Cameron's family jokes that I am her protoge, which is true. We have the same taste in fashion, and both of us were/are English majors and business minors. We like doing the same things and just get along so well, it's hard to remember we have three years in age between us! Anyway, she and her now-husband Tommy dated for three-ish years and were engaged for a little over a year before they were married this weekend, and I love them both dearly!!! I am so happy I was able to be a part of their special celebration.

Friday evening was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, and while we were all line up in the chapel, listening to Cam and Tommy practice their vows, I definitely got teary eyed. It seems like so long ago I was sitting in Cam's apartment in the Village when she asked me to be in the wedding, and now the day was finally here!! After practice, The Lenz family hosted a beautiful dinner to honor the newlyweds with great food and even better company. I met so many wonderful people and was able to spend some quality time with my friends I already had!
Then came WEDDING DAY! The bridesmaids got up and had a casual brunch toasting Cameron and Tommy with mimosas (and sparkling cider for me!) and just relaxed as we waited to get our makeup done (awesome!) and to do our hair and get dressed. The day was so relaxing and was a fun time to catch up with the girls, take pictures, and get pampered. Once we were all dressed, we helped Cameron get into her dress and take a few photographs. She was literally one of the most beautiful brides I have EVER seen. Positively radiant. I know how excited she was and her smile truly showed it! The bridesmaids carpooled to the chapel, and because it is so small, we had to wait in the cars until the very last minute to walk into the chapel so we could avoid seeing guests.

The reception was just as wonderful. Good food, friends, family, and dancing made for a wonderful evening. I was dateless since Andrew was out of town visiting family, but I was still able to get some dancing in with some groomsmen, Daiten, and some of my friend's dates! I had so much fun being silly and dancing with the girls, also, especially Sydney, one of Tommy's nieces and a junior bridesmaid!

|So glad Anna Frances was there! Happy Honeymoon Cameron and Tommy!|
