In their own words
Q: How did you meet?
A: Cameron and Guy met in January 2014 at Clemson University. In their very first conversation in class, Guy turned on the charm and flirted with Cameron while working through a lab. In the following weeks, the two became great friends and spent their weekends hanging out with one another and watching one of their favorite TV shows, “The Walking Dead,” every Sunday. They became inseparable and officially began “seeing” each other in the fall of 2014, after returning to Clemson from summers apart.
Q: Tell us about the proposal.
A: Two years after they met – after Guy completed his master’s degree and Cameron began her agricultural student teaching internship at West-Oak High School in Oconee County – Guy was ready to pop the question. Rooted in tradition, Guy only thought it proper to ask Cameron’s parent’s blessing before proceeding. On Feb. 22, 2016, Guy took the day off of work to make the excursion to Fairview to gain the approval of Trevor Padgett before asking Cameron for her hand. After an eventful day that will remain in the family funny-story books forever, Guy received the blessing he desired. The following evening, Cameron and Guy joined friends for supper at a downtown Clemson pub called Wingin’ It. Anyone familiar with Cameron and Guy would testify that the two are most enamored by laughter but that Guy likes to particularly test his hilarity limits on a very frequent basis. On this particular night, the two were bickering like songbirds due to some mistaken humor. After returning to Guy’s home in Clemson after supper, Cameron had had enough bickering for the evening and was gathering her things to return to her apartment. By the end of the meal that night, Guy had decided himself that he would ask for her hand that very night (as the ring he had purchased a month before was burning a hole in his roommate’s sock drawer). As the two settled their silly bickering with a kiss, Cameron turned to the door to head home for the night. She turned her head back around to see Guy on one knee in his kitchen floor, holding the most beautiful diamond ring. While covering her her mouth, sinking to her knees, and ripping a hole in her leggings on the doorjamb, she said yes to a life with her best friend.
Q: What part of the wedding day are you most looking forward to?
A: Being joined by friends and family.
Q: How did you choose the venue where you will be married?
A: Jackson’s Landing is a beautiful outdoor location with great Southern hospitality.
