is the granddaughter of Mrs. Gray Donaldson and the late Mr. Thomas Richard Amesbury of Mobile, and the late Mr. and Mrs. Angus Newton Campbell of Troy.
The bridegroom is the grandson of Mrs. James Sidney Quarles and the late Mr. Quarles of Birmingham and Mrs. Joseph Lewis Baier and the late Mr. Baier of Meridian.
A pre-nuptial concert was held 45 minutes prior to the ceremony, featuring hand selected classical and sacred pieces.
Scripture readers were Katherine Baier Nelson of Southaven and Patricia Amesbury Weed of Mobile.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride chose an original bridal designer gown fashioned of allover, delicate hand embroidered English tulle lace. The bodice was of classic, strapless design, with the waistline marked by small banding of ivory satin.
Tiny matching ivory bows delineated the back closing. The bride chose a cathedral, double-tiered veil of English illusion held by a headpiece of pearls, crystals and aquamarine jewels. Her mother's pearls accessorized the gown.
Candace Carter Nelson of Troy served as maid of honor. Also attending the bride were Anna Stacye Bowen of Montgomery, Victoria Britton Browder of Troy, Jana Leigh Grice of Birmingham, Meredith Kay Miller of Huntsville, Claire Virginia Nelson and Julie Katherine Nelson of South Haven, Melissa Ann Robertson of Bay Minette and Ellen Weed Vaught of Mobile.

Groomsmen were James Albert Barnes IV of Raleigh, N.C., Christopher James Campbell and Newton Kenneth Campbell Jr., brothers of the bride, and David Matthew Nelson, all of Troy, Jimmy Wayne Giles, Walker Preston May and Joseph Todd Miner, all of Birmingham, and Troy Thomas Weed of Mobile.
An outdoor reception was held at the home of the bride following the ceremony.
On the eve of the wedding, Mr. and Mrs. William Fisher Tynes Quarles entertained guests at a cocktail party and dinner in the garden of the Hendricks-Bashinsky home.
After a honeymoon trip to the French Riviera and Venice, the couple resides in Troy.
