Originally from Columbia, South Carolina, Wallace came to St. Paul's from St. John's Cathedral in Jacksonville, Florida, where he and his wife Gena, also an Episcopal priest, were serving as canons on the Cathedral's staff. Prior to his service in Jacksonville, Wallace was Associate Rector at Christ Church, Pensacola, Florida, and he began his ordained ministry at Christ Church, Alexandria, Virginia, in a clergy residency program funded by the Lily Foundation. Wallace and Gena originally met at Virginia Seminary, in Alexandria, and they have two wild boys, Nelson (10) and Fin (6).
