The Gainey Wedding

Ally & Jimmy were married in Wilmington, NC at First Baptist Church followed by a reception at Ironclad Brewery.

Ally and Jimmy can tell you all about planning and hosting a wedding during a pandemic. Date postponement, getting ghosted by a vendor, navigating government restrictions, last minute guest cancellations, and making sense of the ever-changing day to day circumstances. Nonetheless, Ally handled everything with grace and optimism. It was a fun and beautiful day and they were surrounded by all their favorite people! It doesn’t get much better than that!

They were married at First Baptist Church in downtown Wilmington, NC. The beautiful English Gothic architecture church built in 1870 made for a beautiful setting. It was raining pre-ceremony, but the clouds parted just in time for a newlywed exit to the Tennessee Volunteer’s “Rocky Top” fight song! (Yaass personalization at its finest!!)

The reception was held at Ironclad Brewery. The industrial building built in 1925 carries its own uniqueness which means you don’t need a lot of décor! It is already so beautiful on its own. Ally & Jimmy emphasized this with simple, minimalistic décor.
