Real Weddings: Jaimie Alexis Brown & John Kenneth Dewberry

On July 8, 2018, Jaimie and John were married at the Belmond Hotel Caruso in Italy in front of 120 guests. The bride wore a dress by Anne Barge and was walked down the aisle by her father. The couple met post-college at a Georgia Tech football game, when Jaimie was working with the institute’s athletic development and John, who had been a successful quarterback as an undergrad, was attending as an honored alumnus. They were engaged at their favorite spot, The Cliffs of Baltard, in Doonbeg, Ireland, close to where the groom has a home. During the ceremony, the couple took communion with a chalice from Jerusalem that the bride’s parents gifted them. It was an important element of the ceremony as each was raised with a strong sense of faith, and it served as a reminder of the groom’s father, who had been a preacher and passed away in 2011. Their first dance was to “Marry Me,” by Train. For their honeymoon, Jaimie and John traveled for seven weeks to six countries covering eight resorts, from Sicily, Corsica, and Greece to Switzerland, Austria, and Ireland.
