How We Met

Cam and I met at UMass Amherst but somehow not until our senior year. We lived in the same building our freshman year and had many mutual friends… we even knew each other’s best friends! Though Cam wasn’t there at the time, I had attended a party at his apartment just a year prior to our introduction.
It wasn’t until the Fall of our senior year that I would meet my future husband. I was newly single when I crashed Cam’s Halloween party in October of 2012. After a night out, my roommates and I were headed home when fate would have it’s way. We saw another party and decided to stop in! It was not long before we were introduced by a mutual friend (my roommate), and despite the costumes, this ballerina and band-aid-wearing rap star instantly hit it off. We dated throughout college and the following summer. I then ended up back in New Jersey which came with a few months of separation until another round of fate hit and we ended up back in the same city.
After a few months of separation, and with me being back in Boston, Cam and I decided to meet for drinks. Drinks led to dinner and then we made our way to the top of the Custom House (my favorite building in Boston). That night brought us back together where we’ve been ever since!
Our Proposal Story
Fast forward a few years to July 5, 2017. We decided to spend a night being tourists in Boston after I had put together a summer bucket list to explore the city more. The day began with lunch followed by a stroll along Newbury Street. We then took a ride on the swan boats in the Public Garden, and explored the Boston Public Library. We were planning to see the play Wicked that night when Cam suggested we grab drinks quickly beforehand. He surprised me with a stop at the Custom House (another spot on my list) where he led me to the deck. It was the exact same spot where we had kissed upon our reunion years ago, that Cam asked me to marry him. I do not think I let him finish asking before answering, “Of course!” To this day, I’m still not sure of everything that he said due to all of my excitement to marry him.
Cameron and I will be married in Bristol, Rhode Island on October 19th of this year, and I can’t wait to call him my husband!
