Real Wedding Wednesday: Ginny & Ty


If this is your first time checking out the blog, welcome! My name is Tilley and I am your wedding obsessed blogger, bringing you nuptials every week that slay and inspire. This week is no different…


Today’s Bride’s name is Ginny. She choose a lace embroidered gown with a bejeweled belt to marry the love her of life, Ty, this past September.


Gorgeous, right?!?!


Ty and Ginny decided to do a first look so they would be less nervous during the ceremony. This allowed them to savor the moment of seeing each other for the first time.


Ginny said they also loved the first look because it gave them time to laugh at how fancy they both looked. Too cute, y’all.


The groom and his men all wore 50…I mean different shades of Grey 😉 .


The ladies of the bridal party dressed in lilac. I love the fresh white bouquets!


How cute, right?


Oh and lets not forget this little guy. His name is Manly and he belonged to Ginny’s brother who sadly passed before the big day. Manly carried their rings for the ceremony.


Job well done, Manly.


The ceremony took place inside Pender United Methodist Church.


In front of God and their loved ones, they became one!


Then the fun began!


They rode in style to their reception at the Hunter House in a Rolls Royce 1947 Princess Limo that Ginny’s dad surprised the couple with!


Beyond glamorous!


During the reception, fun signs all over the venue really showed off Ty and Ginny’s fun loving personalities.


“Merlot” is definitely better than “hello” in my opinion 😉 .


Fun fact, Ginny and Ty met when they were working at a pet shop in college. They both LOVE animals and so they incorporated that love into their seating plan…


The tables were all named after animals! Too darn cute!


Dibs on the kitty table!


Congrats to the Mr. and Mrs.! Your sparkling personalities made my day! Get it…sparkling?

From the Bride:

What was your favorite detail from the day? “My dad surprised us by renting a rolls Royce 1947 princess limo. With it came a chauffeur/valet named Barry who treated us like absolute royalty and in his suit jacket he had hidden an arsenal of every little thing you could possibly need – floss, a lint roller, mints, safety pins, etc. when he noticed my husband’s pants were a little loose he took his own suspenders off and gave them to him! He was such a fabulous added luxury.”
What advice would you give to a bride to be? “Have an idea of what you want/like but don’t be too dead set on anything. There isn’t one single right way to have your wedding, there are so many options and lots of them are good. Don’t stress too much about every little detail and if things start to change from what you pictured just go with it because there is no way it’s all going to go exactly as you envisioned and sometimes that’s a good thing! Just try to relax because it WILL all come together. If I can plan a wedding anyone can ;)”
